And so it stays just on the edge of vision

The photographs were taken at Luukki on August 21st.

Today I walked for four hours at Liesjärvi National Park, exploring the area between Korteniemi and Kyynärä. The smaller paths were in some places obstacle courses due to fallen trees. It was quiet, and the autumn landscape was rather fine. I took over 1000 photographs, and drained two LX100 batteries.

Hello Juha! Off topic, but I would like to know what you think about this new Panasonic LX10/15? Are you used to the "quality" of the bigger sensor in LX100 or will you see other benefits with the LX10/15?

Before the two LX100s I had the LX3 and LX5, both small-sensor cameras, and the LX10/15 would be in the middle in terms of sensor size. I wouldn't say that the sensor size would be a deal-breaker for me, but certainly the LX100 photographs have a look different from the LX3 and LX5, both of which I did like, but maybe not quite as much as the LX100.

For me the best thing about the LX100 are the convenient controls, for example the aspect ratio switch. I have also grown to like the EVF.

One aspect of the LX10/15 which could be a deal-break for me is that it doesn't seem to offer 24 mm equiv. view at the wide end when using the 1:1 aspect ratio, but instead the photograph is cropped, which is different than with the LX100. I shoot a lot of photographs at 1:1 and 24 mm.
