Cant decide between LF1 and LX7

Ive been looking through all the high end compact cameras for like 2 months now and im getting close to buying one. But i still cant decide which one to pick. My needs are as follows:

im a cinematographer so mostly i need a pocket camera for location scouting (lf1 is smaller and easier to carry around in pocket + doesnt have to deal with lens cap). I dont care for raw, i need okay jpegs straight from camera. Also panoramas.

good aperture for dark scenes (lx7 clearly has better lens)

film small video clips of rehearsals or castings (both do okay video)

for travel (lf1 size and zoom length is a plus)

I like lx7 a lot on paper, but i dont like to figgle around with lens cap and the fact that its bigger. So for my needs LF1 seems like perfect match given its size and everything. But its like 50-70 euros more expensive and also has worse battery life.

Tell me something useful
