In terms of design, almost no change from the LX-5. Lumix LX7 still performing with the concept of black retro classic and minimalist. Panasonic did not include a touch screen into the LX7 and still use TFT screen measuring 3 inches in the rear.
I think this step may be done to cut the selling price. There is one extra that I think is very good, the apperture ring close to the lens. You can set various functions by twisting the ring, just like the Canon PowerShot S100 and Sony Cyber-shot RX100.
