Summary: WOW. MORE THAN I EVER IMAGINED. I had always been a big fan of my Canon D3200 and 5000, and never considered a "point and shoot." I'm a weekend photographer--never taken a class, but always the one with the camera at family functions, vacations, and love updating photos on Facebook, etc.
Summary: Both camera are, for their genre, quite capable.While the Panasonic version of this shooter possesses almost all of the features found in the Leica version, three differences stand out which, to me, favor the Leica and support its significantly higher price: the 3-year warranty, the inclusion of...
Summary: When I first opened, it showed vertical lines and is flashing. Flickering. Initially I thought there's a warm up period. But when I started taking pictures, the lines and pink colors also appear on the image taken. I took the camera to Leica at Soho, NY, and they said this operation is not normal.

Excerpt: Stunning, sharp, images and usable files up to ISO 3200! Yes, you can go to ISO 6400 but the files get a bit noisy and need some extra post processing work. It is not exactly 'pocketable', but it will easily fit in most coat pockets.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: well I was not able to put a review up on the Leica site, has to go on the Panasonic site, so I guess it is the Panasonic type 109. in any event, I traveled to Brasil for an extended stay and left my Ricoh GR home, always my main camera.
Excerpt: An overall well-rounded performer! I've taken some pretty good pics in only 3 weeks of owning it. Plenty of upgrades abound from wi-fi to a Four-Thirds sensor to internal viewfinder to the manual functions on top, this is quite an upgrade from my D-Lux 6.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution
Summary: yes. im finally giving up my dslr with heavy L prime lenses for 90% of my shooting. the fit, finish, features, interface, colors and image quality are just awesome. nothing more to say. just try it and youll get one - of of corse, it is most definately not made in china.
