The LX5 is a powerful, high-performance compact camera for true enthusiasts. The oversized CCD sensor and f/2.0 lens offer excellent image quality in all settings. Autofocus is among the fastest out there in a compact camera and is almost comparable to a dSLR in good light. It strikes a nice balance between the bulk of larger advanced compacts like the Canon G12 or Nikon P7000 and the portability of the Canon S95 -- easier to carry around than the former, easier to handle than the latter. It has arguably the best video mode of any advanced compact as well. There really are no bad options in the advanced compact space at the moment, but this is certainly one of the most enticing of the bunch at the moment.
