Summary: I bought this product right before traveling overseas. It was a great camera for traveling. it has a good lens. My only gripe with it is the lack of a lens finder. Battery lasted almost two days, taking about 40 pictures a day. Overnight charging, so it was ready the next morning.
Summary: Only two of the accessoires were present: a batterycharger (US-standards, not European) and a little bag (both not original). No wires, no memory card... At first, the camera did not work at all. This was due to the battery (non original). A shopkeeper in Brussels discovered that it was broken.
Summary: I am not technologically savvy, but I find this camera intuitive and easy. I take both family photos and art shots and have been pleased with the color quality and the range of options for manipulation. Worth the price for me.
Summary: I've had several digital cameras. However none have ever satisfied me. I use to be deep into photography preferring 2 ¼ format. Then, for ease of use and carry around I slowly moved to 35mm, trying to stick to Kodachrome 25, this gave good results. As I got into digital cameras I've had several.
Summary: I will be surprised if the Leica D-Lux 2 does not prove to be a successful product for both Leica, and the camera's manufacturer, Panasonic; this is without question the best compact digital camera to result from this successful partnership.
Summary: The camera is a fine small camera but with two big problems. There is no view finder, a real problem if you want to take photos outside in sunlight. Second, the screen that you use to frame the picture becomes almost invisible in sunlight, impossible to see and frame the shot.
Summary: I currently use a Canon 20D, Canon 5D, and Canon Elan7ne with a variety of lenses. I wanted a very good - small "point & shoot" digital camera and the Leica D-Lux 2 not only fit that need it exceeded all of my expectations.
Summary: I found this gorgeous little camera at a thrift shop completely broken and priced by someone who obviously had no clue what it was. I sent it to the Leica shop to get it fixed which cost several hundred dollars. For $260 (which is what I ended up paying for it total), it was completely worth it.
Summary: I bought this camera with full faith in Leica products despite the high price tag Five months after light use (about 300 photos in all), the camera was not working. Leica repaired but refused to replace bad product with same or equivalent model.
Summary: I purchased this camera because it is very small and easy to carry on. As all Leica products, this camera produces very great images, the color contrast is amazing, and every color appears to be real when you get the image printed.
