As well as being compared against other boutiques, the Leica D-Lux 7 is also often compared to travel zooms, mirrorless, pro digicams and super zooms. The Leica D-Lux 7's top rivals come from Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI and the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VA) and Leica (such as the D-Lux (Typ 109) and the C-Lux)

compared toBoutique competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Leica D-Lux 7 compared to other boutique competitors include: it has a slightly wider aperture (f/1.7 vs f/2.8), has way more more zoom (3.1x vs 1x), has a much wider wide angle lens (24 mm vs 28 mm), has better image stabilization (lens vs none) and has a touch screen.

However, on average it has a slightly smaller screen (3" vs 3.7"), users slower contrast detection autofocus (contrast detection vs phase detection), is thicker (2.5" vs 1.6"), doesn't have a built-in GPS and doesn't have a built-in flash.
