I've just been on holiday with an LX5 and an 808 and for the most part the 808 did make the LX5 redundant. However there are situations where the LX5 is way superior, most important for me is in macro mode where the 808 is useless, and in long exposures in low light where the 808 seems to give up after about 1/8 th of a second. Also, despite the resolution of the 808, the LX5 images "pop" in a way the 808 doesn't get close to, even after post processing.

Here's one 808 shot I rather liked and I plan on posting more later, maybe with a personal review.
