LX7 Review on DC Resources
Aug 19, 2012

I'm surprised that no one else here has mentioned this review by Jeff Keller, who has recently been enlisted by DPreview to do several jointly-published camera reviews. He likes the camera a lot, but points out several shortcomings. I've enjoyed and benefitted from his reviews for years. I think he's one of the best. He has many sample photos with the review and he takes shots of the same scenes for all cameras, to give good comparisons.

It looks like it will be more than a match for the Sony RX100. Right now, the RX100 devotees on the Sony Forum have a thread on this comparison and another thread there is intended to urge DPreview to do a review on that camera.

If DPR does this and the review points out the numerous flaws and missing features of the RX100, its users will be very upset. Read the Wikipedia article linked below on the phenomenon that I think has affected them. They have hijacked the Sony Forum and there's hardly any option there to discuss anything else.
