Prestige Panasonic LX5, 24x zoom FZ100, tough FT10 and two other models revealed

Panasonic has announced five new additions to the Lumix compact range, including a prestige manual compact in the form of the LX5. Also announced was the FZ100, which has an impressive 24x optical zoom and 25mm wide angle lens, and the water, shock and freeze proof FT10.
The FZ45 is very similar to the FZ100 specs-wise, with the main difference being a slightly narrower lens at 27mm, and the FX700 which has a 24mm wide angle lens and a 5x optical zoom. All five were announced at a recent event in Sweden, where WDC were able to get a few sample images.
