P&S Sharper than Canon DSLR!

Taken from a Cameralabs.com Panasonic LX3 review:

"As for the Canon 450D / XSi, its default image processing (like most DSLRs) is more restrained than even an enthusiast's compact, so side by side, its results look relatively flat. But as we've seen before, the kit lens is really letting the side down here, delivering a disappointingly soft result in some areas, particular in the third row, taken from the lower right corner. Results like these prove a decent quality compact at its lowest sensitivity can deliver superior results to a DSLR when coupled with a budget lens."

You don't see many direct comparisons of P&S versus DSLR's.

What is going on? Wow, a special shot presents itself, put away the Canon 450 and pass the P&S, I want a sharp picture.

Why are Canon using such a poor performing lens - to make L glass look better?

Other point of view is, "look how good P&S really are", what are peoples views?
