If you'd read the previous post you'd see that detailed measured reviews rate the RX-100 at 0.26 ms to acquire focus. That is not my result. I can attest to knowing the latency between the LX series and RX-100 certainly feels like the 1/4 second the review measurements show. Get your facts straight before you spout off.

All you have to do is look at the review at Imaging Resource. But to save you the trouble, their measurements of the RX100's performance are:

Full Autofocus, Wide Angle 0.153 second

Full Autofocus, Telephoto 0.266 second

Flash (Full AF, Wide) 0.372 second

Continuous AF 0.314 second

Manual Focus 0.032 second
Prefocused 0.013 second

Quote from Cameralabs, LX7 Review -

''In practice, the Lumix LX7's AF is fast and sure-footed. Other than a name change from the LX5's Sonic Speed AF to Light Speed AF on the LX7 Panasonic isn't claiming any specific AF performance enhancements. What I can tell you is that in general use in all kinds of lighting situations the LX7 consistently outperformed the Canon Powershot G1 X and the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 both in terms of its speed and reliability'.

Let's agree they are both(LX7/RX100) quick for compacts, but as you can see one well respected reviewer thinks the LX7 is a tad faster and more dependable.
