Re: Leica CL vs. D-Lux 7 Image Quality

I still own a DL109 and it’s a useful compact camera. But I also own a CL and the difference is very easy to see, particularly if you shoot RAW and process in LightRoom. There’s a lot more range to play with in terms of being able to pull out detail from shadows or highlights. I don’t own a Q or Q2 but both beat the CL hands down in terms of detail recovery.

The CL offers lots of flexibility and there are more than enough lens options available outside of TL lenses. And that’s before you use manual “M” lenses.

My DL109 still gets used, but specifically when I want something pocketable and want to control the image while shooting, otherwise just get an iPhone which has better resolution.
