Only my second post so be gentle!!! Cameraworld are sellng the LX100 in the sale the original price only a few months ago was £699. You can get free delivery or pay £5 when they are back open for next day delivery.

I purchased a returned open box one from wex only a few weeks ago and at this price it's a steal although some people may think it's not. Cheapest on camera price buster is £599 and I've ordered from Cameraworld in the past without any problems.

...don't see why this is cold. Great find Op and a great price. Hot from me!

Great price, maybe some of the cold is from posters who are confusing this with other models

good find! possibly the best micro 4/3 lens camera/lens combo

is it better than Sony A6000?

is it better than Sony A6000?



It's different. The LX100 is a fixed lens camera with a really nice lens that has a wide aperture throughout the range, shoots 4K and Is pretty compact with the lens retracted. If you want a camera with a single versatile lens, it's a great choice. However the A6000's larger APS-C sized sensor (the LX100 uses a smaller 4/3rds sensor which, if I remember correctly, isn't fully used in any one shooting mode but instead uses different portions of the sensor for different aspect ratios) is one of the best in its class and will most likely deliver better images. Being an ILC means huge versatility in terms of lens options and the shooting avenues different lenses open up, however lenses obviously need to be budgeted for and while the kit lens covers a similar range as the LX100's lens it won't offer the same depth of field or low light qualities. The body itself is also smaller overall and the LX100 is about 50% heavier- I'm not sure of pancake lenses exist for the A series cameras but if so you could get a more compact, verging on pocketable setup out of an A6000 body.

So yeah, which is better depends on what you're looking for

Good, helpful post there. Nice to see at least some users around here still remember how to converse appropriately.

Have you actually used an LX100?
I've got both cameras - RX100 iii and LX100. Both very good cameras, but LX100 is a much better - although admittedly bigger - camera. Try both cameras in a low light, indoor setting and the Panasonic blows the Sony out of the water.
