I saw a Leica V lux for cheap and thought about snagging it. But I don't know how i feel about zoom lens since I mainly shoot portraiture.

I believe the Leica V Lux is a rebadged Panasonic FZ1000 and that's basically a good thing because that makes it a great general-purpose camera.

The only thing that might be a slight drawback for portraits is that the camera has a fairly small one-inch sensor, which does a great job but won't throw the background out of focus as much as some people want for portraits.

When it comes to the lens, I suppose a fast prime lens might be preferred by many people but I don't think there's a problem using a zoom lens.

Anyway, I'd bet there are a lot of people who love the V lux and I think you'd like the camera.
