LX7 vs. E-PL5

It comes down to zoom vs fixed lens. 10Mp vs 16Mp. Shorter dynamic range vs. rather amazing dynamic range.

I have both cameras, the LX7 and E-PL5. The Olympus completely outshines the LX7 when you start manipulating the images in Lightroom. Get the exposure correct with the LX7, though, and it's a very fine camera. I use both cameras a lot.

If I had to pick just one, I'd go for potential image quality and get the E-PL5.
