Excerpt: Very nice build and feel with logical control arrangement in most cases. The zoom range gives the "potential" for a one-size-fits-all, do-everything traveller's camera. When the V-Lux 1 hits the exposure correctly, the photos are superb with very natural colour.
Excerpt: Firstly I wholeheartedly agree with the comments made by Veroman about this camera. I bouhgt one last November (2006) and could not wait to get my hands on it. I was sadly disappointed with the picture quality in both jpeg and in RAW mode.
Excerpt: I recently tried the Leica V-Lux 1 before deciding whether or not to purchase one. I took an SD card to my local camera shop, an authorized Leica dealer, and shot RAW at ISO 100, 200 and 400 and shot JPEG tests at 200, 400 and 800. I shot for about 45 minutes, both indoors and out.
Summary: First, the zoom lens needs to be a little wider angle capability. Close-in shots are difficult to make because one cannot zoom out enough. Secondly, the camera is not compatible with the operating system that I use on my computer. It is not designed to be used with the new Microsoft VISTA.
Excerpt: J ai été le possesseur de ce type d appareil . Il correspond à un certain type d attente . Il permet de s alléger en comparaison à un reflex plus lourd . Intérressant mais pas à toutes les focales . Ne soyez pas trop exigeant sur vos tirages papiers surtout si vous photographiez en longue focales .
