D-Lux 7 vs X30: The sensors

D-Lux 7 features a Four Thirds sized sensor, while the X30 uses a Compact sensor.

Boasting an area of 225mm² (0.36 sq.in.) the sensor of the D-Lux 7 is a lot larger than the X30's chip at 58mm² (0.09 sq.in.). In most cases a larger sensor will yield better results in low light, a considerable advantage in many situations (think: interior images, dusk or dawn etc.), a clear disadvantage of the Compact format.

Better choice: Leica D-Lux 7
