Thats why I like the FZ30 ----> Comments

VERY Sharp sensor - looks like its widescreen compact Brother, the LX1 has that also !! the LX3 looks soft in comparison in the same converter (heavier AA) ..

the LX1 retains its sharpness at ISO400 but is a lot clearly noisier than the LX3 in RAW - the JPGs are a washout with the LX1 compared to the LX3 (the TZ5 blows it away too)

ISO800 is showing that Venus 4 is miles better than any previous Pan imaging engine by miles (wanna see it stretched to the limit and still working - try a TZ5 with its tiny 10Mp 1:1.3" CCD perform !!) but it's still no match for a 6Mp sensor which was designed with low noise in mind .. the LX3 RAW and cunning work in neat image is struggling to match the F20 JPG - downsize to 6Mp and the F20 will still probably be on top .. the only compact I know of which will outprint an F20/30/31 at ISO800 is the ancient Canon S30 in RAW and that's 3Mp on the same size sensor
