    I guess my point of reference would be against a 10D, with a batt grip and a 100-400L (my usual weapon of choice), so the LC-1 would seem "light".


    But seriously, it is pretty lightweight in your hands, go try it out for yourself.

    If I can selling my 10D, I would likely buy the LC-1. 28-90 is the good range for lens.

    If everything goes according to my evil plans, I shall be a LC1 owner by next week. Watch this space for details... I dream about that cam every night.

    I always wonder why CP is so sucessful in its sales. Their price is $1800, most SLS shops selling at about $1650, $1600 with hard bargaining.

    U thinking of getting one? Maybe we can do a combined purchase for a better price.

    Anyone got any lowest quote? Sadly, the quote i got is from a "blacklisted" shop at SLS - not AP though.
    Quotation from MS Color - $1640.

    Hmm.. tempting price.

    Still wondering whether to get the LC1 or the FZ10.
    But the FZ10's CA sorta turns me off.
    Any FZ10 users out there?

    suggest that you bring a memory card and test a few shots, go home and view it before buying. i admit the design and my longing for a rangefidner digicam got me very interested when i first knew about this camera....28-90 leica lens and a compact body is very very tempting.

    so i when to my usual camera shop and loaded my SD card and shot about 40 shots of different ISO and apreture both indoors and outdoors.

    when home to see the pictures on screen( dont trust the LCD to check, too small to see anything like noise or sharpness.) decided straight away to forget about the cam.

    Why? only shots taken at ISO100 was 'clean'. by clean i meant little or almost non existence noise. from ISO200 above, noise was clearly visible.

    again, this is subjective. the pic's noise was much worst at ISO200 than my S2 at ISO800. so the cam loses the non mirror shade advantage from a SLR. however, the noise was better than the ricoh that i have a ISO200. i have printed pic from the ricoh before and think that the pic is acceptable though no way near s2's output. so i suppose the LC1 will give decent photo up to ISO 400 too. Once you use the APS sensor sized DSLR, you will find the noise is a little too much for that price since you can get a canon 300D or D70( the smaller sensor size sure does increase much noise) for about the same price.

    so verdict, test it, like it, buy it. expectations are different. for a 1200, i would have gotten it as a carry around daily cam. for 1800, think not worth the price.

    it's not me, but my dad just got two weeks back from CP.

    the looks of the camera is impressive, but wonder how the shots will look like.

    it's still canon for me!

    FZ10 turns me off too. Dun think you would regret after getting LC1. The only thing that I dun like about the LC1 is the EVF, would be perfect if it is optical.

    Since the insides of this camera is essentially identical to the Leica Digilux 2, maybe the field test report from The Luminous Landscape might be relevant.

    At almost half the price of its Leica twin, I am quite tempted too.

    Care to post some of your pictures taken with different ISO settings for us to have a "real" feeling of the noise level?

    Thanks!

    Tried this camera for about 10mins in a shop and was quite disappointed with the AF speed and shot-to-shot interval. For that price, it was slower than I had expected it to be. Probably will have to wait a little longer for the technology to improve (faster processor, more efficient software algorithm, larger/faster buffer memory) for these range of cameras.

    Anyway... bravo still to Panasonic for introducing this manual control digicam. Hope that more such digicams will be launched soon.

    More choices > More competition = better cameras (hopefully)
