Panasonic LX-5 with Screen Protector, Filter Adapter Tube & UV Filter (Price Drop!!!) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Panasonic Lumix LX-5 with GGS Screen Protector (PRICE DROP!!!)

Asking Price
215 USD

Item Location
Sterling, VA (United States)

Item Description
This camera was bought from Amazon last December. I have used it sparingly as a second fiddle to my Fuji HS20. And as I have recently acquired a Pentax K30 I don't see myself using the LX5 much. I am sure it will be of more use to somebody else.

The camera is in perfect shape, and has been protected with the GGS screen gaurd from day one. It comes with the original box and all original accessories. It is still under the manufacturer's one year warranty. I can post pictures upon request, both of the camera and the ones taken with the camera. This is my first post on the Marketplace, questions are welcome for any clarifications.

Significant Price Drop!!!

Also including a Lens Tube Adapter (for mounting filters) and a generic UV Filter (that has always been on the camera for protection) at no extra cost. I am trying to get rid of this great camera to fund a new superzoom.

I had the LX3 and loved its results. The initial release firmware softened the images too much and it felt worse than LX3 but the later firmware fixed it. The expanded zoom range on LX5 is nice to have. I just bought the S100 (first in the S series with wider angle than 28mm) but part of me wants the LX5, too bad I can't have everything in one pocketable camera

I agree with you Waqas. I guess the best camera is the one you have with you. I passed on the S95 because of the 28 mm, even though it is more pocketable than the LX5. The new RX100 looks great but then no hotshoe and no way to add a viewfinder. So, yes, I guess we can't have everything in one pocketable camera, at least for now

ps. thanks for the bump

I think with the LX7 (or XZ-2 if 28mm worked) you pretty much can have everything in one pocketable camera.

And wouldn't this LX5 come close? For me, it was second only to the XZ-1 I chose, and a few weeks ago it was still the latest model. Now you have it for less than half the price of the new model!

The LX-5 is a pretty little gem. A few months back, a friend and I were exchanging pictures via email as he had recently gotten a D3100. I sent him mine, shot with this LX5. He was astounded that a compact camera could produce such good images, but I digress. I am sure XZ-2 will be pretty nice too. I have heard only good things about the Olympus JPEG engine. I am looking at the LX-7 myself, especially to pair it up with the new LVF2 viewfinder. It may not be pocketable but sounds like a nice combo. Maybe the proceeds from here can fund that
