A lizard destroyed my compact camera (S95) and so I need to buy a new one and have narrowed it down to these two, anyone have any strong opinions either way? Probably go with the LX7 at the moment as it's only 240 versus 290, but I'm open to being convinced otherwise!

Im finding the LX7 noisy. Might be ive just got used to M4/3s. But i dont remember my LX3 been so noisey.

At what ISO? You don't have auto switched on do you?

I still use an LX3, and find the noise is fine up to ISO 200 but goes to crap from 400 up. Barely useable at ISO 800.

I haven't used an LX7, but from what I have seen of other cameras I would expect a significant improvement by now.

It's more money, but the Sony Rx100 is meant to be the compact of the moment (well, apart from the Sony RX-1!)

I can't help you with your camera choice but I am intrigued by "A LIZARD destroyed..."

ISO 80 and 100, full auto. Film mode: NR-2. Theres noise in the midtones. But like i say, ive been using a M4/3 (GH1) for awhile and snice i last used my LX3 ive got into post alot more. Maybe ive got fussy. Also the buttons have got cheeper, the menu is slow and the time lapes fuctions suck. Ive broke my LX3, i might get another. Or try a Sony?

It's almost 200 more than the LX7 so I wasn't really looking at that :-P

LOL, well it's nothing too exciting, my own fault really. While crouching to get good look at a centipede, a lizard jumped on my face. In my suprise I dropped my little compact and it landed lens first.

Anyway found the LX7 for 230 so went with the cheap option in the end!

Sorry bought the camera before I saw your post. Also I wanted a compact with a wide aperture if possible.

That's going to be written on list on the wall of a cubicle at your insurance company somewhere for the 'best reasons ever'.

What kind of centipede? Arthropod or human?

The poisonous arthropod type
