  • Summary: Because the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 costs almost $500, there are quite a few photographers who won't give it a second glance. For beginners, this is probably a smart idea. However, if you have some photographic experience, the LX7 is well worth a second glance ... and maybe more.

  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 may not score as highly as other recently reviewed cameras, such as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 and Fujifilm X10, but it is still a very capable camera and the best Lumix LX camera yet.

  • Excerpt: If you’ve not yet been swayed by one of Panasonic’s interchangeable lens Lumix G compact system cameras, but would still like to achieve improved quality image, then the metal construction and comprehensively featured LX series is well worth checking out.
  • Pros: Relatively lightweight and compact dimensions. Bright aperture lens. Hotshoe and accessory port for attachment of optional extras, such as an EVF.
  • Cons: Fixed screen LCD. Priced not a great deal cheaper than one of Panasonic’s interchangeable lens G-series compacts system cameras.
