Default panasonic GF1 vs LX5 vs G10

  • Looking through the panasonic line and want to figure out which would give the best photos for the dollar. GF1 looks cool, or trendy, but would go for the LX5 with leica lens if basically the same quality, I dont need interchangables either. I have haing trouble deciphering the specs 10mp ccd sensor on the Lx5, vs more advance cmos? sensor 12mp? on GF1, or for value the 380$ G10 on amazon. I have a digital compact elph, but looking to step up for photo quality but not an slr. Any opinions from fans of panasonic? I like the idea of using the viera feature with my flat screen.

Here are two articles you might find informative... even if they don't compare all three cameras together at one time. But between the two pieces, all of the cameras are reviewed and you can probably draw a reasonably informed conclusion.:



Some additional notes: Understand that, in pure image quality terms, the GF1 will beat any of the other cameras because of its much larger sensor. You'll notice the difference the most in demanding circumstances - like low light or high-contrast situations. Given your current priorities, including your intention to not use interchangeable lenses, that may or may not be important to you because the other cameras are no slouches - especially for their class. But make no mistake: The GF1 is in a class above the others. Also know that, while the LX5 lens is a Leica-branded lens and is quite good, this is still made by Panasonic to a Leica (or Leica-approved) design.
