Image quality in B&W. LX3/LX7

Is it just me, and perhaps I'm being a little hasty in writing this, but since purchasing the LX7 just over a month ago, I have been unable to get the kind of quality in B&W that I'm accustomed to from my LX3. Although I can clearly see that colour rendition is far superior in the LX7, I have yet to see better B&W images, at least from my own camera. Perhaps it's a matter of further tweaking, or getting the right lighting conditions. I never had the LX5, so in the four years since the advent of the LX3, there have clearly been vast improvements, but for some reason, I don't seem to be able to see them in B&W.

By the way, I was relieved to find that that the LX7 just about fits into the original LX3 leather case. It's a tight fit, but it fits. I would appreciate your comments and advice on the matter of my issues with B&W quality.

Regards

Byron.
