The Canon APS-C sensor is actually about 75% larger than the LX100 ii; 329 sq. mm vs. 187 sq. mm.*  That is why the LX can have the 1.7-2.8 aperture in such a small package.  The APS-C may deliver better image quality, dynamic range, etc. because it uses a larger sensor.  I have found the lens to be quite sharp.

It may not be as sleek as a rangefinder, but the handling is superb.  Plenty of dials and buttons to make using it very easy.  It functions exactly like a well thought out DSLR.

*"The LX100 II uses the same 20MP CMOS sensor as the DC-GX9 though the multi-aspect design means you only ever get to use up to a 17MP, 187 mm2 crop of it (the full sensor area of 4/3 is 225mm2)"  ...from DPR review of the camera.
