No word on when the Leica D-Lux 7 will begin shipping, but if you are feeling generous, this would be a welcome, albeit pricey, gift for your photography-obsessed loved ones. Alternatively, you could check out the much cheaper Panasonic Lumix DC-LX100 II, it lacks the little red dot, but the tech specs are the same.
