Hi 2eyesee, I understand what mean because I had same hesitations.Here are my reasons to choose LX7 over RX100 AND Canon G15

1. Wider angle - in fact it is amazing! The sensor of LX7 is multi aspect so in 16:9 you gain additional pixels and angle is wider than 4:3 24 mm!

2. Better low light performance - because of faster lens. This is one very ineteresting russian comparison concerning few enthusiast compacts:

3. Better video especially in low-light situations. I suggest you to see this movie on YouTube:

Canon is even worse than RX100.

4. Exellent image stabilisation! I was able to achieve clear nice looking images at night even at shuter speed 1/2 or 1/4, handheld.

What you loose? Better AUTO! The Auto of LX7 is quite disappointing... There is no articulated screen (as you think). Size is bigger and IQ in normal light can not match RX100.
