    What a deal for a great compact camera like that.

    Its been at $299 or below many times since it first came down around Black Friday of last year. They raise it back to $450 or something every now and then to maintain the illusion that $299 is somehow a "sale" price. And it may stimulate sales a bit each time they lower it. But given how often its been happening, I think $299 is basically its price and I feel bad for anyone who's not aware of this and pays the higher price for it. If its not on sale for $299, give it a couple of weeks and it will be...

    But I fully agree its the photographic deal of the year/decade/whatever at that price during its regular product run, rather than just when they're making room for its successor.

    A good deal for sure, I'm very pleased I sold my S100 and changed to the LX7 for that type of camera.

    I've considered buying a second LX7, but for a bit less money I'd rather had one more GX1 body.

    Looks like it was a flash sale, and it is back to $349 like everywhere else.

    While it is a great camera, I think it isn't worth more than $300 right now. Especially with the LF1 coming out in a few weeks.

    I don't think LF1 really competes directly with the LX7. A fast 24-90 and a slow 28-200 serve very different users/uses.

    The speed of the LX7 lens has much to do with how well it works for me.

    That's a good point, I had forgotten that the LX7 had such a fast lens - I was thinking it was a 1.8 like most of the other cameras in the class.

    No only is it a fast lens, but the real advantage to me is that it closes only slightly compared to other cameras on the tele end.
