Summary: While it is nice to have a camera that is capable of anything, when it gets down to it most of us rarely use the full range of features available on modern digital cameras. If you shoot a lot of sports, really need different lenses for different situations, then this is not the camera for you. If you need 24 megapixels because you blow your shots up wall size then get a camera that will do that.
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).
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..
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.
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.
