    24 images taken in a variety of situations - a reasonable test which the camera handles well imho.

    To be honest, DPR test shots look rather poor - too much noise reduction and little detail.

    I agree, too much NR or too much watercolor effect even at base iso. Waiting for raw samples..

    I have just checked the samples, and the imahe quality is rather poor, with very little detail and poor colours. Lets hope something better of this camera

    Have downloaded a full size image and yes they do lack detail.

    DPR has never shown any usable sample images. This holds for the sample pics of nearly every camera I own or have owned until now.

    Lenstip now has a set of (jpg) images taken under more controlled conditions and with minimum sharpening in-camera.

    It is ridiculous of Dpreview - with their extensive resources - to be so stingy about putting up RAW files for download.

    Amin,

    Do they not put up the RAW files up after the review? I know during "previews" that the manufactures won't allow sites like dpreview to release full size images because the software/hardware is in beta and not yet released.

    On edit,

    I did look at their full size images. While not bad, I don't think they are as good as the LX5. They look overprocessed to me.
