I would like to see a Nikon P7700 with the wide zoom extended to 24 mm eq.
(or a Lumix LX7 with the tele zoom extended to 200mm eq.)
As long as it doesn't end up with a bulky thing like the Fujifilm XS-1.
That's not too much to ask for, isn't it?

landscapist: Wait a minute, where's the automatic retracting lens cap?
Seems it's no longer there.

Yep, that must be the reason for omitting the automatic lens cap. Now it will take some more time before 'ready to shoot'.

gl2k: I'm impressed how bad the LX7 performs in RAW mode. Even at ISO 200.

The studio shot of the LX7 is out of focus (front focussed). Take a look, everything close to the camera is sharp, al the rest gets out of focus.

iudex: It seems to me the Nikon performs better than the other newcomer Pana LX7; watching at ISO1600 RAWs there is visibly more noise from the LX7. On the other hand the Pana has 1 stop advantage (at the wide end and 0,5 EV at the tele end), which would in real world mean lower ISO, thus lower noise. Anyhow I am positively surprised with the performance of P7700.

The studio shot of the LX7 is out of focus! Take a close look to the paperclips, they are sharp. The background is out of focus.
If the studio shot was performed well, the LX7 would perform more close to the P7700 (which really performs fantastic, i agree!)

ijustloveshooting: better than LX7 at iso800, look at the blue watch on right corner at iso800...also sharper....lens on p7700 is brilliant considering it's zoom range and aperture.

Take care, the LX7 studio shot is out of focus! The parts closest to the camera are sharp, further away things get out of focus.

@ DPReview: The studio scene looks to be out of focus (front focussed). The parts closest to the camera are sharp (check the paperclips). the parts further away get out of focus (check the playing card).
Apart from this: a great review!
