Super simple with great photos for the long range shots w/o the hassle of true telephoto lenses

G. E. Conner, Amazon
13 December 2013
  • Summary: I am no camera buff but even I get good photos with this camera. I had purchased it for wildlife photography only to find out that it does have shutter noise. At ranges of 50 feet or so, you are not going to get a second shot at a deer or other spooky animals.

6 Years After It Was Announced

Carlton D. Garrard, Amazon
17 August 2012
  • Summary: This camera is still an excellent imaging device. Getting them used in near new condition isn't easy, but a lot cheaper than when they first came out. Compared to the Panasonic version- the improved exterior finish, Jpeg engine, aesthetics, and Leica service/warranty is worth the extra you'll pay for this camera today. Having a 35-420mm f/2.8-f3.7 internal zooming optic is unheard of in digital or analog imaging products (read again, the zoom is internal).

A Bargain Leica does Exist?

Peptostrep, Amazon
6 November 2011
  • Summary: This camera was my first entry into the digital Leica world after several decades of being a Leica M film user. I was not disappointed with this camera in terms of picture quality and ease of use. It is not built like the Leica M cameras, but it doesn't need that extra weight and solid metal ruggedness. This is a camera you can take anywhere and not worry about what may happen to it. The Panasonic - Leica relationship is a good thing..

Nice camera with manual zoom

Tplbogey, Amazon
19 October 2011
  • Summary: Bought it second-hand and took it to a trip immediately. Amazingly light-weight and easy to use. I like manual zoom more than electric zoom, for obvious reason. Photos were sharp and colour natural. The battery that came with the camera did not hold long, possibly too old, and extra batteries are required. Overall, a reliable camera with a brand name that guarantees quality.

UPDATE -It is EXACTLY what I want in a Camera

Bill Cole, Amazon
10 September 2010
  • Summary: I've used this camera for over 2 years now & it is everything I want in a camera I go hiking & didn't want a camera with lens interchangeability. The 35mm-420mm is everything I want & the photos that I've taken are razor sharp. AUDIO RECORDING - a MUST have feature: I especially like the 5 second audio recording capability; immediately AFTER pushing the shutter release, I can say "something" for 5 seconds - the direction I'm looking, names of people in the photo, etc.

I've had it for over two years and it's still going

Robert B. Hess, Amazon
28 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera on Amazon and though pricey it was a good purchase. The camera takes such good pictures. I've used it for a lot of different situations and the pictures are always great. I've also got a Sony with the Zeiss lens and it's pictures are water colors compared to the ones the Leica put out. I've had the camera for over two years and haven't had any problems with it.

great photos

D. Dolan "dvdvija", Amazon
29 August 2009
  • Summary: I just got this camera V lux-1 few days ago. As soon I received the package, I was very excited and used the camera right away. As of now, I am testing Auto mode with different type of scenes. I have tested indoor scenes using no flash and was very amazed with the quality of the natural colors and contrast of light. The light temperature was very good, just like real natural scenes. I found the focusing speed was fast enough to capture my young restless kids.

Leica V-lux

Haris Wijayasiri, Amazon
31 July 2009
  • Summary: The camera came without the lens hood and the patch cables. These items cost over $100. I am dissatisfied with the vendor. I paid the market price for the camera.
