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 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.
Summary: I'm not going to say anything that someone else hasn't said already or written already about this camera. This is just my 2 cents. I have had mine almost 3 years to the day (from Amazon, at the time they were $599) and it's been everything I had hoped and much more.
Summary: I was in the market for a small compact comera with good images being top priority. I did so much research I was almost over buying another camera for my collection. I read every single review on here(on the Leica D lux 3), in hopes that I may find some common ground on user reviews.
Summary: As a Panasonic Lumix TZ3 owner I wanted the ability to manually focus and adjust aperture and that was my main reason for purchasing this camera. I did not want to go the slr route because of the size and weight of those cameras. I put the heavy camera and the bag of lenses behind me 20 years ago.
