As recommended by forum member, I purchased an LX7 recently.
As seen from Price.com , LX7 only cost $1941.
However, every shop quoted says they do not have stock and have no idea when they will have stock.
I was very disappointed and decided to buy from a famous merchant starting with B...
The little camera come in a nicely build paper carton.
In order to protect the camera lens and use filters, I decided to buy the original Panasonic Filter Adapter Kit.
Brand new, silver 37mm B+W UV MRC for 1/3 the street price.
The Heliopan adapter is for CPL.
I hate using LCD when taking photos, so I made good use of the hot shoe and added an optical VF.
全新, 銀37毫米B+ W MRC UV 以1/3的零售價購得。
Setting the date:
I didnt know the camera has built-in virtual horizon.
It is a handy tool when you are trying to take some scenery or architectural photos.
But of course, if you are serious, you should use a tripod.
Next is the Voigtlander 21/25 all metal optical viewfinder.
Originally I wanted the Panasonic one.
But I saw online reviews said it is not very accurate.
I spent a week to search online, and someone said the V21/25 is very close.
So here it is, come in a nice blue baggie:
Ta-da! The all metal finish is very attractive.
It is heavy but very well built.
Gonna last longer than me for sure!
Installed on camera 安裝在照相機上:
Front view 正面:
The clear blue liquid is a bonding agent from USA, which is used to clean the LCD surface and ensure protector will stick firmly.
I also purchased a Manfrotto pouch for protecting the camera, 2 extra original batteries and 2 SD cards.
The pouch also fit the LX7 without VF.
As you can see, 3M carbon fiber sticker was used to cover all the name plates.
Sample images taken at home are very sharp even at 100%.
Outdoor photos will be added later.
LX7 RAW -> JPG using DxO without any correction.
Resized using Canon software.
Outdoor candlelight dinner turn out to be ISO 400 F1.4 1/40.
Very enough for handhold photos.
White balance is quite accurate too.
以前用DC的時候，都有留意Panasonic LX系列，見到外國user forum d 鬼佬影嘅風景相，真係有點驚為天人，再加上網上大讚，真係好想入貨，後來公司買了部LX3影樣本記錄和聚會相，就有點失望，因為室內影人D影色怪怪地，樣本記錄D色又唔啱，要執餐死，就打銷了購買的念頭，但係喺鴨寮街又真係比較多配件賣（自動鏡頭蓋，鏡頭adapter，可以加鏡和filter), 應該唔會咁難用，我諗可能係我當時唔識用，

Those are photos taken at my home.
the white balance is fine, but exposure seems to be over by 1/3 to 1/2.
I have yet to take it out later and experience it.
白平衡是好的，但似乎暴露了超過了1/3 到 1/2。
It is very lightweight and fun little piece of equipment.
Good for snapshots and travel.
I would put it in my bag everyday!
