Panasonic Japan has officially killed off the Lumix LX100 II. Released in 2018, this follow-up to the popular LX100 stood out amongst the compact camera competition by having the same large 20.3-megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor as the Panasonic Lumix GX9. Capable of shooting 4K UHD video, with a built-in 24-75mm equivalent f/1.7-2.8 lens, the LX100 II also proved to be quite popular. But now its time has come to an end.
And it looks like this might be an end to the LX100 line completely as Panasonic turns away from compact cameras. In April of this year, Panasonic was reported to be ditching “low-end models” to set their sights on professional photographers and filmmakers with higher-end kit in the interchangeable lens mirrorless market.
