Summary: quality and ease of use with this littly rascal. the battery is lasting long enough for my all day shootings in nyc, etc. only criticism is the manual was a little sparse and had a few errors in it. the camera is pure quality.
Summary: I've had lots of cameras over the years (Canon, Nikon, Olympus) and still do. This is just about the handiest one I've ever owned. Really nice images even in low light situations (just place it on a wall or pew back and hold tight and some nice pictures are caught).
Summary: I've had this Leica for 3 years and I am happy with it. It is expensive but it is a Leica. The quality of pictures taken with this is noticeably better. I have seen after-market lenses for this but I don't own any so I don't know what the quality of distance photos would be with an add-on.
Summary: For the price, you cannot GET a better lens. Outperforms many Cannon and Nikkons twice the price! My pictures look like you are THERE. LOVVVVE it!!! I get soo many compliments. Check out Flikr groups dedicated to the Leica D-Lux 4.
