    I recommend a good read on this if you are getting a DSLR: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/threa...-camera-to-buy

    If low light shooting you meant is, taking a photo of a nice night scenery with you/family standing infront AND can see both foreground and background clearly. You may want to read up on some techniques like HDR...

    You will definitely need a lens. But all cameras come with a kit lens. Use this until you know more and you can define your needs clearly.
    All cameras can do low light photography, it is rather question of you understanding what to do in order to capture the scene / subject. There is a subforum about Night Photography.

    In fact, I like it so much that if I could afford it I'll make sure every photographer I know personally owns at least one.

    between the 2, i recommend the LX5, which has a faster lens at the tele end which is gd for low-light shooting. image quality wise, both cameras are equal. choose the S95 if you want a smaller. more pocketable camera. choose the LX5 if you like a wider angle lens (24mm vs 28mm).
