Gday Dan,

I'm curious to know how the replacement LX7 went?

I've been looking at one in the shops and using my memory card to take some photos home and have had some bad focusing results at two different shops! The first LX7 would focus near infinity when face detection was locked on to my wife about 1.5 metres away making the background nicely in focus and my wife quite blurry. The second LX7 focused much better, however when looking closely it appears to have focused back on the ears rather than on the eyes/nose...

Did you have better results with the new LX7 or is it an ongoing saga?



Gday Adam,

It sounds like you are considering buying yourself an LX7 then?

I am glad to say that my replacement LX7 focused just fine, both up close & at infinity.

The lens on mine is soft up close(under 20cm)until you stop down, by f2.8 it is unbelievably sharp. At distances of a meter or more it is very sharp even wide open until 90mm, where it needs to be stopped down to f4 to become really sharp again.

Good luck & let us know what you come up with.
