Cute, clever and well built the LX series practically established the segment of enthusiast compact cameras. In some cases its files had nothing to be jealous of entry to mid level APS Dslr's at that time, mainly because of its lens.
Two pro friends of mine always carried this little fellow in their pockets.

It will be something between 105 - 135 mm, f 2.8 and expensive, that is why they promote it through Insta, just like every fashion item producer would chose to do... Its performance will excel in an area covering the 3% of circumstances by a margin of 5% which margin another 20% of potential buyers would comprehend as something unique and sell it as such to people they crave to be persuaded from something to spice up their lives... No..?

A serious APS competitor by all means. Maybe the meanest guy in the segment. Good price, excellent hi ISO performance. Some lenses in this gallery delivered top IQ.

On article Throwback Thursday: Our first cameras (391 comments in total)

I can't recall its name. It was a Russian one. Smeha or Diana. I was 9 y.o. I could not even load the film, I was going to my neighborhood's photo shop for that. Later on a I had a Kodak Instamatic 233x. My first camera that I bought with my own money was the Pentax MX with the 50mm, f 1.4 lens. I still have it in very good condition.

Great little fellow...
Pana created the niche of travel zoom cams and this is to be mentioned...

At least these guys are sincere... Canon is to remain #1, that's it.

Οne thing is for sure: if s/o deals with whatever has to do with Nikon, becomes Nikonish...
Nikon functions in its own way, a rather odd way...

Seems there is a rather important market for lenses... Too many manufacturers in many niches...

Must be the water... Someone puts something in it...

Chris Yates: Am I the only one tired of manufacturers not disclosing pricing when releasing new products, when each product was developed with a budget and a target price?

No u are not!
Manufacturers who don't suggest even a rough pricing (i.e over a $1000, even via rumors), they just speculate in pricing.

In reply to:

jdc562: Considering all the inferiorities the review lists for this camera, it looks to me like DPreview lacks the integrity--honesty--and courage to dare to give the holy Leica-branded camera a more accurate lower numeric score. They give the Sony a99ii, with its superior features, an 85%, but give the Leica 84%. I bet if DPreview were given this exact same camera disguised as a different brand, the numeric score would have been far lower.
This is a fawning, obsequious, prejudiced score. DPreview, I'm not just disappointed, I am disgusted.

@Ebrahim Saadawi
Reading numbers was never a problem. Problem starts when we want to interpret numbers. If we cannot do it, we serve numbers per se, as an alibi to deliver camouflaged ad hominem arguments.

It's like you have a lot of money and want to make let's say a very very good soccer team. You buy the best players for every role, the best coach but you can never win the Championship. During season your team played the best ball we' ve seen the last 10 years, managed to lose from some obviously inferior teams in its home and the half season's highlights are from your team who finished fourth to sixth. You still have people coming to see your team waiting a season only to see 3-4 excellent games and they love to talk about the team's capacities if only...

aris14: I have the notion that 3 out of 4 potential buyers of this kind of lenses could please themselves buying a Pana FZ 1000 instead.

You mean "wildlife" photogs I guess...
I fully agree with the second part...

trungtran: Mediocre is a little harsh, might not be for you, but there is a market out there for cheap electronics. Not everyone can afford an iPad.

Archos has also launched some great products (MP3, MP4 players) not only in quality output but in building quality as well...

borgein: Arfh. The biggest deciding factor on how film "looks" nowadays is the SCANNER and the person using the scanner, and how the tiff files are processed to taste, not the film itself (at least for color film).

Direct..? You use a procedure like Cibachrome?

Ilford HP5 and Fujicolor 200 / Portra 160.
I used both of them. I really also liked and used Tri-X and Agfa Ektar.
