How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

With its 10-megapixel sensor, the LX7 stakes out a middle ground in between Canon's PowerShot S110 and Sony's CyberShot RX100. In some respects, the LX7 is superior to the S110; it has a better movie mode, very fast autofocus performance, and one of the best lenses available in a compact camera, an f/1.4 from Leica. It also offers a full range of manual controls and creative options, including an effective HDR mode. Its low-light performance doesn't match that of the RX100, mainly due to its smaller image sensor. Which should you buy? We still consider the RX100 our top Must-have compact, but if your budget won't support a $650 camera, you're unlikely to be disappointed with the LX7.
