'The 55mm F1.8 is quite sharp and also enjoyable to use'
It's actually from the A7 review, 'Handling and shooting Experience' page
It made me smile when I read that. Talk about damned with faint praise!
harry cannoli: I have to admit I'm a little bummed that the LX7 failed to stand out in any meaningful way, despite the fact that I'm a hardcore DSLR shooter who adores this little camera. Sheesh, I am a fanboy.
I suppose the big sensor in the Sony means so much more than the beautiful, super-fast, pin sharp lens in the LX7?
The lens makes the magic, the sensor records the magic made by the lens. The Sony sensor does an absolutely fantastic job of recording images created by it's plain vanilla lens. Of course the magic created by the lens is a personal judgement, but that Panny lens stands out, heads and shoulders above the pack. How can I see this and the respected, highly competent reviewers barely acknowledge the outstanding flavor of that Panny lens?
Oh, never mind. I'm a fanboy :(
Thank you Richard for getting this done. Good job.
Maybe the RX100 is just another case of the 'The Emperor's New Clothes'
Have to agree with you Harry. I had the RX100, great video but was never happy with the still images. I eventually sold it. Now I have the LX7.
Much, much happier with these new images. There is something special going on in that Leica lens...
Just makes you wonder, if the OLED EVF improves to the stage where it can negate the fitting of the preview screen on the back of the camera. Full circle!
I agree why not 3:2?
Flashback: I'm not seeing the Studio Comparison Tool. Is this link broken?
Works fine with Chrome, but not with Explorer?

Maybe true focus-free photography is the next big thing for digital. I think this is just the start.
If the Nikon 1 can shoot 60fps, maybe we could have many different focused images on one shutter click.
