As well as being compared against other boutiques, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is also often compared to pro digicams, mirrorless, super zooms and travel zooms. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100's top rivals come from Panasonic (such as the Lumix DC-LX100 II and the Lumix DMC-LX10 (Lumix DMC-LX15)) and Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 IV and the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV)

compared toBoutique competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Panasonic DMC-LX100 compared to other boutique competitors include: it has a slightly wider aperture (f/1.7 vs f/2.8), has a much wider wide angle lens (24 mm vs 28 mm), shoots faster continuously (11 fps vs 6 fps), slightly larger viewfinder (0.67x vs 0.34x) and is slightly less expensive ($537.59 vs $3,890.00).

However, on average it has way more less zoom (3.1x vs 4x), takes slightly lower resolution photos (12.7 MP vs 24 MP), doesn't have a touch screen, lacks and external mic jack and users slower contrast detection autofocus (contrast detection vs phase detection).
