Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 review

Forget about Panasonic if you care about image quality.
I've been testing this camera thoroughly and it is an overall great camera in many aspects. But I am very dissapointed about the sensor performance. If after seeing these reviews and the sample images available in this site you still want to get one, let me know. I'll be happy to get rid of mine.

Problems:

"Noise" is a huge problem. This amount of noise is far from being even acceptable. I honestly would rate this camera's sensor in somewhere in between bad and useless! Our friends of DP Review stated it accurately: .."it is like buying a Ferrari and discover later that it maxes out at 55 mph". A huge dissapointment.
