    LX5 full spec sheet leaked....

    http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-e...model.DMC-LX5K


    Here is a screen shot from the page assuming the link will be deactivated.

    Highlights:
    New 24-90 zoom range
    Still keeps multi aspect ratio sensor
    Lens is f2 -3.3
    Optional EVF

    Need to find a way to get this to show larger....

    Looks lovely, but I can't let myself think about this ... sticking with my GXR, and no more camera purchases for at least a year!! (Hold me to this, please!)
    Regards,

    It will be interesting to see what this means in the spec sheet....

    ISO

    Auto / i.ISO / 80 / 100 / 200 / 400 / 800 / 1600 / 3200 / 6400* / 12800* (* by pixel mixed readout)
    High Sensitivity (ISO 1600-12800)

    Looks like a small update of the LX3, not really what most were hoping for.... a bigger sensor, a good screen.
    Never mind.

    Unfortunately they seem to stay with small sensor. Doing higher ISO by some sensor improvements and even more in camera processing. This is disappointing for me.

    I will be keen to see the back panel of this new model. It will eventually be seen of course. My LX3 is a good image maker but the controls of the GRD are much better. Does not stop me using the LX3 though. I'm considering a possible LX5 upgrade but want to see what else will be offered soon by Pany before going in.

    Of course the tests and samples will do most of the telling.

    I think this is a major update to an already excellent camera; I have one of these on order already: apart from the higher ISOs, it takes the GF-1 EVF, and goes to 90mm EFOV—what's not to like? AND the grip's been deepened.

    This is what I have been waiting for, frankly: 24–90 EFOV, fast lens, tiny but grippable, and truly pocketable. If the S90 had an EVF, I would be happy with it, too, BTW.
