After im done researching between both cameras above, and which one to buy, im still confused.
The LX3 bar none is an excellent camera, but the G10 manual features with full range of manual dial such as iso, exposure and shooting modes does beat the lx3 hands down.
What is worrying thou, is the fact that probably my perception of how bad the g10 image quality is compared to the lx3 is further worsened by the totally hands down win of the lx3. I am pretty sure and convinced that the G10 is better than most handhelds camera, but the sheer overwhelming review of the lx 3 will undoubtedly make me feel like shit if i do in fact buy a g10.
so much dilemma just buying a camera haiz.
