Great little camera if you want to step up your photographic game

  • Summary: I have had the D-Lux for about a month now. If you search on this camera you will find plenty of reviews that list the technical data, so it doesn't add much value for me to simply repeat it. Instead, I'll report what it is like for me to use this camera. I am a hobbyist, but I shoot a lot of pictures. My previous camera was a Canon S95 PowerShot, probably the third PowerShot I had.

Best Leica compact digital camera ever!

Phbug, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I have and have had a number of the small Leica compact digital cameras over time, and this is by far the most professional-feeling and performing of them all. My earlier Leica compact cameras all worked well, but were lightweights by comparison to the new Leica D-Lux (I also have the original 2003 Leica D-Lux as well as others). I only wish the optical zoom range were greater, but this is normally not a problem.

Great!

  • Summary: Nine aperture blades, no fidgety P-A-S-M wheel, traditional top plate controls for exposure compensation and shutter speed, clicky aperture dial on AF lens in 1/3 stop increments, f1.7, multi-aspect 4/3s sensor. All the elements of a traditional camera in a compact size with Leica logo. I LOVE THIS CAMERA!

A good camera with a large image sensor...

Stann, Amazon
7 February 2015
  • Summary: This Leica D-Lux offers identical imaging to the Panasonic LX100 premium compact. Its design differs slightly however. Pros: Large image sensor. Wide aperture zoom lens. Sharp EVF. Excellent high ISO performance. Speedy autofocus. 11.3fps burst shooting. Excellent control layout. 4K video capture. 4K photo mode. Hot shoe. Wi-Fi. Cons: Expensive. Bulky. Overactive video autofocus. Sensor resolution limits detail. No built-in flash. Rear LCD picks up scratches easily.

Captain Don, DP Review

  • Excerpt: It is significantly easier to use. Switching between Auto, P, S, A & M modes is a "no-brainer". The F button for switching between the Auto and any other modes makes spur of the moment change instantaneous. The LCD screen is much clearer. The digital view finder is a real improvement for composition and outdoor photography particularly in sunlight.

Great compact digital camera

  • Summary: Great compact digital camera. I added the leica grip and a newer thumb grip to improve the handling. With an aperature ring and shutter speed knob, the camera is much more intuitive and is more like a film camera Image quality is good so far in my tests.Going to semi-retire my DSLR cameras.

DOA...Diopter Wheel Broken!

RML, Amazon
17 December 2014
  • Summary: DOA...Diopter was free wheeling. It didn't work so the EVF was useless and I immediately returned the camera. After I returned it, I noticed the same problem in a review on the LX100 so this could be an issue with the camera.

***Best Portable Camera To Date :)

Cody Robinson, Amazon
12 December 2014
  • Summary: After much trial and error research I decided to pull the trigger & buy the Leica Typ 109. After using the Panasonic LX100 & Sony M3 I wanted a portable powerhouse camera with a sleek design to complement my EM1. The Leica Typ 109 even though a clone of the Panasonic LX100 has much more to offer. A stellar design, an included free dl of lightroom, 3 year warranty, & different firmware that adds the IT factor to your photos.

Tremendous

Thomas M. Joseph, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: The Leica DLux is one of the best compact cameras I've used. It is not simply a relabeled Panasonic - which is also tremendous. Leica and Panasonic collaborate on many aspects of camera development, and this DLUX, is the best of both worlds. The Leica will give you a much higher resale value and some other goodies. I have owned the Leica X1, X2, and currently have the new X. I have also owned the Fuji X100 and X100s.

l_objectif, DP Review
27 November 2014
  • Excerpt: After owning D-Lux 3, 4 and 5, I was hoping, like many others, for D-Lux 6 to have a 1" sensor as it was being rumored so many times. But I was very disappointed when DL 6 was announced with the same small sensor; and, as I did not find much improvement from DL5, I did not upgrade to "6"! I was hoping for a portable with a bigger sensor and the MFT system started appearing to me more and more interesting, although not so "Portable"!
