First contact with the Panasonic LX5

I got the Panasonic LX5 this afternoon. After charging the battery (it seemed to take forever) and storing my favourite settings in C1, I went out to get some practice.

The LX5 feels fine, like a conservatively improved LX3. Some things are different, and I'm not yet sure about the control wheel. But it works. I like especially the 90 mm equiv. reach of the lens.

I'll make later another posting discussing the first feelings about the LX5.

Glad you did it :)

@Andreas: Thanks!

I wrote some informal notes about LX3 vs. LX5 to a new posting.
