Summary: Years ago I had this camera and I missed it terribly. It takes remarkable pictures that most digital cameras can't match. Plus, it is quality built extremely easy to use. You don't need "fancy" when you have the best.
Summary: The lens is as good as a real leica M lens. Produce excellent picture, especailly on B&W films. The camera is not that samll but still very portable. The shutter noice is even not noticeable. The 2.4 aperture is pretty fast. There are two points that make it not perfect. First, the highest shutter speed is only 1/400, so if you use a ISO400 film in the daylight, it might not be possible to get a low enough exposure even with the smallest aperture.
Summary: I have been using these cameras for more than ten years. I have three of them (2 leica minilux and 1 minilux zoom). The body is very robust and sturdy. It is very professinal looking. The lens is excellent, said SUPER! Even it's open wide to f2.4, it's still very sharp. The contrast and colour are much better than contax T2. All pictures can enlarge to 30x40 inches without any loss of detail and contast. The lens is the best among other P&S cameras.
