Summary: It is a nice camera, but does not justify the price even for the low price you pay on e-bay, My newer sony which I bought cheaper brand new takes better pictures in the low light. Leica is definitely better in day light use. Also the battery drains out so fast that you need to carry extra 1 or two with you, as without warning the low battery light starts blinking, especially if you are using the flash, even a little bit. You are paying for the name as I did.
Summary: Hmmm, ' AMAZON, I dont get it. How can a Leica digital camera, ( the Digilux 3) that I bought a year ago go from $1,200 go to $3999.????? It has good ratings, but not great. It is not a collectors item. I think it is not a bad camera for 7.5 MP but my Nikon D-90, new at the same price,is the same price new, and much better, I say that mindfully as I love Leicas.. well... you'd expect a bit more from a Leica.
Summary: This is a vey nice dSLR; there are provisions for manual controls that make the camera feel like a film camera. The lens is the same as on the Leica Digilux3, and is superb. Reliability of the lens is another story. Many, including mine, have an internal part that breaks and this results in mechanically blocking the zoom to a range of 14-18. Repair efforts are futile - search the web. An almost-great camera. It is great if you are lucky.
Summary: Quizas por tener leica desde hace mas de 45 años me olvido lo que cuesta incluso los dos ultimos modelos que tengo digilux 2 y la 3 , estoy esperando resultados de la feria para ver si puedo llegar a la nueva reflex, que ya he visto algo. Con la que siempre me quedaré sera la 3 , es mas que excelente.
