Samsung's competition for the LX6/7
It says to me that someone with a serious marketing department (ie. Samsung) believes that the competition from mirrorless system cameras and others has not yet smothered the market for all in one enthusiast compacts with really capable optics (here I'm guessing because no one has seen output from this camera).
There will be a certain irony if Panasonic now vacates this space in favour of a 1" sensor and a more limited lens, as they are rumoured to be about to do.
