Re: No. You get what you pay for. RX100 is much much better.

LOL! Difference isn't that big. LX7 is a fine camera! The Sony has a lot more pixels so yes it is sharper but once you start zooming the lens is slow.

Though not of importance for everybody, for the LX3 and LX5 Panasonic provided optional 18 mm equivalent accessory lenses, which provided a good, wide, fast kit for some awkward low-lit situations. Panasonic did not make a specific 18 mm wide angle lens or attachment for the LX7, but it can use the LX5's 18 mm accessory lens with an OEM lens attachment, because Panasonic did provide the LX7 with a bayonet fitting on the lens base.

Although an accessory wide-angle attachment does go against the desire to reduce equipment to a minimum, the LX3/5/7 with 18mm accessory lenses do provide quite good, fast, wide kits with less weight and bulk, and at considerably lower cost, than any DSLR equivalent.
