The Panasonic Lumix DMC LX100 is a premium compact camera whose 13MP Micro Four Thirds sensor makes it the LX camera with the largest sensor to date. Thanks to its fixed Leica-branded zoom with an equivalent reach of 24-75mm, maximum aperture of f/1.7 and minimum focusing distance of 3cm, it is a great all-rounder for genres such as landscape, street, portraits and semi-macro. Because it offers a multi-aspect ratio sensor, you can take 4:3, 2:3 and 16:9 images with minimal loss in image size. Other features include a built-in EVF, built-in WiFi capabilities and 4K at 30p / Full HD at 60p.
Speaking on a more personal note, the LX100 is also one of my favourite cameras because it manages to pack so many good features – most notably the excellent fast-aperture zoom – into a small and portable body. I do hope Panasonic produces a successor sometime soon!
