The Panasonic LX7 has a Leica 24-90 f/1.4-2.3 lens, but it has what Panasonic calls "i Zoom" which is a kind of digital zoom that is configured to lose very little image quality. It extends the lens to 180mm. I have one and it works very well.


That's another little aspect to consider as a bonus if I ever feel the need to upgrade my LX3 (that would probably be in case that I find a new home or user for my LX3).

Benefits of the LX7 over the LX3 include then:

* newer sensor

* even faster lens

* bit more zoomrange (optical) + that "pimped" digital zoom (although in that case I would probably just crop and "pimp" in PP)

* others??

A m4/3 is probably your best bet, but an LX7 would be a lot less expensive and should do a good job. It's also a nice camera to have in general especially for those times when you don't want to bring a DSLR.

My feeling exactly.
