Summary: This is a good little camera. I thought long and hard before I gave it only three stars. But, despite it being better than any other compact, I still have lots of criticism. The good: The image quality is very strong. Not as good as the DP1/2, but that camera is a disaster in nearly all other regards. With F/2 and and 400 you'll likely get the indoor shot you need. And when that fails, 800 is tolerable. The LX3 is a zippy performer too.
Summary: This camera isn't for everyone, and after using it for a few months, I'm definitely one of those people whom it isn't for. I bought it to use instead of my DSLR as a more portable camera with lots of manual controls and a good wide angle lens. For the most part, it delivered on that. But I was never really happy with it. It has a lot of manual controls, as well as a surprisingly fast wide-angle Leica lens for a compact camera.
Excerpt: In my opinion, this is a very very good DC for a greenhand of photography. I bought it when I was a freshmen in my college and I am still using it now. It colored a lot to my college life. Right now, with the help of LX3, there are more than 2000 pictures saved in my PC and I'll keep them in my whole life. And here I just want to give some suggestions to someone who likes taking picture but don't want to be that "professional"! 1.

Pros: good quality photos
Cons: complicated setting adjustments - not intuitive, ISO too noisy above 400
Summary: A useful camera to take everywhere, though not without some disappointments: 1: lens protection is by means of a (captive) lens cap which has to be removed and replaced, rather than an automatically-opening protective shutter. 2: the Program dial is VERY easily moved, and I'm constantly having to reset the dial to the required setting. I'll probably have to gaffer-tape it eventually.

Summary: Tiene tanto ruido esta cámara,que desvirtua todas las posibles cualidades que pueda tener en lo que a fidelidad de imagen y color se refiere,la lumix LX3 es infinitamente superior a la ricoh gx 200. Parece mentira que nadie pueda compararlas.
