I have both the RX100 and the LX7 and can understand why some people might prefer the LX7. The RX100 is my favorite camera, I love the OOC JPG's, the controls are fine by me, and the IQ is light years ahead of the competition. However, the LX7 has just about perfect controls, a wider angle lens, some great filters, better macro especially with MF, and  Panasonic finally has decent OOC JPG's. But the number one thing about the LX7 that can make this a better camera choice for many people is the price. The RX100 is $648 and the LX7 has gone on sale multiple times in the past few months for $299, less than half the cost of the RX100. For full price I never would have bought it but for $299 it is a steal.
