Unique

cam korda "cam", Amazon
24 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought mine three or four years ago. A dead sensor was replaced and the camera was as new. Most cameras are pretty forgettable. This is one that I keep coming back to, that I miss after a period of non-use. It can produce, one after the other, the most beautiful images. I use it often for still objects, indoors, under natural light. Straight out of the camera, the images have a unique look, often needing little or no post-processing at all.

A Decade Later- It Reigns

Carlton D. Garrard, Amazon
20 September 2013
  • Summary: I've written extensively on this camera and the digilux 2 online on my own blog. This camera and the digilux 2 are considered true classic cameras, and a decade later they still do not dissapoint the discerning photographer who embraces the foundation of principles and fundamentals that make photography a rewarding experience. This camera design is truly unique- one of a kind.

CLASSIC CAMERA

rs73ca, Ebay
12 February 2011
  • Summary: I was one of the first to buy this model when it came out years ago. It was reviewed well when new. It is identical to the Leica Digilux 2 and the Leica lens is awesome. As the years went by and newer technology was introduced, this camera has become a classic. Some of the best digital photography I have EVER done is with this camera. Even though the sensor has a low megapixel count, it takes gorgeous photos.

Very good camera

fotohameleon, Ebay
1 June 2006
  • Summary: I like: 1) Leica vario summicron lense; 2) built in quality and metal body; 3) comfort in use; 4) very good display (much much better and bigger than Canon EOS 20D); 5) good for portrait. I dislike: 1) with such lense, camera should be at less 8mpix ;) unfortunately, at A4 format picture not so good, than with SLR camera with good lenses. 2) slow and stupid auto focus.

A classic

CyberDad, Amazon
20 January 2006
  • Summary: I've had this camera for about two years. Having cut my photographic teeth on an old SLR, I am familiar with manually manipulating lenses, dials, and so forth. I've owned several digital cameras from various manufacturers, and I usually end up shooting in "program" mode because digging through all the menu choices to set up a shot often means that I've lost the shot.

Best digicam I've ever used.

mikelew, epinions.com
20 April 2005
  • Summary: This is a good buy if you need control over settings. A bad buy if you need point and shoot ease.
  • Pros: Optics are among the sharpest I've ever used. Comparable to Nikon and Contax.
  • Cons: You need to buy more memory and an extra battery.

One (two) of a kind...

Anthony C, Amazon
2 January 2005
  • Summary: So here's the scenario that led me to purchase this camera. After years of photography with a Contax RTS II system, I dropped photography almost completely for 10+ years. The problem? Enjoying the medium without the expense, overly complex process and lugging around 18 lbs of equipment. So I recently started to look at digital photography to completely replace my film equipment. I didn't want an SLR because a)while $1200 buy's a 20oz.

Cheaper, But Still Superb Leica Digilux Sibling

John Kwok, Amazon
30 December 2004
  • Summary: The Panasonic DMC-LC1 reminds me of an overgrown Contax G2 autofocus 35mm film rangefinder camera and handles nearly as well as its more expensive sibling, the Leica Digilux 2. Panasonic and Leica have joined forces to create a line of digital cameras, of which this camera and the Leica Digilux 2 comprise a second generation. The Panasonic DMC-LC1 is very easy to use and the picture quality is superb, thanks to its new Vario-Summicron lens.
