We already looked at this before, but the kindly folks over at Imaging Resource have another review for the Lumix LX2.
In essence, they praised the LX2â€™s triple wide feature set of 16:9 lens, 16:9 image sensor and 16:9 LCD, its good looks and speedy performance. However, on image quality they wished Panasonic could tone down the color saturation a bit while improving the camera’s dynamic range. Noise is also still a problem at all ISO settings, especially at ISO 800 and 1,600. In short, not very good pictures.
For its $500 price, youâ€™d expect a camera to deliver very good pictures. Look closely at the sample pictures taken with the LX2 by Imaging Resource and you will notice some artifacting and indeed a lot of noise.
When before we said the LX2 was blah, now we say itâ€™s double-blah.
