LX3, is using leica len.
EP2, Lumix 20mm, 14-45mm, 45-200mm, M.Zuiko 9-18mm and SuperTak 50mm
anyways depending how u intend to publish the photos. on screen, 10mp and 14mp doesnt really matter much. cos i think even 5mp is good enough, as long as the image quality is sharp and colours are saturated. hope this helps

I love Tamron.
glad that i am able to help. Last yr i almost wanted to get g11..
however i am not so sure whats the difference between s90 and g11. both received gd comments.
I love Tamron.
yup.. cos i decided since the price is around the same, and i wanted something better than just pns to see what i can do to get nice photos...plus some encouragements from friends.
and it is more of a long term thing.. lenses are interchangeable and better.
I did not regret the choice
I love Tamron.
I guess you didn't hear about the Pentax K-xCanon 1000D. Lightest. Cheapest. Still as Good.
I don't subsidize marketing campaigns.
I have a G11 myself, and I think the dials at the top of the body for the exposure, ISO and mode settings are good in the sense that I don't need to navigate through all sorts of menus to make the changes that I want. This is my personal preference.
You said you missed some 'golden moments' in the past due to the time it took for you to navigate through menus to change settings, so maybe this may help you marginally. I think you should see how long it takes you to make the same adjustments for the two different types of cameras (one with the dials and one without) and whether it really makes a difference for you.
Another factor you may want to consider is the amount of zoom each of the camera provides. For example, the G11 provides 5.0X zoom, whereas the LX3 has 2.5X. It really depends on what you shoot. Because I just picked up photography and didn't know exactly what I wanted, I got one with a slightly longer focal range for greater flexibility.
frankly.. I find the turning knobs rather useful..
I think this blog sum it up very well..
I was also looking to upgrade from my PnS Canon IXUS 800IS (bought brand new from a forum mate here) recently and had considered G11, S90 and LX3. Also looked at SX1 and S5 and eventually bought a used S5 from a forum mate here, cos of the photo in movie function.
I always refer to CNET Asia for review and incidentally they also compared the 3 cameras - http://asia.cnet.com/reviews/digital...965337p,00.htm
Click on the compare button for the ratings of the 3 cameras.
yea im prolly gonna go down to get some hands on before making the purchase but as of now im leaning towards g11.
i came across reviews on g10 and its not v ideal for capturing moving objects (eg: pets/babies). am kinda curious to know how does g11 fair?
btw u guys know of g11 add-ons (eg. flash/lens)? and how much roughy will they cost?
quite frankly.. I've also got my G11 recently.. so still learning about it.. but I know that the G11 has a pets/kids mode for this purpose, which actually drive shutter speed up..
I am also very interested on the add-ons as well.. last check with MS, adapter with wide angle lens about $120, for 3rd party adapter.
also introduce you a great book for G11 (in case you decided to get one later)
Canon PowerShot G10/G11: From Snapshots To Great Shots
can be bought from Funan Computer Book Centre for $35.
actually this series of book also has for other makes of camera as well.
so have you tried out the modes?how did it fair?
what are the kinda "cons" or areas whereby you feel the camea could do with some improvements?
oh yea mind if i ask how much did you get your camera set and from where?
