Has any one heard about Leica providing an update to the firmware for the D-Lux2 to handle HDSC feature? Anyway, Casio Exilim has done it. Read in DPreview: Casio has released updated firmware for its Exilim EX-Z70 and EX-Z700 digital camera to support SDHC. Danke schoen Leica.

As much as I enjoy using this camera, there are some flaws that I find quite annoying. While the images at low ISO ratings are outstanding, I find anything above 200 (or even 100) to be far too noisy for a camera of this price. The autofocus is usually too slow, particularly in anything but decent light. There is a very bad shutter lag, so don't expect too much spontaneity. And, while everyone seems to be lauding the build quality, I have to question it. I find the camera a bit too ...

Bought a D-Lux 2 at B&H in NYC due to the compact size of a 28mm wide lens camera (I am an architect). Coming back to Brazil I discovered that my extra original battery does not work. Sent email to Germany to solve the problem, no answer until now. Am going to Berlin next week, sent this info to Leica but no answer . Pictures are not convincing to a famous lens/camera maker. Must admit Sony T30, H1 and R1 give better same photos. Former Nikon F2 user, 8400 has too much shutter lag. To avoid ...

Just use noise reduction software like NeatImage for images that need it. The ScreenShade might make your display more useful in bright sunlight: http://www.screen-shade.com/parscreenfor.html

This camera takes 7 seconds (an eternity) to save a RAW + JPG file after each shot. Problems: 1. LCD not as bright as necessary to compose frame under daylight. 2. No viewfinder.

If you want to seee just how bad this camera actually is, then go to Leica's own website and download the two photographers they have on there site taken by a proffessional photographer at 100ASA. View them at 100% to see just how much noise & lack of fine detail there is. Problems: Having had a week test with this camera I found that the build quality and features are great. It is such a same the Leica dicided to use a Panasonic sensor which is known to be such a low quality option on this ...

What I like: - The features (16:9, shake-killer, etc.) - The design is very minimal (that's good) and has a great feel to it (almost Apple-like feel). - The LCD is amazing. Problems: What I hate: - The extreme amount of noise/purple fringing, etc. It even creates noise in daylight. This is not to be expected with a camera in this price area. I had an Ixus 40 before this, and I took the exact same image with same settings, light and everything. The Ixus generated very little noise. The D-LUX 2 ...
