Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 Photos Image

We spent a couple of days using the brand new Panasonic Lumix LX5 camera at the European press launch in Stockholm, Sweden earlier this month. There are 45 full-sized JPEG photos in our Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 gallery.

Please note that these are pre-production samples which may not be indicative of the final quality images when the Panasonic LX5 hits the shops.

Thanks for the samples.

I’m pretty disappointed by the PQ though :(

yap, I was pretty disappointed with the image quality too. The photos just looked too noisy. It seems like a commom problem with Panasonic cameras.

I was expecting something good from this LX3 replacement. Hope that the final production will be better.

Haven’t been pixel peeping, no need since they just look generally underexposed.

I’m pretty disappointed with the samples too. Samsung EX1 is far better at high ISO’s and seems to have more fine detail on the images.

If this is a test body, ok, can hope something better for the production model.

After seeing these pics, I’m more than happy to own a Samsung EX1. It has a faster lens, lower noise and better colors.

The only pro for the LX5 is the slightly longer tele, but it doesn’t compensate for the slower lens, IMHO.

The LX5 have sharper lens than Samsung EX1 and the picture details are relativly good (in hiISO too). The main drawback is the blothy yellow noise on iso 800-3200 photos.
I would like to see RAW images too!

I am not impressed by the pictures. No difference at all from my LX3. Looks like no need for upgrade.

Photography is a very different and sort of unique form of visual arts that is process of creating still pictures by using and understanding with the exact aspect of recording radiation on a sensitive medium. i am glad to see how these detailed posts of cameras Panasonic producing a large and quality amount of camera even i got one which helped me a a lot to understand more about creativity and professionalism.

I am not impressed, like many who post their comments here, by the PQ of the sample pics.  They are typically Panasonic, overly sharp, somewhat bluish-grey and mostly a tit underexposed, resemble, but have not improved over, those taken by LX3, FX550 and other “good” p&s of the brand.  The pictures by its competitions from other brands, appeal to me much better in general.

Guys n’ Gals,

You have to admit that those sample images would be pretty crappy photos no matter what camera was used.  I’ve gotten sensational photos out of my Leica Digilux 1 (only 4mp btw!...and basically the same glass).  Why? Namely, I was at the right place at the right time.  When a golden moment is in front of you, you’re going to get that shot whether you’re using a P&S like mine or a $10,000 SLR.
