We've been digging around under the hood of the Nikon Z50. We look at what Nikon's first APS-C mirrorless camera does and doesn't offer.
Leica has today announced the D-LUX 2, which appears to be a re-skinned Panasonic DMC-LX1 (review available today). So this camera will not be much of a surprise, it's got the same 4.0x zoom, 28 - 112 mm equiv. lens with built-in image stabilization and (sadly) the same 16:9 ratio eight megapixel CCD as the DMC-LX1. For your extra dollars you'll get a cleaner case design without a hand grip and with that all important red logo. Leica will be making available the 'Digital Adapter 2' which will enable you to shoot through a spotting scope.

The large 2.5-inch display with 207,000 pixels renders a brilliant image for sure evaluation of your composition and reproduction. The option of manually setting the aperture and the shutter speed gives you creative freedom. However, optimal images are also quick and easy with the scene programs and automatic controls. Select from as many as 14 scene modes. The new Digital Adapter 2 makes the camera ready for digiscoping – fantastic nature photographs through a spotting scope.
