A review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 with Firmware 2.0 was just published on Neocamera. Firmware 2.0 was released last month improving performance and noise-reduction at high-ISO. This is an advanced compact camera with a complete set of manual controls and support for both external lighting via a hot-shoe and eye-level shooting thanks to an optional EVF.
The LX5 is built around a 10 megapixels CCD behind a bright ultra-wide 24-90mm F/2-3.3 lens with image stabilization. The sensor has a full-resolution sensitivity range from 80-3200 plus reduced resolution ISO up to 12800. It is capable of 2.5 FPS shooting and 720p HD video capture as well.
