Summary: It's a Leica. You don't really compare Leicas to anything else since you can rarely justify the premium price on Leicas. If you are looking for functionality and specs, you can always opt for the less pricier but otherwise same Panasonic, and I assume that much more technology can be available for much less nowadays.
Summary: The picture quality of this light weight compact camera is second to none. You won't be disappointed with Leica optics. I would recommend using the wrist strap when holding or shooting as the camera body is small & delicate. I purchased the titanium model.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
