Summary: I been using this camera for a several years now. This camera has all the features I need. The days of big heavy cumbersome cameras are gone for me. This camera will do more than what the average person would do with a big 35mm camera.
Summary: the lens and the light this camera get are awesome... the zoom is a little useless and lose focus easily... but is only matter if you are super obsess with the perfect picture. i really love this camera
Summary: I don't claim to be a technical expert on the internal workings of a camera - I just love to make art. All I am interested in is a well-built, sturdy product that will capture my vision as I see it, and I cannot always carry around my bulky DSLR, and do not always want too, either.
Summary: I wanted this little point and shoot camera to be amazing. I had SUCH high hopes for it. But it is super slow, you take a picture and then it take almost 45 seconds for the camera to be ready to take another. It also isn't very reliable when it comes to focusing correctly.
Summary: I'm writing about my Leica D-Lux 3 camera--whoops, I mean my Leica D-Lux 3 paperweight (if one is careful, it also might be usable as a coaster). The camera was purchased in 2007 and worked fine until late 2011 when the LCD screen went black except for icons that were still visible.
Summary: I mostly shoot Nikons, at the moment a D80, D300s, and a full frame D700. This little Leica does a super job. It has all the features anyone needs in a point and shoot and then some. Raw pictures look super and so do JPGs. A little slow saving the 20 mp raw pictures.
