Panasonic Lumix DC-LX100 II

 

The Panasonic Lumix DC-LX100 II has a better image sensor than the original, but we would have liked to see more upgrades for the price.

Bright zoom lens. Micro Four Thirds image sensor. 11fps burst shooting. Strong control layout. Touch LCD. 4K video and photo options. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Pricey. Not quite pocket-friendly. Doesn't have in-body flash. Fixed LCD. No mic input.

Bottom Line: The Panasonic Lumix DC-LX100 II has a better image sensor than the original, but we would have liked to see more upgrades for the price.

Panasonic DC-LX100 II Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DC-LX100 Mark II is a rather belated update to one of our favorite enthusiast compact cameras. Is it enough of a refresh to keep up with the times?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Mark II

 

High-end all-in-one cameras have to be sharp to survive in today's digital camera landscape. They have to take pictures better than a cell phone but have the same ease of use and connectivity as one. The Panasonic Lumix LX100 II is everything and more...

​Panasonic Lumix LX100 II​ Review

 

The seventh generation of the LX-series is very much evolutionary, rather than revolutionary, hence the addition of the Mark II moniker, rather than a completely new model name. If you're already a Panasonic Lumix LX100 user, then you'll find little...

Panasonic LX100 II Review

 

Almost four years ago, Panasonic made its debut in the large-sensor, compact camera market with the LX100, a coat pocket-friendly beauty that paired very good image quality with great performance. We came away from our LX100 review thoroughly impressed...

Panasonic LX100 II Review | Trusted Reviews

 

With its new 17-megapixel sensor and touchscreen controls, can Panasonic's flagship compact camera beat its fierce competition?

Great image quality ; Fast and versatile lens ; Touch-sensitive screen ; High resolution viewfinder ; Great handling

No tilting screen ; Fairly modest upgrade from predecessor

While it's an improvement on the much-revered LX100, the Mark II version falls just short of full marks by not including a tilting screen.

Panasonic LX100 II review: An adept compact shooter with a lighter touch

 

If you're the kind of person who likes their phone to be a phone and their camera to be a camera, I can see the case for the new LX100 being that camera.

Compact form-factor ; Powerful sensor

Locked to the single lens
