    Anyone figured what accessory this is?

    The Panasonic Wide Converter - equivalent to 0.75mm, which means from the native 24mm, you get an equivalent of 18mm. Attached via a tube adapter. 52mm threads.

    Great for tight spaces and when you simply can't move back!

    So far I've not seen and CA affecting the image not have I seen a perceptible IQ drop.
    Check out the license plate right in the corner of the 2nd shot!

    Obviously you love this camera, and to put in so many shots is already commendable. You are right to say that this is a pns camera, but credible to be used as a walk about one. Thank you. What is the price range?

    LX5 not using focal plane-type shutters, if i m not wrong, it uses combination of the mechanical in-lens shutter and the electronic switching of the sensor.

    As a point and shoot camera, LX5 is quite good actually.

    What is the price range now? Is it still SGD699? I'm wondering if the price is really SGD699 and if you buy other accessories like wide conversion lens, adapter tube, filters and electronic viewfinder, would it be more expensive than entry-mid level DSLR? And would it be bulky and not pocketable anymore?

    Is LX5 still made in Japan? As told by a retailer that the new Panasonic m4/3 series like G2, G10 and GH1 are made in China.

    I remember you leading the campaign against the LX5 in favor of the EX1, Kent. Have you been able to compare the two, thus the change of heart? Would appreciate some point comparisons and maybe photos as well.

    I won't be advice on the price of LX5 plus accessories as they are by dealers, however, with the accessories added, probably around the cost of an entry level DSLR body plus minus kit lens, probably. Having say that, kit lens doesn't have wide angle anyways. Viewfinder is the same of that of GF1 for the electronic version, and the same as LX3 for optical.

    If pocketable is the purpose, then the additional accessories would have to be in another bag I guess? Any camera with add ons means it's not very much pocketable anyways?

    LX5 is made in Japan, so is GF1 and GH1. Only G2 and G10 is made in China.

    The last shot or the previous ones?

    If it's the very last, it's the National Library Board next to Bugis.

    Prior to which is the Marina Bay area in front of Marina Square.

    As to the super-high sync speeds, Dennis gave a possible answer.

    CHEERS!
