DP1 and LX3: A (Very Rough) Comparison (imgs in reply)
Aug 29, 2008

Towards the end of a routine business meeting at my office today, my client told me he'd just bought a new camera: the Panasonic LX3 (very nice cam!). Better still, he had brought it with him in his briefcase. I just happened to have my DP1 in my desk, so a chance arose to do some very rough and ready test pictures.

Here are the two cameras side by side:

Next, a couple of comparison shots and crops (in the replies). We had little time, (and no tripod) and so I do not hold these out to be scientific proof of anything. Hopefully however they at least give a flavor of how the cameras stack up 'side-by-side'.

Raw development in Silkypix (for DX3) and SPP (of course!) for the DP1. No parameters were touched at all in the conversions to .jpg.
