b) not that often that you are shooting in perfect light,

c) not that often that you are shooting in strong light, but without high dynamic range in the scene

and in both b) and c), the less dense sensors tends to perform much better than the high resolution ones.

I think you can make a good case for b), but c) is less obvious. For example, at any given spatial frequency, the LX3 has a full stop more dynamic range than the 5D2. D3X has half a stop more, though, IIRC.

..how could be? according to dxomark comparison, LX3 have a clear edge in both b) and c) over G10 (let's don't overcomplicate things and lets stick to the same size sensors/similar class cameras)
