If you're familiar with Panasonic's cameras, you'll know where the LX5 gets its looks from.
Panasonic is really being consistent, and there's nothing wrong with that as the LX5 continues a fine tradition of looking real good. The new white version adds to the slightly retrospective flavor of the LX5, but do you know what would have been sweeter? A silver body with brown accents. Pure fantasy, we know...unless someone from Panasonic is listening (you know, you guys did do a Sakura pink GF1 long after it was released...).
