If you want the hot shoe for a mic on the LX7 I think you might be disappointed since I do not think there is an interface for a external microphone on the LX7.

No there is not. Camera is great for MOS video, just not for audio. You could place your shotgun microphone on the camera, and use it to pick up sound which you then would need to feed into a small portable audio field recorder.

What are these greedy camera manufacturers going to do next -- sell us the camera, and then charge us extra for the sensor, viewfinder, LCD screen, AC adapter, whatever? Either have an EVF on the camera or don't. personally, I would not pay them 5 bucks extra for a viewfinder. If I needed a viewfinder, I would get a camera with a viewfinder. Like the Nikon Coolpix P7700, for example.
