Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7
It wasn't easy to improve on the already impressive DMC-LX5, but Panasonic managed to pull it off with their new LX7. Enthusiasts will love its fast lens, manual controls, photo quality, and 1080/60p movie mode. Beginners can enjoy the LX7 too, thanks to Panasonic's great Intelligent Auto mode.
Low light enthusiasts who desire a camera with manual controls, fast performance, expandability, and a top-notch movie mode.
Those planning on taking a lot of people pictures with the built-in flash - redeye will likely be an issue. Also, slow zoom speed can be very annoying.

There's a lot to like about the LX7. The metal-finish body produces a classy, high-end feel that doesn't disappoint, while the ability to add an EVF is bound to appeal to the more discerning shooter. On top of that, the controls, interface and now the addition of the aperture ring make this a very fast and enjoyable camera to shoot with.

There's very little to dislike about the LX7, with my main issues being redeye, slow buffer flush times when shooting RAW images, and vertical lines...
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 review
The Lumix LX7 re-establishes the edge Panasonic gained when it launched the Lumix LX3 and ignited the interest of enthusiasts by offering the holy grail of DLSR control and decent quality in a compact form factor. Since then the World has moved on though and there's now a lot more choice, not just from other compacts, some with larger sensors, but also mirrorless compact system cameras....
