Summary: Must have camera if you want a compact and easy to use camera but because its leica make it costly. Anybody please share with me to improve the brightness in less light places. Thank you
Pros: This camera really idiot proof and produce good quality pictures. Awesome.....
Cons: In less light places, the quality and color depth still best for compact camera. But the brightness of the picture not so bright, i think need improvement and adding built in HDR. Its really troublesome if we still need to edit from light room.
Summary: I was looking for a compact camera that would fit in my jacket pocket and would take good quality pictures and have RAW capability. I currently have Canon T2 DSLR and a Canon Powershot SD700 but neither camera was suitable for all situations.
Summary: The Leica D-Lux 5 is now my camera for carrying everywhere, everyday. I have been looking for a light camera that could give me excellent pictures, but in a very light weight. After testing about 4 cameras, among Nikons, Canons, finally I bought this camera and I am loving it.

Summary: Die Kamera ist voll der Hit!! Schnell mal ein Foto oder ein Video machen ist praktisch für Jedermann schnell mal gemacht, ohne groß Einzustellen meine ich. Auch ganz nahes fokussieren durch manuellen Fokus (am manuellen Objektivschieber MF einstellen) und einfach Fokus-Taste drücken - Fertig.
D Lux 5 color problems and quality control...but fixed.

Summary: I deleted my 1st review since I now have two D Lux 5's for comparison. Each camera was slightly different from the other. The disparities were two and this is when both cameras were set to factory settings.
Summary: I searched for a long time in order to find an easy to carry alternative for My Nikon D700. Leica D-Lux 5 did a great job there. The picture quality and low light performance is way above the pocket cameras.
Summary: Another semi-professional shooter here. My primary camera is a D700 and I had a Canon S90 for about a year but always hated the controls of the camera. A co-worker recommended the X1 but that's more than I wanted to spend, so the Leica D-Lux 5 was a good compromise.
Summary: I am not as enamored as others about owning a Leica although I know they are famous for their cameras and lenses but this is a german camera manufactured in Japan. There is no real difference between this camera and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 (same lens, hardware etc) with a $400 price difference...
Summary: I have had my D-Lux 5 for just a few days now, and I am delighted with my choice. It's all that I expected and more. Build quality is superb (as expected), picture quality is excellent, and there's even more flexibility and features than I had imagined. Definitely a winner!
