On a related macro topic: since the DL has a lens of similar range to the one in the LX7, I wonder if the DL macro, like that of the LX7 , is only achieved at the 24mm focal length and with the lens more or less pressed right up against the subject?

If so, this means that while you can still claim 1:1, it's not as usable as a macro that has some standoff distance. I recall using the LX7 it was all too easy to throw shadows on the subject because you had to be very close. But it was still a nice feature...

Almost all zoom lenses achieve maximum magnification at the tele end of the focal length range.

If you look at the zoom ring of the DL 24-85, the macro feature is at the short end of the zoom. Of course that might be irrelevant if Nikon cams the lens mechanism when going into macro mode.
