    Except it's NOT a Micro 4/3 camera, any more than the Olympus E-1 is. It's a fixed lens camera with a 4/3 sensor. The camera has exactly nothing to do with the Micro 4/3 spec - which defines a specific class of interoperability around a lens mount that happens to cover the 4/3 image circle - which, BTW, the LX100's lens doesn't. It would be no different to call the Panasonic FZ1000 a Nikon 1 system camera.

    I'm sure there is a section in the forum where it would be ok to have a thread like this. I think a lot of MFT users will buy this as a secondary camera, and while I agree the fact you can't change lenses technically invalidates it, I find it valuable to have a thread to see the quality that can be achieved / situations where it comes in handy.

    I'm fine with discussing it here - I just think it should be in a section devoted to synergistic cameras that are not part of the system, rather than within the same area as system cameras. I think it's just as reasonable to discuss other fixed lens cameras like the Sony RX100 and RX10, Panasonic FZ1000, Olympus XZ-2 and Stylus 1, etc., all of which might be viable alternatives for folks, within a section like that - I'd propose that it go into the "This or That" section of the forum

    Some images here: http://www.eoshd.com/2014/09/panasonic-lx100-first-impressions-review-4k-footage/

    "I hesitate to call the LX100 a ‘compact’ because about the only thing it shares with a traditional compact is size. The performance of the LX100 and image quality makes it worth thinking twice about taking snaps on an iPhone. The sensor is DSLR-class, the EVF mirrorless class and the lens frankly a class of its own. If sold separately for Micro Four Thirds it would be a premium offering with a premium price. I found the performance of the Leica zoom to be superb, in keeping with the recent Panasonic-Leica 15mm F1.7 for Micro Four Thirds it is pin sharp wide open and offers punchy colour. Bokeh is pronounced and creamy."

    It has a M43 sensor in the camera but doesn't use the full sensor.

    I still think it's M43.

    I know once I get my hands on it that I'll be posting pics here, definitely want to try a close up at 17mm f1.7

    It's a 4/3 sensor. What makes a camera with a 4/3 sensor into a Micro 4/3 camera is compliance with the Micro 4/3 interoperability spec - which is mostly about the lens mount and the way specific lens data is communicated between the lens and the camera. None of which is relevant to the LX100.

    Here's a small gallery from Leica with its D-Lux sibling.

    We don't have high-res images, nor EXIF data or anything like that to go on. But it looks good, frame seems evenly sharp, bokeh looks nice, very flare resistant and no aberrations I could tell from this distance. Good job from Panasonic. Oh, and if those are JPEGs, the skin tones are amazing.
