It seems to me that the LX100, more than most cameras, is a polarizing little beast. Some folks swear by it's image quality and seem to find it to be an irreplaceable piece of kit. Others seem to be convinced that it is soft, and that image quality is anywhere from average to kind of poor. I can't sort those out very well. Some folks have surely been romanced by the ridiculous spec sheet of the LX100, and maybe refuse to evaluate it with a critical eye. And some surely are comparing it to prime lenses and reporting the results as a failure when it doesn't quite measure up. Is reality simply in the middle somewhere? Or do we maybe have wider than normal performance between different copies? I suppose I am going to rent one to find out for myself. I really want the all-in-one convenience, and I have convinced myself that I am willing to make some sacrifices to achieve it. But I'd still be curious to hear more user comments, especially from the middle 60% of you that neither love nor hate the camera. Thanks.
