Recently, rumors about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX6 appears on the Internet, and some information were exposed. However, will the LX6 come as the replacement of LX5? We should wait to see. Now let's see what the rumors say about the Panasonic LX6.

If the longevity of the Panasonic LX5's well-respected predecessors is anything to go by, we're not expecting a Panasonic LX6 release date in the next few months. However, like the Canon G12 and the Nikon P7000, the Panasonic LX5¡¯s resolution of 10 megapixels is starting to look a little dated. The other major limitation of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 is its relatively restricted zoom range, which covers a useful ¨C but not spectacular ¨C 24-90mm (equivalent).

Panasonic won't change anything unless its designers are sure that image quality won't be compromised, but if and when a Panasonic LX6 replaces the LX5, we'd expect modest improvements in both areas. Perhaps the Panasonic LX6 specs will feature a 12MP sensor and a 24-105mm (equivalent) zoom range, and almost certainly touch-screen controls, like the Micro Four Thirds Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2, G2 and GH2.
