Panasonic has officially announced the DC-LX100 II (LX100M2) premium compact camera today. Panasonic’s premium 1.33inch sensor camera, with a new higher resolution touch-screen, and higher-resolution sensor.
The LX100 II features an updated grip, a new 17mp multi-aspect Four Thirds sensor (total 20mp, same sensor as found in the GX9), without an optical low-pass filter, a 3inch touch-screen, USB charging, and additional customisable function buttons.
The LX100 II has the same (excellent) 24-75mm equivalent F1.7-2.8 lens, which features five aspherical and two ED elements, a minimum focus distance of 3cm (1.2″) and a leaf shutter. The design of the camera is almost identical, save for a ‘grippier’ grip and additional custom buttons. The LX100 II continues to offer the analog controls that made its predecessor so appealing.
