    Hard of the heels of Thom Hogan's comparison of the P7000, G12 and LX5, Dpreview has just published a lengthy side by side review of the P700, the S95 and the LX5. No surprised but still worth reading.

    It was a good read. What I don't understand is that they have comparison on the images with the Samsung TL500, but really don't talk much about it in other places. I don't understand this page here: Enthusiast Compact Camera Group Test (Q4 2010) Review: 15. Photographic tests: Noise: Digital Photography Review

    They say that the results are similar at ISO 800 for RAW output in ACR, they mention the Samsung having the sharper output. I agree, but to me, the LX5 has a slight edge on the S95 and P7000 otherwise. Overall, it was a nice concise review, albiet a little late compared to the other review sites.
