I’ll start with the things that could stand to be improved, in no particular order.
The included flash is more than a bit disappointing, I appreciate that Panasonic feels they need to include something but it is really pretty useless. Instead I prefer to use the Olympus FL-LM3 (which works just fine on the LX100II) because it both rotates and tilts, I would prefer to pay extra for something like this than use the included flash.
1:1 aspect ratio does not use the entire height of the sensor, instead it crops the 4:3 aspect ratio. If you shoot in this mode you may find the reduced angle of view restricting.
Intelligent Auto ISO is not that intelligent. I have noticed this on other Panasonic cameras that I have owned. They way this is supposed to work is by analyzing the movement in the scene and increasing the ISO to increase the shutter speed so as to freeze the subject. I have a toddler (one of the more challenging subject a non-wildlife photographer can encounter) and I can attest that iAuto ISO does not work as advertised. On the LX100II this is not as big a deal as you can adjust the minimum shutter speed.
For a camera at this price point the EVF could stand to be a little bigger and shaper.
The highlights of this camera.
The lens/sensor combination delivers great image quality in a very compact package.
The controls are well laid out and easy to use with the camera in hand.
Having a hot shoe means that there are variety of flashes available rather than just a small built in flash.
The shooting styles, particularly L.Monochrome and L.Monochrome D, are actually really useful.
USB charging is useful when traveling. The perceived downside is that you need to buy a separate charger if you want to charge a second battery while using the camera. In reality chargers are available at very reasonable prices from third party sellers. On the other hand if a camera does not have this capability it cannot be added later. Having said that it would be nice if USB charging worked with higher output chargers.
A grip that provides a secure grasp of the camera was an important aspect as I often need to take pictures “right now” while still riding. This is the largest of the three but also has a larger sensor (though lower pixel output). Where this camera (and the Canon) have a good sized grip, the Sony has none, making it more likely to be dropped. The Canon has a longer zoom range, but few customizable buttons. The Panasonic won out because it offers: 5 physical programmable buttons and 5 “soft” programmable buttons (on the touchscreen), 3 Custom mode presets, a faster lens, physical aspect ratio switch (a feature I use a lot), dedicated viewfinder (not a two step to pop up and two step to retract viewfinder like the other two).
The only disappointing feature of this camera, and the primary reason I rated it 4 stars in everything except Auto Focus, is the HDR implementation. Unless the camera is held absolutely and perfectly still, the HDR images do not come out well. It appears it does not use any kind of sensor shake prevention to keep the three pictures lined up so the slightest movement results in muddied output in HDR mode. In comparison, my old iPhone 6 excels far and above this camera in this regard on HDR photos. Rather disappointing on a $1,000 enthusiast compact camera.
I don’t do a lot of flash photography so the fact that the flash (included) is an external flash which requires removing a plastic cover from the camera and inserting the flash when needed is not a big deal to me. If you like to have a flash available at a moments notice at all times then you may not be happy with this setup. The flash photos I have taken have turned out evenly lighted and well exposed.
The camera's ergonomics are amazingly good. You have a choice of either using the large bright LCD screen on the back to compose pictures, or the electronic viewfinder. Amazingly, the camera senses if you are using the viewfinder and automatically switches from the live view LCD screen to the viewfinder. Maybe this isn't a new feature for modern cameras, but this is the first camera that I've owned that had such a feature.
My only criticism of the camera is the menu system. Initially I found the menus confusing, possibly because I have used Nikon and Canon cameras in the past, which have a different menu system. I put in some time familiarizing myself with the Panasonic, and now I am comfortable with its system of menus. One saving feature for the menus is the My Settings menu selection, which allows the user to group his or her favorite and most-used settings all in one place. This helps to mitigate the feature-rich nature of the camera, which is really why the menus are complicated. Most users will want to make liberal use of this feature.
The camera easily transfers images and film clips from camera to your smartphone, thereby enabling further transfer of the images to the cloud, social media, or whatnot. Get the free Panasonic app.
Overall I am extremely pleased with this camera -- it is a small wonder that really does about do it all. RJB.

It’s the perfect camera if you are good with the 24-70 focal range, very sharp and with a nice bokeh (for a MFT camera of course). The raw file is very flexible in Capture One with a very good highlights and shadows recover. Perfect size, well build, with aperture ring and all you need to feel the photography feeling of a real camera (in a fraction of the size and weight).
