I'd been contemplating the Sony RX100M II, and that camera is a beautifully built and well designed instrument, but there is just something about it that seems a slight bit removed from what a camera should feel like in my hands. That's my opinion, but it's the impression I've been left with after using one. Truly can produce images that rival a micro 4/3's in many ways, but there is just something about how the Sony line has always handled that feel less "photographic" to me. Again, my personal preferences.
Here is some history, but I think it's important to my overall opinion of this camera. I've been making images for almost 40 years, many of them with Leicas and even Minolta. Back in the 70's and 80's, Minolta was chosen by Leica to partner, develop and produce some of it's designs in Japan. The Leica CL, the smallest M series Leica ever made and the early R series Leica SLR's were all manufactured by Minolta. Later, Minolta themselves produced their own rangefinder camera (the CLE) and their own small series of lenses, but in the Leica M mount. Why does this matter? Leica's reputation for durability and quality, as well as it's place in the history of photography are indisputable. Their cameras and optics are among the finest ever produced in the world of 35mm, but also photography as a whole. So to me, any company (such as Minolta....or Panasonic) that Leica would choose to partner with has a golden endorsement.
Now, in my move to the DLUX 6 I just wanted a Leica. Plain and simple. I also convert every image I shoot with the LX7 to a .dng file, so my workflow stays unchanged. And, whether they've made changes to the .jpg processing or not has no significance to me. Did Panasonic say "hey if you design a lens for us, we can make some bodies for you, and we have an accord"? Was it a total collaboration? I don't really care. I like handling the Leica more, prefer it without the grip on the right side. Some of the controls are easier to read (especially the 4-way buttons on the back). I already own the LVF2. I enjoy the C1/C2 features, double the standard warranty, etc, etc. Never had to use Panasonic customer support, but Leica are excellent.
So on the one hand, you can enjoy almost all of the features and benefits of a far less expensive camera in the LX7, or you can pay more and own the Leica. The value of the LX7 is clear, and perhaps that of the DLUX 6 is a little harder to quantify if reasoned in the functional sense of only the camera's feature set. But with the Leica I willingly paid a premium for the name, the history, the design tweaks and a few other things. It's all down to my personal preferences and individual taste and priorities.
The one feature I probably like most is the ability to change of capture format ratio: 1:1, 4:3, 16:9 and more.
The pictures are crisp and always well exposed. In addition, the free Adobe license for LightRoom is another real plus to further process images.
The camera is well built and leaves an impression of robustness. It is light but not too much.
The battery must be charged with an external charger, so procuring additional ones is mandatory if you want to always be ready to shoot.
