anyone compared fuji x20, pana lx7 and oly zx2 IQ ? Is there a significant difference
Apr 16, 2013


I am in the process of chosing a new camera. I already own a Panasonic G1 and several lenses (not state-of-the-art sensor, but very good handling) and a Canon P&S (don't remember the model, but I really don't like the handling - too small & the lens is not very sharp)

I will keep the G1, but I also need a smaller camera ; my main criterias :

- smaller and lighter than G1 (I wand a camera that can easily fit in a bag when I am hiking)

- reasonable image quality (12' x 16') / decent IQ in low light

- if possible, greater dynamic range than the G1 (I don’t like washed out skies

- a viewfinder would be nice but I could live without it

- good handling

Shooting raw is not a problem

I have narrowed my selection to the following list : Fuji X20, Panasonic LX7, Olympus XZ-2.

Sony RX100 is not in my list because I think it is too small (I have tried it in a store, I do not like the handling and I am not sure an additional grip would be enough to improve it)

I live in France where the LX7 is not much cheaper than X20 or XZ2 (it’s still a bit cheaper, but not so much than in the US), so price is probably not my primary criteria.

To sum up : do you think there is a significant difference between the IQ of theses 3 models (X20, LX7, XZ2) ? If possible I would like an advice from somebody already using them.

Thanks a lot
