Let's agree they are both(LX7/RX100) quick for compacts, but as you can see one well respected reviewer thinks the LX7 is a tad faster and more dependable.


Of course we can agree on that. But can we also agree that just because one reviewer found the LX7 a tad faster (even if he's got it right), it doesn't justify calling the RX100 sluggish? What do you think? Can we agree that insisting on calling one of the fastest cameras in AF (according to all reviews) sluggish, can only mislead unsuspecting people and only reduces the value of this forum?


he was absolutely right about slowness of RX100.

Here is comparison from one very reputable reviewer

S950 vs RX100 vs LX7

As one can see, RX100 speed did not improve much in comparison even to the old Canon 950S from 2007.

Still very similar AF times and much worse IS.

Latest 1/1.7' bright lensed cameras like Lumix LX7 are more than twice faster in snapping action.
