i just got my LX3. although i hv read the reviews before but still not quite sure how good is this little one. as i used to play with digital SLR, so compare compare i afraid i might not satisfied with the result. i knew i shldn't compare as they are totally different. tomorrow going around to do some testing.
Nevertheless, the price you are paying for the LX3 is also really worth it, fast lens and wide angle.
you might even find the IQ (at certain settings) comparable to one from the kit lens of an SLR!
you will love how sharp it gets!
but of course images below have been resized smaller.
