I'm considering selling my dslr and copping a Leica D-Lux 4. I just wanted to get peoples opinions about the camera if anyones used it. I don't really use my camera too much anymore since it's a hassle lugging it around so I wanted to go with something a little smaller.
Anyone have the D-lux 4? Like it? Hate it? Hows the HD video? Anyone think theres a better camera out there?

No m series, no care.

just playing.


I dont think this is meant to be a replacement, rather something to take on vacation and on the street.

all I do is sip espressos and listen to AZ -mrelllis.tumblr.com

i have an earlier Dlux.. maybe a 2? idk, its 5 or 6 megapixels. its definitely nice, at the time the quality was on par with a bunch of DSLRs that were out. It just lacks the flexibility of an slr

every entry level dslr it's better IMO , considering the price . I was searching on ebay for a d-lux3 or a lumix dmc-lx3 (it's the same) as a side camera for short vacations (when I can't take my dslr with me) but they are way overpriced for a point&shoot/bridge camera .
If I had to buy a full manual bridge camera I'd go for a powershot G9 or G10 , price is good and the quality is cool

I think the pentax I10 is good too , for 170 € you got manual focus/exp and HD recording .

I went to Europe with my buddy last summer, and that's the camera he used. The image quality was okay. In the end he sold it and bought a Canon s90.

A dslr and Leica like this one would be used for two different purposes in a way. I personally would use a smaller camera like the Leica on vacation or just when I don't feel like carrying around a bigger camera and don't care too much about taking photos in greater detail and whatnot. Although I'd probably choose an S90 as said above. I've seen pictures a friend took on one of these though, the quality isn't bad at all. I'd say it's all personal preference.

well thats the thing, I don't want to carry around a DSLR all the time so thats the reason I want the Leica. On the plus side the image quality isn't bad at all. Comparing some pictures shot with the dlux 4 and some DSLRS, I've seen better leica ones. The pictures in that site you just posted vector just won me over. Those pictures are freakin amazing

Although I've heard that the panasonic is the same exactly camera, the Leica just looks better. Id like to have my camera looking aesthetically pleasing. I don't mind spending a few extra bones for a fancier look.

Macro, hd recording and awesome quality of pictures. I don't see any huge negatives.

lumix GF1 w/ a 20mm @$800. light and small, records in HD, and if you ever wanted to swamp lenses down the future, you can. BUT not as sexy looking as a lecia

if you got an m9 youd be retarded
if you got an x1 youd be not as retarded but still pretty up there.

is it that important to spend that much money so you can get that extra bump in quality for the pictures your just gonna end up uploading on flickr? i know none of you are going to be making 40x50 prints for your art installations and shit with these. spending anything over 7-800 for a digital point and shoot imo = idiot.

why buy a ferrari when a tuned evo is just as fast?

why buy an omega when a timex is just as (if not more) accurate?

it's hardly a fashion statement. it's more along the lines of personal satisfaction. many appreciate leica's rich history, manufacturing process, top notch image/build quality, and its exclusivity.

people who appreciate leica's history dont get an m9. they get an m7. even annie lebovitz probably isnt goofy enough to buy an m9.
