Like others, I have been tempted to spring for the sub-$300 deal on the Panasonic LX7 being featured until the end of the month by Amazon.com. In addition to having a pocketable, fixed-lens camera, I like the idea of being able to use the Panasonic LVF2 on it if I want (I already own this EVF for my GX1). But the very fact that I own the GX1 also causes me to pause and wonder if it might be better to opt for the Panasonic 14-42 X power-zoom pancake lens instead of the LX7. The GX1 isn't much larger than the LX7 and when I need more flexibility than the 14mm or 20mm pcankes can give me, the power-zoom lens would keep the size down. Yes, I know the aperture is slower: f/3.5-5.6 versus f/1.4-2.3 for the LX7's fixed lens. But the four-thirds sensor in the GX1 is quite a bit larger than the 1/1.7" sensor in the LX7, which would mean the ability to gather light and achieve a narrow depth of field at the wide end would be enhanced. And this is where I'm asking some of our best and brightest to do some calculations. When one crunches the numbers, am I better off with the GX1's larger sensor and slower lens... or the LX7's smaller sensor and faster lens? Beyond this, if anyone has any thoughts on which way to go, by all means feel free to chime in.
