Excerpt: Having this camera, was a love and hate relationship. This camera is lightweight easy-to-use. I purchased this camera because the easy manual operation. Remind me of the old Nikon film camera. It was obsolete soon as it was purchase. The camera came out at a worse time.
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.

Excerpt: I believe I am one of the last people to buy this amazing camera in Turkey. It looked weird to spend a beginner DSLR-range price to a 5MP dinosaur. But the camera looked like a camera! It looked so beautiful and eloquent. This is a REAL camera. Aperture ring? in digital?

Excerpt: Bought a mint ex-display LC1 in Malaysia 2 weeks ago for USD 350, out of curiousty and intrique by the infamous Leica lens quality and also the retro look /manual operation like the camera of the good old days.
Excerpt: I started with a Leica Digilux 2 and loved it. But it had to go back to the factory to get the Sony sensor replaced. While it was gone, I missed the analog action of the camera so much that I found a used LC1 and bought it. It and its Leica brother, take such clear, sharp pictures.
Excerpt: Having used good Nikons SLR for 30+ years moving to digital and what to get has proved a hurdle. I toyed with a brilliant Sony digital with Carl Zeiss lens for a couple of years but I longed for the simplistic feel of an SLR.
Excerpt: Had this camera 1 year and very little to complain about and so much to praise. If you want a camera that produces beautiful, warm, colourful shots you will never be disappointed. It is so easy to use and very intuiate.
