XZ-2 & XZ-10 vs the direct competition?

Between these four cameras, all of which have 3" 920k LCD display screens, the notable differences seem to me to be:

  • Panasonic LX7 - widest lens and can sometimes be found for $299
  • Panasonic LF1 - has a built-in viewfinder and a slower but 7.1x lens
  • Olympus XZ-2 - has a tilting LCD display
  • Olympus XZ-10 - has a smaller 1/2.3" sensor and cannot accomodate a viewfinder

Panasonic LX7
Sensor: 10.1 MP 1/1.7" CMOS
Lens: 24–90mm @ f/1.4-2.3 (3.8×)

Panasonic LF1 (0.2" EVF)
Sensor: 12.1 MP 1/1.7" CMOS
Lens: 28–200mm @ f/2.0-5.9 (7.1×)

Olympus XZ-2 (Tilting rear display)
Sensor: 12.0 MP 1/1.7" CMOS
Lens: 28–112mm @ f/1.8-2.5 (4×)

Olympus XZ-10
Sensor: 12.0 MP 1/2.3" BSI-CMOS
Lens: 26–130mm @ f/1.8-2.7 (5×)

The choice is hardly clear but the deeply discounted LX7 might be hard fo rmany people to ignore.
