I hardly ever write product reviews - just restaurants. I am making an exception for this camera!

I waited quite some time to get a Leica. Some of the comments in one of the thread questions that are going on right now are insane. I am sure some of you agree...we can go on comparing products over and over until we die, so why not make some of these comparisons based off what the people have to say that actually own the item, not from just reading the nonsense people have to say when they haven't even touched the product.

Well, with that being said...so maybe some of us want the little red Leica logo on the camera, or some of us just don't care. I am in the middle. I like Leica and their technology. Their design is clean and simple, and since this is my first time owning a Leica - I am proud to show the logo.

The V-Lux 40 is an amazing little machine. I sold my Nikon D90 with three lenses, so I could buy this camera. When I found out that the zoom is better than the Nikon 70-300mm lens I had [that cost $650, whole Leica cost $700] - I couldn't help myself to find out how and why this compact point & shoot camera could do all this and more. I live in New York, and I love taking photos of buildings and architecture - the zoom is unbelievable! I am getting specific detail on beautiful old buildings with a BETTER range than the DSLR. When they say 20x optical zoom - that is what it means - and it means it adds up to 480mm.

To be honest - I would've never bought the V-Lux 40 if I wasn't able to test it out first. I was able to do so by visiting the Leica Gallery here in NYC. I was able to try all the options and learn as much as I could by having a very informational specialist help me do so.

Just got my wife a v-lux 40 and I agree that it is a phenomenal piece of equipment, far and away the best point and shoot I have ever seen. It has feature not found on any other! BUT a point and shoot will never replace a dslr! Never! If you are a professional photographer you need the viewing feature of TTL. In my work I shoot Nikons. I wish I could afford the Leica S2 dslr, but at $23,000.00 for the body alone, it's not really feasible for me at this point. For the typical snapshot needs a P&S makes perfect sense. Carrying a big bulky DSLR is almost like having a baby with you. They are heavy and cumbersome but they serve a very specific purpose. You don't need a sledge hammer to drive a tack, but on the other hand ya can't drive a spike with a tack hammer. Ron
P.S. to the girls that screamed do not buy this camera ours came with everything including the battery charger and warranty card and all the rest. You must have been a victim of an unfortunate packing error.

Now I can take picture much faster than the previous model. Zoom faster and focus much faster. I just go everywhere with it now.

well after wading through many reviews of the compact digitals that are available i selected v-lux 40 as a replacement for my canon g7 that failed to power on after 7 years and many great photos.i wasn't particularily price sensitive as much as wanting the most compact camera available with features condusive to use as easily carried daily use/travel camera. the ability to put it in a shirt or pants pocket can't be overstated as far as i'm concerned.the build quality is great, it feels substantial for it's size. and feels quite natural when shooting or at least it does for me. i've had the v40 for a couple of weeks now and most of material shot was just checking out the operation in various lighting situations. i never use a flash so the ability to turn that off with out it defaulting to auto as the g7 did is nice. the 20x optical zoom provides a great range of composition options. the performance in low light conditions is simply amazing. menus for the myrid of selectable options that are available is quite straight forward and easily understood without resorting to the full explanition of everything in the 198 page instruction manual. i've taken to putting the pdf of this sort os stuff on a disc and printing a spiral bound regular sized document that is actually useable when the need arises. i considered the similar sony product but was put off by the configuration of the flash and i didn't forsee the need for 20mil pixels of resolution with how i intend to use the camera. i'm anxious to see if the full hi-def video generated will make my current canon vixia hfs 11 obselete, right now i'm thinking not. whats up with the ridiculous amount of internal memory that has the capability of storing only a few photos and certainly no video ?Read more ›

I bought this to replace a small point n shoot that was disappointing in its limitations. This camera is very powerful in both its capacity for producing excellent images and providing the user with extraordinary control of all the functions needed to capture quality shots. Out performs every pocket camera I have seen. Before buying this camera, I did a lot of research on its Panosonic version. I can't prove it by experience (I am not rich enough to buy both), but based on the research, I'd say the Leica is worth the cost.
