  • i picked one up from DWI for around $330 delivered a couple of weeks back… very nice camera, especially for indoors…

    • Same.. $330 from DWI a month ago.. Chose DWI over B&H for the local repair warranty.. Great camera

      • If you need an extra battery, i recommed this mob

        I've been buying camera batteries from them for years… Shame they don't allow pickup any more, but postage is free if you buy 2 or more items…

        • Thanks.. But I thought Panasonic cameras after the latest firmware update don't recognise non Panasonic batteries.

  • How does this compare to the Pentax Q or Olympus pen mini?

    • +1

      Olympus PEN has them both for dinner as far as sensor size & low-noise capability goes (the Panasonic LX7 and the Pentax Q both use far smaller sensors)

      BUT

      Both the Pentax and the Panasonic here come with good low-light lenses.

      The Pentax Q comes with a Standard Prime lens rated at F1.9 and the Panasonic DMC-LX7 comes with a non-removable F1.4 (wide) to F2.3 (tele) 3.8x zoom included. This counts for a lot of nice shooting capability in dim light.

      Having a zoom range of 3.8x with a lens as fast as this is a nice thing. Compare that to the standard 3x zoom that comes with the PEN, which isn't half as bright.

      But again, when shooting with higher ISOs and whatnot, there would be few that would argue that Olympus PEN Mini isn't the better camera between the three, as far as noise goes.

      But there are a lot of strengths and weaknesses in the cameras here besides the sensor tech, so you can compare many other things between them. For the sake of my sanity and yours, I have kept it brief.

      Long story short: The Panasonic DMC-LX7 here comes with a nice bright lens for low-light and natural-light shooting which opens up your creative potential :)

  • Kogan has the camera for $329 + shipping. Just wait til they have another one of their free shipping promos and pick one up then if you want to save on shipping. Having 12 months grey warranty is better than none at all from B&H I guess.

    • DWI has free shipping on this item and you don't have to deal with Kogan…

      I also found DWI respond promptly to emails…

      • Yeah, I have no problems with DWI too, they seem good.
