LX7 vs RX100
Jul 23, 2012

Some thoughs about the comparison people are starting in several threads.

Personally, I´ve looked for a second at the RX100 specs and ... abandoned the camera. Simple due to the fact that it stops at 28 m focal lenght. If you ever tried out 24 mm in landscape photography you will see that the difference is huge.

The LX7 has a multiple aspect ratio sensor. This was also implemented in my LX3. If I take 16:9 shots the wide angle is even 22.5 mm. Panasonic seems to be always shy to mention this - Dpreview does : http://www.dpreview.com/previews/panasonic-lumix-dmc-lx7 ...

Thirdly I´ve compared at base ISO at comparometer and for me the LX7 looks great. The dynamic range seems to be even higher than the one from the RX100 (look right corner cloths under the cup). For me the PQ is satisfactory.

At the end both are great cameras but the intention to use might be different. For me this is more important than a borderline advantage in PQ of the RX100.

One disadvantage however is the more bulky body of the LZ7.
