Re: Travel camera feedback (LX7 vs LX100 II vs Fuji X70)

I have the LX100 MKI.

I really the LX100 MKI for its hands-on operation. However I would not consider the LX100 a "pocketable" compact; in fact I find it too bulky (overall body/ lens depth) to comfortably carry in a belt-type case.

Also for myself I find the 75mm EFL too short for travel, hence I got the ZS100 to complement the LX100 as the ZS100 is pocketable and can be carried in a belt-type case, and the ZS100 uses the same battery as the LX100.

If you truly want a "pocketable" travel compact, IMHO its hard to beat the RX100 VI with its f/2.8-4.5 24-200mm EFL if you don't mind the $1,198.00 price.

You can easily do you own quick comparisons.

The ZS100 probably the current best 'bang-for-the-buck', but IMHO to get optimum IQ need to shoot RAW.

Imaging-Resource.com ZS100 Review HERE. Has a lot of JPG/ RAW images.

Right now you can get the ZS100 with the Panasonic DMW-BLG10 Li-Ion Battery & Charger Travel Bundle from B&H Photo for $497.99 (includes free shipping) HERE .
