On Roundup: Enthusiast Zoom Compact Cameras article (421 comments in total)

Ignoring the RX100, it looks as if this review might say the same thing about all-around-best cameras that the last DPR comparison piece on enthusiast cameras did -- Olympus first (if you do mainly stills) and Panasonic first (if video matters to you).

The full review on the LX7 brought out a couple of issues that I am wondering whether a firmware fix will address -- red eye worse than its peers, and quite visible vertical striping in sweep panoramic shots. Any idea whether a firmware fix will address these issues, or are we waiting for an LX8 (hopefully not 2 years this time)?

Ulfric M Douglas: Canon G1X : too old for this review?
Not compact enough?

Ignoring the RX100, it looks to me as if the judgment for all-around cameras might be a lot like the last time DPR did a comparison piece on enthusiast models -- Olympus first (still photography) or Panasonic first (if video matters very much).

The full LX7 review brought out a couple of things that I have been wondering whether will get fixed in a firmware update -- flash redeye issues and vertical striping in sweep panorama mode. What's the chance of firmware fixes, or are we to wait for an LX8?

The review says "it also offers the highest video specifications in this group. Indeed if you're at all serious about capturing video, there's nothing in this company to touch the RX100's 1080p60 capability"

The LX7 also offers 1080p60. Was there some other aspect of the RX100 video capability that caused the "best video in class" comment?
