Well, I have been pleasantly surprised at the quality that I'm getting from 
my LC5.  I haven't tried the lowest quality but the high quality jpeg and 
the tiff beat anything that my Nikon 990 could do.  I can send anybody 
e-mail samples.  The autofocus is very fast and very accurate and the photo 
output is easily good enough for 11x14 prints.  I'm hoping for even better 
from the Leica version, but I got an e-mail from Leica today that says that 
they won't be available until after the first week in June  :-(   probably 
too late for my trip to Honduras.  I'll have to make do  with the Panasonic 
and my new M7.

I went to Steve's Digicam site and could find nothing but rave reviews for 
the LC5.  Where did you find this poor review?
