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

  • 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.

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..

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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

The proof is (not) in the pictures! Disappointing!

S. Paci "Shutterbug", Amazon
18 May 2009
  • Summary: To anyone thinking of buying this camera in 2009 -- there must be better options available than this now 2 1/2 year old model. I tried it because I wanted the 12x zoom, Leica optics, feature set, build quality, etc. but after trying it out over the weekend at the Yankee game and for nature photography (which is what I mostly purchased it for) I was extremely disappointed when I loaded the photos into the computer.
