The screen shots are not low-light - they are bright screens in a dark room.
The issue of focusing was in regards to continuous AF. There's a firmware fix coming out in a couple of days.
With the EOS M, you can just touch on the subject and it locks focus. So, it would actually work in that situation.
TBH, the EOS M is a much more advanced camera than LX7 - way better build, extensive menu system, large APS-C sensor.
I'm not knocking the LX7 for what it can do, but it's more in the point and shoot category. EOS M is a basically a compact DSLR/mirrorless.
