When debuting in the prestige compact genre Nikon managed to do plenty right with the P7000, but elements such as the slow Raw processing hindered it's progress. The new P7100 remedies this as well as adding a front control dial and a few other extras to ensure this manual control, 10MP camera is all an advancing photographer needs. .
With a short zoom lens, sporting Leica optics no less, the Panasonic LX5 offers the kind of optical quality that will give image quality that extra degree of sharpness over lesser compacts. The DSLR-style manual controls and tough, compact body makes it a perfect companion for those wanting less bulk without sacrificing functionality or end results.
