    It's your choice totally. If size is more important to you than the image quality, then the LX3 is definitely the one you should get. It shoots great pictures for a compact. It has manual controls, so it's not really a P&S. Just don't expect DSLR-quality images from it.

    As a compact, LX3 is a great camera to be carried with you all the time. The image quality can never compare with those captured on the larger sensor 4/3 or APS-C. That's why the LX3 costs only $700+. Here's some pics I've taken with the Lumix LX3.

    For info, GF-1 is not a SLR. It is classified as compact camera with SLR cam capability.

    I got the GF-1. NICE!!!!! just saving money to get the 14-140mm HD lens.

    If you are going to be cameraman for the whole trip, GF-1 is good as the shooting is faster.
    If you have to bring kids and carrying things around as luggage man, LX3 better as you can keep into your pocket anytime.

    I have kids and brought them abroad b4, hardly have time to take picture.

    I owned a LX3, quite happy with it.
    A week ago I bought a DSLR Pentax K-X, even more excited.
    If i were to travel, I'll choose the K-X over LX3. So for your case, I'll choose the GF1 anytime.
    To me, to take great pics is the 1st priority, but of cos K-X is also consider a small size DSLR.
    btw K-X with kit lens is also $700+
    Some pics using kit lens:
