Excerpt: Good for people who like to tinker and play with their settings. Expect a learning curve if you have not used a Lumix before. Menus are very sensible. Low light performance (what I bought it for) is great. Bought for travel and for those times I do not wish to lug my DSLR around.
Initially a GREAT camera. ALSO A PROBLEM CAMERA - BAD ZOOM

Excerpt: Have had 3 of them, after giving up heavy Nikon SLR's. Great P&S, but not very dependable. Two of the three (3rd is only 3 months old so no problems yet) have had Zoom failures - lockup. Looking on line, seems to be a very COMMON and FREQUENT problem with this camera.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Small / Compact
Excerpt: There is a small learning curve to using the Lumix LX7, but quite a few menu items are the same as my point and shoot Lumix SZ1. Overall, the camera takes great photos, and I enjoy the very fast lens...... along with some shooting features that rival my Nikon D5100 DSLR.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Short Lag Time
Excerpt: Took it to Las Vegas due to not wanting to lug my Canon 60D around in the 100 + heat...Took awesome photos. I had asked the Facebook B&H peeps what camera to take and this was one of 3 they recommended. So glad I bought it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I don't like taking pictures with my phone -- I think it renders lousy pictures. But I don't always like carrying around my DSLR -- too much camera to carry casually. So, a point-and-shoot is just right.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good price, Optional Evf, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I recently bought the LX7 to replace my damaged beyond repair LX5. Today in 2015 there are a lot of high end point and shoot camera options on the market to choose from. Yes the sensor is not the most up to date but this camera always works well for me when called upon to perform.
Pros: Awesome Sharp Fast Lens, Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Nd Filter, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
Excerpt: Bought the camera for Real Estate for taking pictures and videos for listing the homes for sale. Very happy with the camera quality. Also very happy and was pleasantly surprised that B&H threw in a $[$]gift card. Would recommend the camera and the B&H store for purchase.
