LX7 or GX7?
11 months ago

I've been using my trusty LX5 since shortly after it came out - have been extremely impressed with it but, alas, I now have some dust somewhere on the inside and I am out of warranty.  Reading various posts I could sent it to Panny ($$$) or buy a new/used one as a replacement.  While that would make the most economic sense, that is rarely how I operate - time to upgrade!!  

Up until the GX7 announcement I would have totally gone the LX7 route but one of the draws to the GX7 is the ability for me to add lenses while still keeping a small(ish) camera.  I would really like a telephoto.

While the prices of these two approaches are very different, I also am a LVF guy, so that brings the LX7 price point up closer to the GX7 (but I'll have to wait a month - patience is also not one of my strong points).

What would you do if you had to buy a new toy?

Thanks!
