Putting my new LX7 through it's paces.

Well, I picked one up this afternoon for $397 (Sydney) as a store demo model, it was missing the lens cap, but I was given a LowePro pouch as compensation and 12 months extra warranty, so I got it as I was badly suffering from LX lust

All shots OOC full frame

Took these on the way home from the store, limited location, so had to stretch the imagination.

So now have a few questions for the seasoned owners;

1.) When do you use the physical aperture ring as opposed to via the control dial?

2.) Is it normal for the lens to be protruding that far when in the Wide setting?

I expected it to be in the folded position at the wide angle end.

3.) The ND\Focus function, how does it operate?

Cheers, been after one of these little beauties since jumping into the Lumix Pool with both feet
