    $899 USD (based on specs, I thought for sure it'd be $1299).

    C'mon camera store -- you guys have got to do one!

    Ap, SS and EV dials. Leaf shutter. 11 fps.

    Pretty close to the size of the old Canon Canonette

    Canonette: 120 × 75 × 60 mm
    LX100: 115 x 66 x 55 mm

    That is one heck of a sexy compact camera....full complement of manual control dials, multi aspect GH4 sensor with DFD focusing and a pretty impressive lens. Still to wait for real world reviews but I think I'll be picking this up.

    Wow that looks nice...

    Do me a favor Panasonic, take that lens and package it in MFT mount..... Small pancake size, leaf shutter, 24-70, and f/1.7 to f/2.8. Yum.

    That's actually very good looking at just the specs of the optics. Its cheaper than the Panasonic 12-35 f/2.8 MFT lens alone.

    Hey, this is mu43's first real non-ILC compact. Aside from the nifty specs, I actually like the styling as well. They could sell lots of these.

    I still don't get it about the lens. It is said to have 24-75mm equivalent. Yet the number engraved in the lens is 10.9-34mm. Wouldn't it become 21.8-68mm equivalent?

    @fluberman - I guess it's because the multi-aspect thing - they fitted all the formats within 4/3, hence the 4/3 "full" image circle is also smaller...

    Looks really really really tempting...if the full specs are as I suppose, I might get one!

    I don't know if perfection exist in a camera but it sure is as close as it gets. Time to sell gear to buy this one! :)

    this is a exciting camera, i didn't expect a shutter dial and an aperture ring!!

    how the EVF compares with the one in the GX7?

    autoISO in M? flash sync? silent mode?

    hope not 'cause I'd be 900 bucks poorer quite fast :)

    This is by far the most interesting thing out of photokina (so far)

    Silent mode and fast flash sync, yes.

    Have not yet read autoISO in M.

    Flash sync should be really fast since it has a leaf shutter. It could be 1/1600s.

    Maybe in a couple of years? Today, the lens in the LX100, even though it is a great feat, does not actually covers the entire 4/3 sensor.

    I'm not one to pre-order anything... I usually wait for the sales, but I might not be able to resist this one.
