The RX100 starts at 28mm but has in-camera sweep panorama which allows super wide angle shots way beyond 24mm equiv. (as long as the subject is not moving too fast.) At the long end the RX100 goes to 100mm equiv. but the 20MP image size lets you crop to over 140mm field of view at 10MP (the resolution of the LX7.)

There has been a lot of talk about the RX100 having soft corners at 28mm wide open. The LX7 is supposedly sharper in the corners wide open.

At the long end, the RX100 is much sharper and goes way beyond the 90mm of the LX7.

Worth twice the price? To me it was.

Thanks, that's the kind of contribution I had been hoping for.
