Even though released a year+ ago, still as popular?

There is an brilliant optional liveviewfinder you can buy for the LX7! The LV2 serves 1.44 mil Pixel. IT is expansive but worth, to complete this excellent camera. 10 mp might be a little limited, but fits exact with lens and sensor, to blow up your picture until 120x60 centimeters. A Little bit more next time - Maybe in a LX8 - would be fine.
