I reallly like your photography. I agree it might be good to wait and see what they announce this summer. Especially if you are not in a hurry.

I sold my LX3 last fall and hung onto my G11. But then the price of the 5 dropped to $250 in November or December and I grabbed one with an EVF1. I really like the EVF, the extra zoom and it's faster shooting - so if those things are important to you I'd watch for another price drop. I use Tracktor for tracking Amazon prices. I prefer the LX over the G, unless I need that swivel LCD for macros or street photos.

The one thing I did immediately notice between the 3 and 5 was that the 5 images were a bit softer; but nothing I couldn't deal with in Lightroom.

It will be interesting to see what they do with the next LX model with everything else they are doing in the m43 series.
