Old Vlux 40 is going to be totally inferior on anything higher than ISO400. With LX100 they have bigger size of sensor which gives impressive IQ for ISO1600 and higher.
If you are planning to use ISO100 and have Leica label on lens and camera, I guess, V-Lux v40 is good.
Personally, I don't like this model line due to too long to be practical super zoom and too slow max aperture. I still prefer my old Lumix with normal zoom and 2.8 aperture.
Unfortunately, this line was dropped around 2010. It is really compact, long battery life and Leica character in rendering.
I would go for LX100 for travel. Better IQ and faster Leica lens.
