Oh, I assure you (including Joseph) that I have done a lot of reading of reviews of the G11, GF1, LX3, e620 and others. A LOT.
What all the comparisons show is that YOUR bottom line is going to depend on what YOUR criteria are. Change the criteria, and you change the conclusion. There still is no perfect camera.
As I implied, my criteria do include being able to carry the camera in a pouch on the shoulder strap for ease of access, having a zoom capability, along with an integral viewfinder and a swivel LCD screen. Why these?
* I think the ease of access is self-explanatory. I have tried pouches on belts and slung around my neck, but they just don't work as well (for me) as a padded pouch mounted on a shoulder strap.
* The zoom facility is a pretty standard requirement, but it has to be included while the shoulder pouch requirement is met. The gorgeous zoom lenses of the DSLRs fall at this fence. (I have a box of lovely Zuiko lenses from the film days - sigh.)
* An integral viewfinder allows me to take photos without having to put on close-up reading glasses to be able to see the screen. There have been times when I have either not had the time to fumble for glasses before losing the scene, or even when I have not had a spare hand to get the glasses out. (A diopter adjustment on the viewfinder is nice too.)
* The swivel LCD screen is invaluable when I am using the camera in the studio to take tricky close-up photos of gear, and in the field when I am lying on the ground taking a photo of some very small orchid.
BUT, if YOUR criteria are different, then your chosen camera will doubtless differ as well.
