However, you really need a tele for touristing, IMO, and the LX7 is not enough.

Interesting you say that. I guess it depends on the location, type of travel and/or your type of shooting. Probably all of the above.

It got me wondering so I looked and I found that when I went to Paris and the Benelux countries a few years ago, I rarely used the long end of the 18-135 I had on my Pentax DSLR at the time (~120 of 5000 photos). My wife and are traveling to Bavaria and Bohemia his Fall, so I’ve opted for the LX100ii this time around for a more compact package. I don’t think I’ll desperately miss the long end of the zoom on this trip. Incidentally my wife has the ZS100, so I suppose we have it covered if I do.

Do the camera size compare (https://camerasize.com/0. The LX100 II is much thicker than the LX7.

The LX100 II is significantly thicker than the LX7, but I never found the LX7 to be a truly pocketable camera. I usually carry mine in a case on my belt.

I appreciate your comment about the telephoto being kind of short, but that rarely bothered me on my LX7.
