Conclusion

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.

Reasons to buy

  • Excellent photo quality, with less noise than typical compact cameras
  • Leica lens gives excellent sharpness and versatility in low light
  • Full manual controls with RAW, white balance adjustments, bracketing, and custom button
  • Handy aperture ring around lens

Things to consider

  • Aperture ring cannot be customized, unlike similar controls on its competitors
  • Takes a long time for camera to flush the buffer after a burst containing RAW images
  • Very slow lens zooming action
  • No redeye removal tool in playback

Suggested for

Low light enthusiasts who desire a camera with manual controls, fast performance, expandability, and a top-notch movie mode.

Not suggested for

Those planning on taking a lot of people pictures with the built-in flash - redeye will likely be an issue. Also, slow zoom speed can be very annoying.
