Having seen/handled both (D-Lux 3 and LX-2) I must say I prefer the Panasonic. Don´t ask me why, It simple feels beter in my hand.Go figure. I would like to know if anybody could coment on the "real world" differences between this two cameras. If we leave aside the bundled software and the extra year of warranty of the Leica are there really great diferences? Much has been said about the differences in the JPEG results, but, shooting RAW, would there be any differences in the files fom this little machines? Are the JPEG´s from the Leica really superior?
