Our photokina week coverage continues with a look at Panasonic’s Lumix LX100.
Today’s Post by Mark Toal
I’ve always thought of mirrorless cameras as having interchangeable lenses so the new Lumix LX100 stretches that definition a bit. With it’s fixed mount 24-75mm f/1.7-2.8 lens it looks more like a point-and-shoot camera but I think its Micro Four-thirds (18 mm × 13.5 mm) sensor qualifies it to be for the Mirrorless category.
Since I work for Panasonic I’m not going to review the camera’s quality. The LX100 is not a lot bigger than the company’s Lumix LX7 and has a much larger sensor and shoots 4K video. All that along with the fast 24-75mm Leica lens makes it an interesting camera.
I can tell you that this small camera is a pleasure to carry around as I did when I visited Joe in Denver a couple of weeks ago. You can see the beautiful out of focus backgrounds you can get because of the larger sensor.
