There is a huge difference between 3 lux and 1 lux.

But don't buy the Sony based solely on its low light ability. Both the Sony VX-2100/PD-170 and the Panasonic DVX-100A are excellent camcorders, and each offers some features the other lacks.

If you are planning on shooting indie films, or material that will be viewed in progressive mode, the DVX may be the way to go. It also has some color adjustment features that its fans are very fond of.

If you're primarily interested in weddings and events, with their run-and-gun style shooting, or your clients are going to view your output on an interlaced TV, then the Sonys could be your best choice.

Above all, buy the camera that feels best in your hands, and whose controls are easiest for you to understand.
