After the rain it didn't take long to dry up. Now we are back to hot and dry weather. But as it has been a couple of degrees cooler, around 27-28 °C, it feels quite nice to have a walk outside.
Update: It seems that information about the rumoured Panasonic LX5 is leaking. If these specs are correct, the LX5 will be about the same size and weight as the LX3 (a little bit more but not noticiably), and no big surprises.
The lens would be 24-90 mm (35 mm equiv.) f/2.0...3.3, and the sensor would have about the same number of pixels as the LX3 (several native aspect rations) but better sensitivity. Shutter speed would have minimun at 1/4000 s. Exposure bracketing and compensation would be at +- 3 EV.
Evolution, not radical change. If the lens is of similar quality than on the LX3 then 90 mm at the tele end would be nice to have. And if the sensor is 1.5 stops better than on the LX3, that would be the biggest improvement.
Would this be enough to change from the LX3? Maybe - but probably not. (If the LX3 doesn't break, that is.)
