  • Conclusion: While we typically love the products that Panasonic brings us (especially in collaboration with Leica), we felt like this one missed the mark for their typical quality. Though we did like a lot of aspects of the design and functionality, the image quality just did not cut it.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, good design, fast frame rate video.
  • Cons: Inexpensive, good design, fast frame rate video.

Panasonic LX7 Camera Review

26 July 2013
  • Excerpt: The Panasonic LX7 is the top model of Panasonic’s compact camera range. It uses a (large) 1/1.7” image sensor and has a moderate image resolution of 10MP, the same resolution as the forerunner LX5 but with a new lens system with outstanding speed capabilities.

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 has a larger than average image sensor and fast zoom lens, but it's best to keep the ISO set on the low side.
  • Pros: Fast lens. 11fps burst mode. Accessory port for optional EVF. Shoots in Raw. Short shutter lag. 1080p60 video.
  • Cons: Limited zoom range. Soft images at telephoto extreme. Noisy images at ISO 1600 and up. Control buttons are difficult to read.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 Review

Digital Photography School
17 February 2013
  • Excerpt: It seems to me that the fixed lens, compact camera game has spawned two sub species: ultra long zoom models and those with ultra fast lenses … to some they’re called ‘bright’. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 belongs in the latter category and a dazzling model it is too: compact, light in weight and full...

Panasonic Lumix DMC LX7

14 January 2013
  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC LX7 is a little known camera simply because it didn't ship out of the house of Canon or Nikon. What is little known about this camera is that it not only sports a Leica lens, but also the fastest lens in a point and shoot camera.

7 January 2013
  • Summary: At £449, the LX7 finds itself priced pretty competitively and positioned in the middle of the sector, with more affordable and pricier enthusiast compact models out there to pick from. There’s a lot to like about the LX7.
  • Pros: Polished and refined design, excellent lens with ultra-fast aperture, plenty of features, option to add an EVF.
  • Cons: Good screen but needs to be even better to match rivals.

  • Conclusion: Sometimes you don't want to carry a big SLR to get quality images, and that's why cameras like the Panasonic LX7 were born. Small enough to fit into a biggish pocket, the Lumix LX7 has an excellent lens and a good quality image sensor, both tuned to capture good images even in reasonably low light.
  • Pros: Fast lens, one stop faster than predecessor, Lens sharp corner to corner, Image stabilization is rock-solid, Very close Macro mode, Very wide lens at 24mm, The lens is "the stuff of camera-lover dreams", Fast autofocus and shutter lag, Very fast burst modes, Mechanical switch for aspect ratio, Go...
  • Cons: Short telephoto lens at 90mm, Physical aperture ring can confuse, as maximum aperture changes when you zoom, Sluggish startup, Slow buffer clearing, does not appear to be UHS-I compliant, Battery life not as good as predecessor, Slightly below average hue accuracy in JPEGs, Aspect ratio or focus ...

DP Review
15 October 2012
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Excellent photo quality, with less noise than typical compact cameras, Super fast F1.4-2.3, 3.8X optical zoom Leica lens gives excellent sharpness, and versatility in low light, Multi-aspect sensor keeps pixel count high in different aspect ratio modes, 3-inch LCD with 920,000 dots, very good out...
  • Cons: Aperture ring cannot be customised, unlike similar controls on competitive cameras, Redeye a problem; no removal tool in playback mode, Takes a long time (30+ seconds) for camera to flush the buffer after a burst containing RAW images is taken, Vertical stripes in panoramic images, Very slow lens...
