Great little product for the price

David, Amazon
3 July 2013
  • 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. Seeing as I bought this used, it was a good camera for the price. I was able to get some really beautiful shots with it.

Leica C-LUX 2... and that was all

eric min, Amazon
18 April 2013
  • 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. When I put in a new battery, everything was fine and I decided to keep the camera and not to return it.

Not really worth the money

Yvette Sanz, Amazon
19 May 2010
  • 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. It's stylish, it takes great photos, it's tiny; basically it's perfect. But honestly, there's no way it's worth the full price new.

wish I had not bought it

EL "EL", Amazon
5 April 2010
  • 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. Customer service was completely insensitive to my troubles with their product and my request for replacing it. If I have problems with it again, I will have to pay for repairs since the warranty expires soon.

Leica C-LUX 2 Digital Camera

  • Summary: I am *extremely* impressed by this little Leica. This will be a rather short review since this camera model is already, like, 300 years old in dog years. I was able to pick a new one up for less than [...] on the internets from someone who clearly didn't know what they were parting with. When I inquired into why the party was selling she only told me that her husband needed something newer.

Excitment turns to "meh".

Jonathan M. Derda, Amazon
20 October 2008
  • Summary: I was hoping to find something different. Something better than the rest. Sometimes you just don't feel like the usual selection is good enough. I already had a Canon, everyone and their brother had a Nikon. I was thinking about the slim line Casio, but who wants to buy a Casio? So one late night / early morning I found this Leica. It looked different than the Canon/Nikon/Casio/Olympus and plus it had that little red badge on the front. I had to have it.

Uh oh

Harry Pujols, Amazon
15 August 2008
  • Summary: I got this camera new and within the first day of use an issue came up. The mechanism to cover/uncover the lens was faulty. When I turn the camera the lens come out but remains covered. Sometimes it just opens halfway. I don't know if other owners have experienced the same problems, but considering how delicate is this mechanism, I imagine is a problem with the model in general.
