LX100-1 + Polariser + Proper 24mm
2

In principle my TZ200 makes my LX100 redundant because (a) within the common 24-75mm range its IQ is at least as good (better, let's face it) and (b) its ergonomics are far superior.

And yet I keep coming back to the LX100, and most of the reason that I do this is that I can put a polariser on the lens and the other reason is that the LX100's 24mm is significantly wider than the TZ200's 24mm.

Polarisers on wide-angle lenses create a distinct deep blue area in sunny skies, and wide angle lenses used from close in make tall buildings fall over backwards/sideways. Some people seem to hate these effects and try to mitigate them, but to me they just say, polariser on a wide-angle lens.

Also, for a little extra punch set white balance to 'cloudy' even if there's not a cloud in the sky. I remembered to do this in some of these pictures, but maybe not all.

The new Panasonic S5 comes with a 20-60mm kit lens and no doubt a filter thread, and I'm reasonably sure that when my LX100 finally dies I'll be replacing it with one of those.
