LF1 versus LX7: No Free Lunch

Not sure if there was a post on this yet (haven't seen one) but the Camera Labs review of the LF1 is out and does a thorough comparison with the LX7:

On image quality, the bottom line is this: "What you're getting with the LX7 is a sharper, crisper lens, which is quite simply delivering finer details than the LF1."

This is not a knock on the LF1, which delivers a smaller package with larger zoom and built in EVF.  (I'm going to buy one, for example, though I'm going to hang on to my LX7 and external EVF for occasions when bulk and zoom matter less.) It's just that there is no such thing as a free lunch.
