Super camera

Brian Feely, Amazon
5 June 2013
  • Summary: I'm delighted with this camera. It has more capabilities in a small package than i expected. Just wish it used the same battery as the Delux 3, so I could use the same batter/charger interchangably. Oh well. Again, great camera. Love the square format.

If you always wanted a Leica....

Casity Christ, Amazon
15 May 2013
  • Summary: If you always wanted a Leica, this is a great entry level camera. I had always wanted one with the classic Leica style. But there was traditionally only the M series which cost a bundle. This has the style and the great picture resolution of a Leica but doesn't cost too much.

The best compact camera

DW "Life is beautiful", Amazon
21 January 2013
  • Summary: Compact. Battery life is OK. Good performance at night where other compact cameras cannot take acceptable pictures. The best camera I ever had. I bought two already, one for myself, one for my friend. No problem for over one year. Definitely recommend this even though I know the new model came out.

Worth every penny !!

Balakrishnan Vasudevan, Amazon
6 January 2013
  • Summary: I've been using this camera for almost 5 months now and have taken more than 2000 snaps - This simply keeps surprising me with the quality of images. I was looking for a point and shoot which would be a back-up for a D-SLR and this perfectly fits the role. When I started using this camera initially, I had problems with the auto focus - I was just not able to get specific items focused in my frame.

Poor build quality

Magnity Interactive Music Buyer, Amazon
6 October 2012
  • Summary: Leicas should not be disposable. This one is made of plastic. I've had two case screws fall out on my DLUX already. The wheel that normally has debossed marking for the settings is essentially a silkscreened label. It's just not up to much. After a year or so of fairly minor use, it's essentially looking a bit tired - and that's with the $140 leather case. I'm getting a Canon for my next little point and shoot, or may even possibly rely on my iPhone.

Would be nice if this camera had a phone built in

Whatever, Amazon
25 September 2012
  • Summary: Then it would be almost as good as my iPhone. The image quality is about the same. Not sure what you all are raving about but this is the nicest Panasonic camera on Amazon.

Great Canera !

Duby Collins, Amazon
16 September 2012
  • Summary: This is my second Leica Dlux-5 and it is near perfect. It is crisp, great in low light, and has great color straight out of the camera without processing. It also looks and feels great. It is incremental from the Dlux 4, but the refinements to the functions and improvements to video make a huge difference. The downside, you pay a numbing penalty for the Leica look and branding when the Panasonic would do just as well.

"True color and best compact camera"

Baby-boy_awesome, CNET
4 September 2012
  • 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.

A little pricey but very good

Massachusetts, Amazon
10 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought this with the EVF1 Viewfinder. This camera makes clear & sharp images and I like the RAW + Fine Jpeg setting. Working with the RAW files in Photoshop CS5 helps. I had a Canon EOS 5d Mark II and that was a great camera but I just got tired of carrying that theft and the extra lenses. With this Leica D-Lux 5 I like the easily changeable aspect ratios, especially the 16:9 & the various COLOR options...
