What makes some low-res images on Flickr a reason for thinking "Leica feel"? I'm not trying to be snarky, but really I don't see any justification for making any judgments one way or another based on these shots. They could have been taken with almost any u43 or APS-C camera on the planet.

Whatever about they are wonderful photographs of a wonderful city, and show (to my eyes) that the camera and lens is a match to the latest m43 gear, although I can't help but think the Panasonic 12-35 or Olympus 12-40 would have performed a little better? It's also interesting that the photographer didn't go past ISO 1600.

Be even better see some full size examples - even a 3 mp camera can impress at that size. I do hope it lives up to the hype - especially that the glass performs at full aperture because otherwise the speed is all for nothing.

So it has a PhoLeica feel.:biggrin:
This camera looks great. I have been wanting both a GH4 and a 12-35 2.8 lens to cover the wider angle plus get better video than what my GH3 can do. However, my budget is blown already, and this may cover 90% on my video needs, plus it looks like a darn good camera for picture shooting and is portable as well. I can keep using the GH3 for my more specialized lenses and when I need to film with more zoom.

Anyone know of big caveats vs a Gh4??? I kind of feel Panasonic needs to find a way to make the GH4 stand out more now. Maybe eek out a bit more framerate in 1080p or 4k or something.

I'm sure the lx100 will be limited to the GH4 in regards to bit rates etc in comparison. Of course this fantasy camera seems to do it all so who knows?! It doesn't have a touch screen (I haven't had a body with it yet but being able to adjust focus point while viewing evf sounds awesome) and of course you're limited to 1 lens (no tele) and no mic inputs. That's just a few I can think of, I don't think this compete's with the gh4 when it comes to pro video but for everyday prosumer / enthusiast i have a feeling we'll have more than enough with the lx100 to capture our family / friends / unique moments in video AND still be able to do 8mp screen grabs for stills. Even though I have an E-M1 I prefer to use my RX100 as my main video shooter. I have a feeling I'll continue to do the same with this LX100. I'm hoping the face detection autofocus works super well in 4k. I noticed in videos the GH4s focus slows down considerably in 4k mode.

Good points. I think this may be a good way to get into 4K though. Maybe later get a GH4 successor or EM-1 successor. I guess I'll just have to wait for the reviews :)
