Re: X10 iso 1600 equal to Panasonic LX3/LX5 noise at what iso?

I have an Lx3 and It seems I'm a purist, since I wouldn't go above ISO 200 normally (ISO 400 when no other option available - but realistically, that happens very rare) .

With what I've seen from Fuji X10, I would set my upper limit to ISO 800 (which is also my upper limit for my dslr - Pentax K10D).

But I think it's not ISO-wise that makes the comparison relevant. Lx3 is absolutely lousy at colors in jpegs (you know the famous red issue) and in Raw you have to work a bit to get rid of it. X10 colors are a charm.

Not to mention viewfinder, manual zoom and styling. And the longer lens, because the one in Lx3 I do find frustrating - at the wide end it's distorting, and the tele end is not tele.
