Whats people's experience with the LX-1 like? Is the noise a big issue even at low ISO? How's the power consumption? And ergonomically speaking is it an easy camera to use? And how different is this compare to the Leica D-Lux 2?
I am looking at this against Ricoh's GR Digital and GX8, as well as Canon's S80. I really don't want to go the mainstream Canon route. And while Ricoh GR D is interesting and would probably be my first pick I am buying this as a gift and the lack of Zoom may not be convenient, plus it is not widely available and I am working on a tight schedule, while GX8 is not nearly as attractive as the GR D. The price forLX-1 seems quite fair nowadays and I am sure the Leica lens is probably worth my while.
Thanks, any opinion is appreciated....
