Weekend with the LX5; Adorama Black Friday Sale on LX7

Thanksgiving is almost here and with it, that beloved tradition of bargain hunting on Black Friday.  :) One of the more interesting photo-related Black Friday sales I've seen is Adorama's sale of the Panasonic Lumix LX7 for $299 ($100 off).  You may be wondering whether the LX7 would be a good pocket camera.  By serendipity, I took some shots recently with the LX5 (reviewed here), which is practically identical to the LX7, except that the LX7 has a lens that is a full stop faster: the LX5's maximum aperture is f/2.0-3.3 while the LX7's aperture is f/1.4-2.3.  So here are some shots from the LX5.










In the afternoon, I took the kids and their bikes to visit my parents' place.  They live in a community that has beautiful parks and lakes.
