Yes with no problems. Same item except for the Leica logo and price... I switch the viewfinder between my GF1 and the D-Lux 5.
Is Leica D-Lux 5 software compatible with Mac? Is the software for the Leica fully compatible with the Mac? Mar 10, 2011
Yes, mac will give you a preview of the Leica RAW format. As for RAW adjustments, use the third party software included with the camera (Lightroom).
It is not easy to find a side with pictures to compare these cameras. I woud say, go into a shop and make some pictures with these two cameras and compare them. My camera is the d-lux 5. I made some pictures without any light, I mean, I saw nothing in the room. This extremly picture with the camera and tripod was ok. You can compare the deteils on the leica side, where you can download the pdf-s. Here are two links: The d-lux 6 has a nice depth of focus http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1177155/0 The pictures form the d-lux 5 are also well. https://www.flickr.com/photos/adowomac/5550269587/in/set-72157625657832783/ Compare the picture borders, but you will not see any differences. In my opinion, the d-lux 6 pictures are a bit shaper in depth of focus.
D-LUX 5 is still listed on the Leica website as a current model. I suggest that unless it is offered to you much cheaper than D-LUX 6, the later model offers useful improvements (faster lens for example) for very little additional cost.
Why would the D-Lux 5 sell for more than the D-Lux -6?? Is there something I don't know?? Jun 1, 2013
Can't answer because I don't have a DLux6, but I have a DLux 5s. This is a near perfect camera. The photos are amazingly sharp and balance dright out of the camera. You get great pictures without really trying, but if you work at it, they are hard to distinguish between a big SLR. The camera is great for low light and for close ups. It's also small and has a great feel in your hands.
This may seem an odd question so don't yell, does this camera have a internal view finder? Feb 12, 2015
No it doesn't
How do you turn off the square format? I have no idea how it got turned on, and I have gone through every single menu option ten times. Help! Oct 27, 2014
I think the square format is the default format. I'm not sure that you can turn it off, apart from using the wide format. Near the ring where the lens attaches to the body, is a lever you can use to change from square to rectangle format. Unfortunately, that also reduces the number of pics for a given chip. Hope this helps.
