- Compared to the LX3: The LX3 is a great camera. The G11 is better. It should be, as it's technology is 15 months newer. Noise is about 1 stop better on the G11, and dynamic range is significantly better. Image #5 above would not be possible on the LX3 - the skin would have blown out. Handling is better as well, with lots of control knobs and a more comfortable size. In the LX3's favor is it's wider, faster lens.
My G11 will serve three functions: as a macro camera for weddings, a vacation camera and as an always-with-me camera for casual snapshots and videos of my kids. Professionally, the only time I would consider using it would be when I needed to overpower bright sun with off camera flash using ultra-high speed sync. It's either use the G11 or buy/rent $20,000 worth of high-powered lighting gear.
Landscapes, macro or portraits, there's really nothing this camera can't do. Detail is amazing. Any one of these images would have sufficient detail to print a double truck magazine ad, no problem. In short, the G11 is the best small-sensor compact on the market today.
