    Let me start by saying I absolutely love this camera but that isn’t to say that there are not some compromises. There are several places on the internet that you can get an in-depth review, download sample files, etc… so I am not going to do that. If you want the executive summary this camera packs a ton of capability into a modestly sized package. Below I am going to touch on a few highlights and a few places that I think could stand to be improved. The four star review is entirely because of the things that I think could be improved.
    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.
