*Value for money, is a hard category to review. Nowadays you can get a like new LC1 from 500-1200 dollars. I had to rate based on the price I purchased it for (my 2nd one that is). *If you are a camera collector, be wary of the serial number as a series of these cameras had failing Sony sensors that Panasonic no longer fixes for free. Leica will with there version I do believe. Review: There is simply no digicam like this one anywhere, bar the Digilux 2. You'll have to be the type of ...

I believe I am one of the last people to buy this amazing camera in Turkey. It looked weird to spend a beginner DSLR-range price to a 5MP dinosaur. But the camera looked like a camera! It looked so beautiful and eloquent. This is a REAL camera. Aperture ring? in digital? just caught back up with '70s:) Image Quality, the reason why we spend at all on these babies. Just great. It blows away my 8MP eos350d-which is a real nice piece in itself- this camera has one of the lowest pixel ...

I have had my LC1 for about a year and a half and bought the camera used on Ebay of all places. However, it looks to have been well cared for, has no major scratches and is clean and fully functional. I personally love this camera: I am entranced with the retro look and feel and naturally took to using the camera immediately being a film SLR user for years. The best thing about the camera is of course the Leica glass. I have made prints up to 13X19 with an Epson printer and find the prints ...

Bought a mint ex-display LC1 in Malaysia 2 weeks ago for USD 350, out of curiousty and intrique by the infamous Leica lens quality and also the retro look /manual operation like the camera of the good old days. Under good lighting, this camera outdone my Pentax K10D with DA14f2.8, Tamron 18-250 & FA35f2! I read somewhere the Leica 28-90 f2-f2.4 Vario Summicron is the best Leica multifocal lens ever made! Now I am having trouble finding Pentax lens that come close to this Leica.LC1 prodoces ...

I started with a Leica Digilux 2 and loved it. But it had to go back to the factory to get the Sony sensor replaced. While it was gone, I missed the analog action of the camera so much that I found a used LC1 and bought it. It and its Leica brother, take such clear, sharp pictures. The lens is one of (if not the) best lenses Leica ever made. It feels like a camera. It works like a camera. It makes me forget that I’m in the digital world. While only at 5 mp, it produces shots every bit ...

Having used good Nikons SLR for 30+ years moving to digital and what to get has proved a hurdle. I toyed with a brilliant Sony digital with Carl Zeiss lens for a couple of years but I longed for the simplistic feel of an SLR. But I didn’t want the weight and restrictions with expensive SLR’s which didn’t have Video capabilities and a viewfinder . This DP review site was fantastic and eventually I decided on the DMC LC1. V Easy to operate as its just like an SLR and 2 years down the line with ...

Had this camera 1 year and very little to complain about and so much to praise. If you want a camera that produces beautiful, warm, colourful shots you will never be disappointed. It is so easy to use and very intuiate. The lens is a remarkable piece of engineering, it would cost a fortune on any SLR and makes this beautiful camera worth every penny. I tested this against a Nikon70 and Canon 350 and the image quality left these very good cameras in its wake, dispite its low 4.9megp. Problems: ...

It is much better then the FZ-50. Mainly the lens (chromatic abberation) and less ensor noise. Problems: My LC1 had the CCD failure. It was repaired at no cost by the Panasonic importer in The Netherlands, although I had no warranty since I bought the LC1 2 years ago in China.

I finally hadto chime in regarding this camera. I've used the Panasonic DMC-LC1 for almost 2 years and have never been disappointed with the results. There is something magic with this lens / sensor combintaion. The warmth, the contrast (depth in colors), crispness, etc. can only be appreciated when viewing images at 100%. Even against my Canon 5D or 1D Mark II N (with L glass). The body feels right in your hands: Solid construction, nice grip. The controls remind you of what you've ...
