    Anyone remember one of our old Serious Compact favorites, the Panasonic LX7? B&H is offering it at $277 as a Cyber Monday deal.

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 Digital Camera (Black) DMC-LX7K B&H

    I had one of these and loved it. But it's amazing to me how long the camera has managed to remain a current offering and how long Panasonic has kept the price up.

    Hard for it to compete in today's market of bigger sensor/big zoom compacts.

    That's a great value - looking over my LX7 images, they look darn good - well worth the $277.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    It's a fine price for a nice camera. But IIRC, Panasonic was regularly selling the LX7 for around $250-300 within months of it's release. The original RX100 was released at roughly the same time and took everyone by surprise with that larger sensor, and Pany was playing catch-up from the start. Unlike the earlier LX5, which stayed a lot closer to it's initial price for a lot longer than the LX7 managed to. If you want the camera, $277 isn't a bad deal, but considering it was often (not constantly, but it seemed like every few months they discounted it) sold for about the same price shortly after release, I don't find it all that remarkable more than three years later with the LX100 having been on the shelves for a year...
