Leica D Lux 7
6

Hi all,

A short review of the Leica d lux 7 ...

I got tired of logging my Sony A7Rii with 2-3 lenses around since I do a lot of trekking with a heavy backpack ...

I have the Leica d lux 109 for light travelling and I find it a nice little camera - beautiful made and with an excellent image quality but you need to shoot raw and accept it’s limitations because of the only 12 megapixels ...

When the Leica D Lux 7 was announced with a new sensor with 17 megapixels and no low pass filter and the same beautiful analogue body as the 109 I saw my chance to get rid of the heavy Sony and buy the Leica ...

And what a camera it is ...

The manual controls and the faster focus because of the new processor makes it a breeze to shoot with ...

The raw files are extremely robust and I can easily pull out details from highlight and shadows so I end up with images which can nearly match my 42 megapixels Sony and that’s quite an achievement for such a small compact camera ...
