Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 has a larger-than-average image sensor and a fast zoom lens, but it's best to keep the ISO set on the low side.

Fast lens. 11fps burst mode. Accessory port for optional EVF. Shoots in Raw. Short shutter lag. 1080p60 video.

Limited zoom range. Soft images at telephoto extreme. Noisy images at ISO 1600 and up. Control buttons are difficult to read.

You don't get a built-in optical viewfinder. To compare, the Fujifilm X20 has an optical finder that is impressively big when you consider the camera's size. The Canon PowerShot G15 and the G1 X also give you optical finders, but they aren't as large...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7

 

Please note that in addition to this collaborative review, we have also produced a 6-page hands-on preview of the LX7, which contains plenty of additional information. You can find that preview here.

Excellent photo quality, with less noise than typical compact cameras ; Super fast F1.4-2.3, 3.8X optical zoom Leica lens gives excellent sharpness, and versatility in low light ; Multi-aspect sensor keeps pixel count high in different aspect ratio...

Aperture ring cannot be customised, unlike similar controls on competitive cameras ; Redeye a problem; no removal tool in playback mode ; Takes a long time (30+ seconds) for camera to flush the buffer after a burst containing RAW images is taken ;...

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...

Panasonic joins the wide-aperture wars with LX7

 

Though some people may be disappointed by the camera's still relatively small sensor, the fast lens is arguably a more important advantage.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX7 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix LX7 is a camera that has some really nice features that aren't found on most fixed-lens cameras. Finding an aperture ring and quite a few manual control options is a nice change of pace for those who are used to really thin...

High-quality Leica F1.4 lens with aperture control ring ; Good image quality and sharp focus ; Mode dial makes it easy to select the options you want ; Popup flash provides excellent low-light photo quality ; Included lens cap fits tightly to protect...

3.8x optical zoom lens is a bit small ; Image quality may be just a little below what advanced photographers are seeking ; Movie recording button is too small ; Some controls may be a bit confusing for beginning photographers ; Menu structure isn't...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 is a premium compact digital camera with a fast lens, full range of manual shooting modes and RAW file support. The new LX7 aims to build on the success of its LX5 predecessor with a new 3.8x, 24-90mm f/1.4-2.3 zoom lens,...

The popular Panasonic LX-series has received a rather modest update with the arrival of the new LX7 model. The aperture ring and ND filter button are welcome additions to an already proven design that particularly appeals to more experienced...

Panasonic LX7 Review

 

It's not just beautiful, the Panasonic LX7 is a serious photographer's camera in a small package.

Fast lens; Sharp lens; Rock-solid image stabilization; Fast autofocus and shutter lag; Level gauge

Sluggish startup; Battery life lower; Switches can change accidentally; Slow buffer clearing

Fast lens, one stop faster than predecessor Lens sharp corner to corner Image stabilization is rock-solid Very close Macro mode Very wide lens at 24mm The lens is "the stuff of camera-lover dreams" Fast autofocus and shutter lag Very fast burst modes...

Panasonic Lumix DMC LX7 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC LX7 is a little known camera simply because it didn't ship out of the house of Canon or Nikon. What is little known about this camera is that it not only sports a Leica lens, but also the fastest lens in a point and shoot...

Fastest lens in the category, Leica lens is exceptionally sharp for compact form factor with physical aperture dials, Excellent video bitrate along with stereo sound

Focusing can be a little daft at times, Archaic menu system that is a pain to browse through

Panasonic Lumix LX7

 

The Panasonic Lumix LX7 is a premium compact camera aimed at enthusiasts. With a larger sensor than most point-and-shoots and sensible 10.1 Megapixel resolution, a bright 3.7x zoom lens and 3in screen, it offers manual exposure control and full HD...

Very bright f1.4-2.3 zoom lens ; Dedicated aperture control ring ; 11fps full-resolution burst shooting ; Close 1cm macro focus ; Shallow depth of field for macro shots

Cap obsctructs lens on power up ; Limited Creative Control effects ; Aperture ring redundant in some modes ; No Wifi, GPS or touch-screen

The Lumix LX7 re-establishes the edge Panasonic gained when it launched the Lumix LX3 and ignited the interest of enthusiasts by offering the holy grail of DLSR control and decent quality in a compact form factor. Since then the World has moved on...

Lumix DMC-LX7

 

($499) is the long-awaited replacement to the very popular DMC-LX5. The LX5 (and its predecessors) was well known for its low light ability, and Panasonic has improved on that in two ways. First, there's the LX7's lens: with a maximum aperture range of...

Excellent photo quality, with less noise than typical compact cameras ; Super fast F1.4-2.3, 3.8X optical zoom Leica lens allows for better low light shots, more background blur ; Multi-aspect sensor maintains the same focal length at all four aspect...

Redeye a problem; no removal tool in playback mode ; Takes a long time (30+ seconds) for camera to flush the buffer after a burst containing RAW images is taken ; Vertical stripes in panoramic images ; Cheap-feeling rear dial doesn't rotate smoothly;...

Overall, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 is an excellent premium compact camera. Its fast lens, performance, and manual controls will make enthusiasts drool, while those just starting out can get great results using Panasonic's Intelligent Auto mode....

Panasonic Lumix LX7 - Bright Lens, Small Camera

 

Panasonic's LX7 is the successor to their popular prosumer camera, the LX5. It features a much faster lens, among other improvements, and comes nearly two years after the release of the LX5. But even though the lens is brighter, the sensor size hasn't...

Fast wide aperture lens ; Superb manual handling ; Snappy auto-focus ; Wide dynamic range

Lens cap is a hassle ; Aspect ratio switch prone to accidents ; Less battery life than LX5 ; Pricey

The Panasonic Lumix LX7 is the best expression of the LX series; nearly everything you could want is here. Handling is smooth and nearly perfect for a prosumer camera, with manual controls within easy reach; we especially like having the aperture ring...
