The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 is the likely successor to the popular Lumix LX3 and while it has not yet been officially released in the Philippines, a few units have been spotted in the grey market.
With a 1/1.63″ sensor size, the Lumix LX5 was announced back in July and brings some cosmetic and feature improvements over the LX3.
