This is an everyday camera great for family photography!

  • Summary: This is a great four-thirds digital SLR camera that produces stunning images. I bought it because it can take the Panasonic - Leica 14-50mm zoom lens and the Olympus Macro 35 mm lens among many other lenses. The size is perfect -- not too big and not too small. It is light weight as well.

  • Summary: I bought a used body for the specific purpose of using my numnerous old OM1 lenses on a reasonably sized format digital camera. I find that I dont need more than 7.5 megs. Most of the time I am using much lower size pics. I paid 200 which was very good value for money.

Known problem with the 14-50 Leica lens

Tandy K. Bozeman, Amazon
26 December 2008
  • Summary: This is a great camera with a stunning tack-sharp lens. That said, many owners on the Leica forum have reported a problem with the 14-50 lens that comes on the camera. The lens sometime comes with, or later develops, the problem of binding of the zoom function, which after time locks up completely...

  • Summary: When this camera was introduced I knew I wanted one. The look and feature set just appealed to me. Finally I got one. It is not a perfect camera for everyone, but get your hands on one and it speaks for itself.

Poor lowlight performance, great for landscapes!

  • Summary: I bought this camera when Amazon had them for $799. I thought it would be a good camera to re-familiarize myself with manual controls and a higher degree of involvement with photography. I was also in love with the design and layout of the controls and the body.

Panasonic DMC_L1

Richard Foley, Amazon
23 December 2007
  • Summary: I preface this review with the note that I am a professional photographer of some 37 years. I have used nearly every camera from sub-miniature to 11x14 view cameras. I liked this camera for the past year but was hesitant to purchase it because of the price.

Fantastic retro-camera with some of negative features

moonofsoul, Ebay
8 August 2007
  • Summary: It's a 7.5 megapixels digital single lens reflex camera with Live View feature and fantastic analogue like control. the Leica 'kit' lens is awesome, the Mega Optical Stabilizer works fine. Unfortunately it's only three focus point, and the viewfinder is dark and small.

A pleasent surprise - DMC-L1

V. D. Cone, Amazon
11 June 2007
  • Summary: Although I thought this "four thirds" camera might be a little smaller than it is, I am very pleased with the ease of use and the quality of the images. It is simple to use and controls are in logical locations.
