For those still chasing the compact digital magic bullet, this might be another silver class entrant:

I wonder how it is compared to my Canon G11.
I find the G11 still too big - seems the LX5 is going to be much smaller
with a faster lens and still RAW.
I wonder how it is IQ-wise.
I find size more and more important for my "daily camera".
Everything which doesn't fit in my shirts chest pocket is still too big.

About same size, weight, number of pixel, price and zoom factor compared to S90 !

Have a Nice Day

I hike and travel but I am limited to non-DSLR's because of prior neck surgery. Too much weight to carry.
Nevertheless, I strive for the photos that can show precise resolution- like every "hair"
on an eagle's neck feathers, etc., details in flowers, including butterflies and bees, etc. I own a Canon G9 that has served me "acceptably" well, but I'm not satisfied with the lighting, resolution, or the telephoto accesory. For wildlife at a distance, I would certainly like better resolution. Can't spend $'s in the M9 category either.
Recently added Raynox 462mm (35mm equivalent) and 23 mm lenses to the G9. The 462 obviously requires a tripod and is compromised in motion situations like wildlife photography. The wide angle limits light entry, on the one hand, but blocks the flash, on the other.
How much of an improvement in resolution and use in wildlife photography would the Lumix DMC-LX5 be for a person like myself?
Thank you for your answers.

Difficult to say, we would need a real world comparison to provide an accurate answer.

Both cameras should have similar theoretical resolutions, what will differ is the gap between real and theoretical resolution resulting from:
- the lens
- the AA filter and overall design of the photosites
- the processing of the raw data needed to get rid of noise,...

I would think that the LX5 will deliver significantly cleaner images that should therefore be enlarged more, but again real world test will be required to back up such a claim.

Bernard
