The current LX7 with Gariz case.
My best sources confirmed that Panasonic will launch a large sensor LX8 in July. Panasonic goal is indeed to make a high quality compact camera as the Sony RX100M3 (just announced two weeks ago). Therefore it has a built-in EVF but it will keep the LX7 look.
Announcement date is set for July 16!
One more thing: It’s still not confirmed via trusted sources but rumor has it that Olympus will also launch a high-end compact inspired by the Olympus Trip 35 film cameras (on auction here on eBay).
