Summary: It is a nice camera, but does not justify the price even for the low price you pay on e-bay, My newer sony which I bought cheaper brand new takes better pictures in the low light. Leica is definitely better in day light use.
Excerpt: Purchased a C- LUX 3 back in Nov 09 have used it 6 or7 times, unsure about the black finish, shows every mark, image quality not great, build quality not great. Its a real shame because I wanted to be more positive about this camera. Problems: Quality issues
