I've been intrigued by the LX100 ever since its announcement, and it turns out that it seems to be going down in price, making it even more tempting.

Things that have kept me away:

- no tilt screen
- no pop up flash
- electronic zoom motor
- mixed reviews on IQ
- not full 16mp sensor

Ideally I would love the features of the GX7 but with 4k video, and I am crossing my fingers for an announcement at the upcoming CP+ imaging event.

Any LX100 owners here care to share their experiences?

Here are some comments I posted comparing the LX100 to the Canon G7X, which I assume you are referencing, not the Panasonic GX7:

Nice summary there. Actually I did refer to the Panasonic GX7. I know it's not a fair comparison to compare an interchangable lens camera vs. a fixed lens camera, but you would think the LX100 wouldn't discard some features from a previous camera...I guess they needed to in order to keep the size as small as it is.

Size and price, and maybe to allow room for some obvious upgrades when they come out with the MKII version. Initially the lack of flip and touch screen soured me on the LX100. But I've accepted those exclusions as a necessary compromise for now. I will be curious to see what other companies may offer now that the LX100 has set the standard for this type of camera.

It is fair to compare them, depending on the camera and intended use.
Sigma DP Merrills give image quality better than most more expensive interchangeable lens cameras around.

LX100 may not be in that class but having it in your shirt or coat pocket to pull out and use when a bigger camera can't be with you makes it worlds better than anything you don't have at the time.

How big will the prints be? That is a consideration. How high an ISO setting do you use? Another consideration. Having a small camera with a decent zoom that has a fast aperture is a real plus. A big one for many is the 'non threatening' nature of a small point and shoot camera. Very simple to be ignored when you have the small point and hoot out but the object of unwanted attention when you pull out the DSLR.

The image above is in a small diner. Panasonic LX5 sitting on top of a water glass, composed looking at the rear screen. Clicked the shutter release when the guys looked interesting to me. If I had the LX100 the image quality would most likely be a bit higher. Usability of both is similar.

No matter what you get if you work with it enough so it is familiar and you aren't fumbling you should do just fine.
