The LX5 is an incredible camera especially for the price. My experience with low light images has been excellent. I packs and trevels well and is easy to use. I looks classy and even a bit retro. Image quality is about 87-89% of my much bigger and more expensive DSLR the Nikon D-300. You really can't lose with this camera especially for the price.

With Firmware v2.0 this well-proven LX5 design beats the X10, hands down!
