In resume, Panasonic LX5 and  Leica D-lux 5 are the same cameras, with the only one difference:
THE MONEY...    ONE Leica = THREE Panasonic.

I have got one Panasonic. And it is very very good. I have purchase from B&H to South Africa. Do not read to much. Get a Panasonic if you have mucho dinero get the Laica. Best

The Leica is thinner by 0.7 inch only because Panasonic has a built in hand grip that Leica sells as an accessory for a handsome price
