Summary: I purchased a Leica VLUX 2 during a recent cruise. I loved the way it felt in my hand and the ease of use. I recently used it during a recent concert for both photography and to take hi-def videos of the band's performance. The HD video was easy to use and the final product I posted on YouTube has received a lot of positive feedback.
Summary: I am an amateur photographer with a Nikon D40 and a 5000models. I just got the Leica 18393-V Lux 2. As soon I got to hold the camera, I knew this was going to beat my Nikon. Then I shot sample pics and downloaded to Picasa. Simply mind boggling clarity,saturation pics. I would highly recommend this one to any one out there. Easy,simple operation and a great one to carry(So light). My NIKONS went to rest for some period of time. R.K.Pudupakkam.M.D.
Summary: This is my second Leica camera, I have a Dlux 4. I don't know if I can be naif in saying that the pictures that I have taken with this camera are amazing. I know that many people would say, why didn't you buy the panasonic FZ100? Well, that was my first choice, but living in a country where the price of these cameras are prohibitive, I had to buy in a trip abroad. The camera shop didn't have the panasonic then, I thought it was a good chance to buy a Leica, so I did it!!
Summary: I just got this camera and I love it. It is very fast when you want to take pictures quickly (turn off the picture review), and it saves even 12meg pix with very little lag. The photos are clear and crisp with no noise. Its light and easy enough to use, altho there are perhaps too many options for me to choose from, and that gets confusing fairly quickly. While the basic choices are the same as most cameras, the further you go into the feature set the more you can do.
Summary: I received this camera for Christmas from my Husband. For a one size fits all digital camera you will be hard pressed to find something better. The 24x zoom and full HD video makes this a perfect family camera. The burst feature which takes 11 fps at 14.1 mp is great for taking pictures of kids who don't always cooperate. Much has been made about about the similarities to the Panasonic FMZ 100.
Excerpt: Wem eine DSLR-Ausrüstung zu schwer und aufwändig ist und außerdem eine schnelle Aufnahmebereitschaft liebt, macht mit der "Leica V-Lux 2" einen guten Kauf. Ich fotografiere mit Spitzen-Systemen von Leica und Canon, habe nun jedoch meist die "Leica V-Lux 2" dabei. Mein Fazit, unbeschwert hervorragende Fotos.
Excerpt: Wer mit leichtem Gepäck reisen möchte, dem sei die Leica V-Lux 2 uneingeschränkt empfohlen. Sie ist schnell und mit einem Brennweitenbereich (25 - 600mm) ausgestattet, der keine Wünsche offenläßt. Die Bildqualität ist für eine Kamera dieser Kategorie sehr gut. (Bitte die mitgelieferte Gegenlichtblende verwenden).
Excerpt: kein schrauben und schleppen von Objektiven notwendig, denn der all-rounder hat alles wichtige dabei. Ich bin begeistert von der Kamera, auch wenn sie eine Profikamera nicht ersetzen kann und will.
