Welcome Patrick It is not really possible to compare these two images. Although they share the same ISO everything else is quite different, the apertures give a different DOF and the shutter speeds differ by more than a factor of 2. The LX7 is wide open and at 1/13th both of which put it at a disadvantage compared to the LX5's values. Also, the subjects in the LX7 image are much closer, so any movement is more obvious. All of these mean that the LX7 image will have more blur and that can only degrade the image.

Glad I read this before I replied. I agree with Stuart.
