As was seen earlier in the comparison with the G9, the G10 can produce and amazing result at base ISO. The LX3 seems to be resolving less detail than the G10, and has a slightly different tone curve. While the P6000 has almost the same about of pixels as the G10, it cannot produce the same amount of fine detail in this test. All three cameras produce low noise at base ISO.

Still a fantastic camera, and how wrong the conclusion was about how popular the G10 would be :). It's certainly not easy to predict camera sales or popularity, however, the G10 offered so much right I can't see how the conclusion could be anything other than highly recommended. Having owned the G10 before, twice, I still crave using it despite the fact that I've owned the G11,12, 15, and now 16 since. Although the G16 is infinitely better in many respects, the G10 remains the kind of camera that challenges the photographer to do everything right - and when he/she does, it rewards you with fantastic image quality.
