The specs are just wrong. EX2F is neither smaller, nor thinner. It's just Samsung deceptive tactics of not including the lens when measuring the thickness.  (See the actual images side by side http://j.mp/NGko0N ) 

LX7 (and everyone else) includes lens thickness, but Samsung doesn't.  It's pure  deception from Samsung. 

So the specs on this page are just wrong. They are just using Samsung deceptive numbers.
