Thanks all, I ordered the LX7

Glad to hear! By the way, great idea on using points for camera equipment. Was that a special program or just an airline miles program? I wonder how many miles something like the LX7 or D7000 would run.

I live in Canada and its an airmiles collector card that you can use for trips or merchandise. You can collect points from a bunch of places. It's usually 1 point per $20 but sometimes places like Safeway have 100 to 200 bonus points or 3 to 5 x the bonus points etc. We just accumulate them till we want something. I cashed in 4800 points for the LX7. The choices are limited, they don't have the Nikon D7000. Now I just have to wait 2 to 4 weeks for delivery, that is the only downside.

Interesting. I checked United Airlines Mileage Plus. They have some older DSLRs like the D5100 or Sony A35, EPL-3 in m4/3, lots of Canon P&S and older DSLRs, but they actually have the RX100 too which is a current camera. For 80K miles. No LX7 though.
