Mini Leica for the Knowledgeable Photographer,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Leica D-Lux 4 Digital Camera (Black) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I am a semi professional photographer who has always been a supporter of Leica. This new version of the Leica is even a kick for those who have an M-8 but want a quality, wide angle capable, and fully adjustable mini Leica to carry everywhere. In it's 'standard black and white' mode it is uncanny how the images have the "Leica feel". The "Leica feel", for those who don't know, is the unique feel and image quality that you can only understand if you have used a Leica for many years. This camera is terrific in available light. There is very little vibration from the shutter. This is aided by vibration reduction, but is more obvious here than in other cameras with VR. There is some distortion in the most wide angle images but if you are careful with how you shoot it's not any problem.
Over all this is a wonderful, but expensive toy for more serious photographers.
