Panasonic Lumix LX7 Digital Camera Review$499.99
It's hard to find a Leica logo on a low quality lens, so we had certain expectations about the performance of this glass. Chromatic aberration did not leave us disappointed. Fringing is basically absent from both lab shots and sample photos. In the crops below, you'll notice only a thin blue band in the upper corners of the image, and only at maximum focal length where the lens struggles most.
Barrel distortion is very noticeable at the closest focal length, and we're surprised this effect isn't automatically corrected in software. Otherwise, distortion is measurable but far from problematic.
