    I think that's a similar problem I remember experiencing.. was at the highest f-stop of 8 already, iso relatively low, trying to shoot water flowing effect but due to bright sun the shutter was still very fast and instead get a freeze effect.. no sure if this min stop of f8 is a negative point of a LX7..

    Usually f8, that is why there is the built in nd. If need to slow down further, need to find alternatives like nd filter to put on http://panasonic.net/avc/lumix/compa...cessories.html

    Iirc, f8 is smallest for olympus xz1, similar category but doesn't have nd built in, which is a plus. Any smaller aperture might impose diffraction and reduce the IQ a lot, perhaps the reason for restricting to F8?

    Ya, if need stop further, just use more ND or wait for light to diminish...

    Got a set from amazon as well.
    Is it a good choice to purchase a "OEM" battery charger with EU plug from ebay for convenience or is it better to stick with using the original charger with travel adapter?
    Also, is auto lens cap a must?
    Please advise.

    the oem autocap makes the camera look ugly.. that's my thought.. I has one end up never use because I can't accept the look.. ha

    I use the adapter + filter instead.. adapter is original comes with 37mm cap.. filter is Hoya.. but do take note that such combi causes shadow of the zoom barrel when shooting with built in flash at widest angle.. even with just tw adapter also..!

    Is it more advisable to buy those half case or buy a normal camera pouch for the lx7 so that I can pack spare batteries and memory cards with it?

    It will be just great if LX7 is a little less bulkier...... the whole camera feels abit big compared to Canon S110 and Sony RX100

    The half case is purely for cosmetic purpose. Looks nice on you only.

    Should be leh. I go home see again. You need to remove the front piece of metal at the front in order to install the auto lens cap right?

    Major differences
    LX7 - 3.8 x zoom, effective 24-90mm, F1.4-2.3, Full HD video
    GRD - 28mm f1.9, VGA video

    Apart from that, grd has snap focus and street shooters swear by it. Ergonomics GRD IV tops it. For day to day, LX7 is more user friendly with the zoom. GRD IV being fixed, thus "force" or even train one to go around shooting in that focal length, I believe would improve one's photography, certainly not everyone's cup of tea. I would think GRD IV image would be better than LX7. Think of prime vs zoom.
