It's kind of tricky to rate this camera in todays' terms. It's cheap now, so if you want an old cheap digileica then you can choose over this one with the zoom, or the fixed length one. This one's images look fine and appear quite deep. The colours are great out-of-cam. Sharpness is fine. The cameras' performance is quite good, especially for that era (year 2000). Under-exposing by 0.3 or 0.6 seems to be a good idea when sunlight is around. Flash is good. I recommend a mild NR-sheen in ...

I have had the digilux zoom for about 3 years and was quite content with it. After using it for a while you know what you can and especially what you can't do with it. I have taken lots of pictures with it and found it to be a good camera to start with.The macro function with aid of the digital zoom, gives quite good close ups! Lots of examples are viewable at http://www.student.tue.nl/t/m.p.a.geers/plaatjes_frame.htm Please note that these aren't the original pictures, but scaled down ones ...

I had this camera for over two years and it has served me very well. Shot thousands of pictures with excellent colour rendition. Leica managed to repackage the rather blaw Fuji design into a real Leica looking quality. Controls are easy and always work. Wish you would have an updated model. Problems: It is now obsolete. Hope the new Digilux will serve as well.

It has been able to with stand hot humid conditions in Hong Kong night clubs...to the high alpine wilderness of Tibet and back country treks of mountainess New Zealand. Ever faithful...aprt fom the odd shutter jam...always recharges quickly and effortless download to PowerBook...for posting on the web. www.e.co.nz/tibet/people ...and all my images at www.e.co.nz ...

I have several Leica cameras and expected the same quality from this one, in partcular with the optics. It falls well short. While the outside images are adequate, the inside images leave much to be desired. I bought this for the lens and image quality, and they were no better than average. Other Leica cameras give life to the photo with vibrant colors and sharp forms. This camera didn't even muster this in the outdoors let alone indoors, and the price was much more than your average ...

Very good camera. I would never replace it with another small DC. Small, very easy to use and fantastic image quality. Vivid colours, good AF, easy to use. Problems: Sometimes the lens cover doesn?t close due to dust. Never had to take it for service though.

The first DC I owned that was fairly easy to operate. Bought it from B&H for a fair price. Ergonomics of the Leica Digilux Zoom is just great and I am always proud to have it with me wherever I go. Problems: This is not a suitable DC for people with big hands. I am always worried that I will accidentally drop it one day. Guess it would have been better if it came with a neck strap instead of a wrist strap. Shutter started getting sticky after 6 months of use. Mode dial and the zoom control ...
