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: 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.
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.
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.
