Near my car this morning, I spotted a small patch of one of my favorite late summer flowers, Ironweed. I decided to see how the X30 and LX100 compared directly. I set both on f/2.8, and tried to keep the exposures and FOV as close as possible. The sun didn't cooperate, however, as the light shifted between exposures. It would have been nice to see the LX100 example if the direct sun hadn't changed, but the X30 image (1st photo) compares favorably in my eyes. The LX100 clearly has the shallower DOF, which is to be expected.
