Summary: I am not a professional photographer and bought this camera because I've got tired of carrying my reflex and equipment when traveling, but I am not willing to sacrifice picture quality. In my experience, this is a very powerful compact camera that comfortably allows full manual mode which can solve almost any situation, while being extremely good in automatic mode. The lens aperture of 1.4 is fantastic and allows great pictures in low light conditions.

Summary: In no way this camera will ever replace the quality of any decent quality SLR price. The resolution is too low for the cost of the camera. Focusing is very difficult, no control unless you add the viewer which cost half what the camera cost. I was hoping to replace my large SLR camera for this compact camera but there is no way it will, I returned it after a trip.
Summary: The camera itself is lovely, but please be aware that this does NOT come with a license for Adobe Lightroom as implied by other customer reviews and customer FAQs when purchased through 'Another Deal Site'. You can find a similar deal WITH Lightroom from other sites. 'Another Deal Site' is misleading, and likely keeping the Adobe Lightroom licenses to resell separately.
Summary: Love this camera. Best point and shoot I've ever used. Took it on a recent vacation in Italy and got some amazing shots ... and I only used the automatic focus. As I continue to explore other features of the Leica D-Lux 6 I know I'll be able to take even more incredible photographs. This camera costs more than others but I feel the quality is worth the price.
Summary: I wanted to have a camera that I can always carry without having to carry a lot of cargo but that would yet provide me with good quality images. This leica really does the job, and I am still not done with exploring all the possibilities it offers. The one feature I probably like most is the ability to change of capture format ratio: 1:1, 4:3, 16:9 and more. The pictures are crisp and always well exposed.
