Re: Does anyone care to say an LX7 can't do astro?

being able to eat so much light with an F/1.4 lens also means you can really get away with some lower ISO shots you wouldn't get away with a large format camera with a slower lens. That in turn negates the fact that the LX7 really doesn't resolve clean images above ISO800. All in all I'm relatively impressed for the first time I've attempted this kind of shot with my LX7. Here I was thinking it wouldn't resolve the night sky properly.
