Amazon is running some HUGE DEALS right now on 2 of our favorite cameras.
First up, the Panasonic Lumix LX7 is on sale for only $298 USD. The LX7 is equipped with a great 10mp sensor, but where the LX7 really shines is the bright, fast Leica branded lens attached to the front. This is one of, if not THE best lens ever attached to a compact camera. It’s f/1.4 at it’s widest and it’s macro capabilities are so good that some of my colleagues are actually purchasing LX7s instead of getting an actual macro lens, which costs several hundred dollars more. (for more on the LX7, check out the video above by Mitch625)
This camera is an absolute steal at $298!
If an interchangeable lens system is more your speed, then the Panasonic Lumix G5 (with Kit Lens) is on sale for only $498 USD. This camera delivers still images and videos that are so good that it easily hangs in with many of the top tier cameras around. It has features and capabilites that’ll please any pro, but it’s easy enough for a beginner to use and right now, it’s roughly half the price of an entry level DSLR. I personally own one of these little beauties, and so do two of my colleagues (Giulio Sciorio and Steven Lynch) over on DiscoverMirrorless.com, and we love the G5.
At $498 – it’s another steal!
As always, if you’re interested in either one of these, jump on it fast – because you never know how long these deals will last.
