I don't have either of those, but both companies have been in the camera business for a long time so you should be good with either one

Excellent cameras. However, if you are going to shoot night scenes, the Canon cannot match the Panasonic in the high ISO and noise departments. The Canon has a longer zoom 5x vs 2.8x) but the LX3 lens is twice as fast (f2 vs f2.8) and wider so it is far better in low light situations, and the pictures suffer far less from noise artefact's because of its much larger sensor.
