PhotographyBlog reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 camera, which features a 10.2-megapixel CCD sensor, a powerful 4x image-stabilized optical zoom, 2.8-inch LCD display, intelligent ISO control, 13MB of built-in memory, and an SD card slot. Available here for $427.49 shipped. Here’s the verdict:

The persistent noise issue unfortunately therefore makes the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 a premium-priced product that doesn’t produce premium results. Although cheaper than the LX1 was at launch, you have to remind yourself that this camera costs just over £300, which is nearly as much as a Nikon D50 DSLR with a kit lens (which has fallen in price over the last year). Without all that noise, the DMC-LX2 would be an expensive but still unique and worthwhile purchase. As things stand, I would wait for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 and hope that Panasonic cures the achilles heel of the DMC-LX2
