Hello I got both and had to return one ! The overall IQ of the Sony was better I can't deny, but, the lx7 was not a million miles away at the lower iso's. For me I returned the Sony as I just missed too many shots ! The lx7 has a superior image stabilisation in my opinion, also the lx7 felt so much better in the hand.
both great cameras but the handling and and the 24mm lens on the lx7 won through with a great image stabilisation system.
