Truely amazing image quality!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX7K 10.1 MP Digital Camera with 3.8x Optical zoom and 3.0-inch LCD - Black (Electronics)
I will try to keep this short and sweet. I am not a professional photographer, but would call myself and "advanced amature". I studied the whole spectrum of high end pocket digitals for weeks before making my purchase, reading all of the reviews and finally settled on the Lumix DMC-LX7. I have no regrets. Panasonic hit a home run with this camera. Forget everything you have heard about sensor size and pixel density, this camera is techno nirvana. The bright, quality leica optics matched with the 10.1 MP sensor produces truely jaw dropping, sharp, and super bright image quality. The light gathering capabiliity of the optics is such that I rarely actually even use the pop up flash, even indoors with room level lighting. The wide angle lens feature is a benefit that surprised me with it's utility. Until you have the capability, you really don't know what you are missing.The camera quality is startling, the features intuitive, and I am thrilled with Panasonics latest entry into the high-end pocket camera market. I believe this camera will be the yardstick by which all others are measured. I also have a large frame Nikon DSLR and find that I rarely use it any more as I can get comparable results with none of the hassle. Oh, one more thing, I almost forgot... the Hi-def video will BLOW YOUR MIND! Go on you tube and check out the video quality of this camera... and be prepared to be amazed. If the price level of this camera is within your budget, buy it. You will be one happy camper. Have fun. PS: I eventually ended up buying an aftermarket black leather case (that was marketed for the LX5) that provides total protection for my investment, looks cool, and I can throw the camera in my pack while hiking without worrying about the camera getting banged up.

You mentioned that you bought "an aftermarket black leather case (that was marketed for the LX5)". Would you tell me exactly which case you bought? I too want to protect the camera the same way you did.
Thanks for all the detail in your review.

Will the HOYA HD2 CIR-PL 37mm fits as well as the Panasonic DMW-LPLA 37mm? I own the Panasonic filter-adapter kit for my LX7.

Sorry, I do not know the answer to your question.
