Leica - Once a great camera company, now going the way of Polaroid.
9 April 2013
Summary: Here's an example of Leica attempting to compete with all other camera manufacturers and still failing. The Leica V-Lux 3 is nothing more than a re-badged Panasonic DMC-FZ150 like L.Gauthier stated in his review. Obviously, the five star reviewers have no idea that this is a Panasonic and what's funnier is that they rave about the fine Leica image quality without even realizing that Panasonic makes the entire camera.
Summary: This camera is identical to the Panasonic FZ150K, also sold on Amazon. The only difference is the almost double the price and some minor included software. Buy theanasonic then, if you really want it, buy the software separately. I purchased the FZ150K from Amazon. Great camera at half the price of this Leica. See my review at the FZ150 page.
