Well I got my LX-7 in today based primarily on Mark041's recommendation. All I have to say is this thing shoots video WAY better than you'd expect, is well made and does a fantastic job in low light.
I bought it from Amazon as a "used" item for $286 (was listed as "like new" and "may not have original packaging". It was brand new sealed in the Panasonic box!
Anyway, I've owned lots of cameras and I shoot the Canon 5d3 RAW and I am still very impressed with the LX7's performance. Unlike the RX-100 I just sold, I never got the overheating warning indicator.
Remarkable camcorder with built-in ND's and sharp 1280x720 @ 120 fps or 1080p60 for $286. It's a keeper!
