...and here is the proof: The official I don't want the LX100 thread Prior to that was, oh, November 1977, I think... Let me explain. After my ill considered but thankfully short flirtation with the Sony RX100 I went back to the drawing board. I still had a yen (geddit?) for a high quality go-everywhere zoom compact to compliment my Fujis. I still have an X20 but it is admittedly getting a little long in the tooth and occasionally cranky on startup. Searching around I chanced upon the Panasonic LX100... Now, I know it is not exactly pocketable, but more of that later... What it is, is capable, and not insanely small. it handles well, has an (electronic) viewfinder and, critically, NO TOUCH OR TILTY SCREEN. It does seem that Panasonic has channelled the mojo of my much-loved LC-1 (Leica Digilux 2; I had both and preferred the finish and handling of the Panasonic.) I'm loving the fast lens, the "analogue" control dials and rings and the handling. In-camera raw processing - yay. Decent mono output... I'm not so keen on the power zoom or the impenetrable remote app. A minor muscle memory irritation is that the zoom control is in the same place, more or less, as the on-off switch on my Fujis - but I'll get used to that. But the results... I will post an image or two in due course. I'm liking what I'm seeing. There's some Leica DNA in there too... it's buried a long way down, but I can sense it... Amusingly, the camera fits perfectly in an old Leica leather belt case designed originally to hold an M6 with the 50mm f2.8 Elmarit-M mounted. It's a funny old world, innit?
