Makes My DLSR Obsolete
3

Like the other reviewer stated I did not want to lug my huge 1D series Canon body with L lenses to Prague on vacation.  Instead, I brought the Leica and it didn't disappoint.  The 2.8f lens was great for shooting in dim light and the long reach (600 mm) was indispensable for getting some of the shots I did.  When I returned and loaded my photos into Lightroom i was amazed.  They were sharp with beautiful colors right out of the camera and required very little post processing.  Since that trip the V-Lux 4 has become my goto camera.  It's light weight and superb lens and image processing engine have caused me to leave my large, heavy DLSR at home.

It's not what you look at, but what you see when you look.
