Panasonic Lumix LX5 is Official

Panasonic today officially announced their new Lumix DMC-LX5 digital camera, successor to the hugely popular LX3 model which featured a Leica lens.

The new LX5 features a 10 megapixel CCD sensor, HD movie recording and, of course, a Leica lens, the fully redesigned F2.0 Leica DC Vario-Summicron with an equivalent 3.8x 24-90mm zoom. Maximum sensor sensitivity is a staggering ISO 12800.

According to Panasonic, “the newly developed super bright F2.0 ultra wide angle 24mm LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens minimizes distortion for stunning, true-to-life images with outstanding resolution and detail. The 24mm of wide angle offers extraordinarily large viewing space and now the optical zoom is extended to 3.8x (90mm) making the LX5 even more versatile.”
