A fair comparison and consistent with my own experience vv my 20D and a 
good friend's LC1. This is not to say that the photos from the LC1 do 
not have their own character, which I find pleasing. It's main drawback 
is the limiting 5MP resolution. I wonder if we will see a 7.2 - 10MP 
version with a better and faster viewfinder. That would be very 
interesting to me.

I'm actually quite pleased, for a point and shoot, with my Sony DSC-V3 
and its "Zeiss" lens.
