Re: DLUX 7, Q or Q2

Having owned a D-Lux 109, D-Lux 7 & a Q2, I would recommend the DL7 - unless money is no object, then its the Q2 all day long.

Don't think the DL7 is a re-badged Lumix. Its not. The DL7 uses Panasonic hardware (like the Lumix) but it uses Leica's own image processing algorithms and produces much better shots than the Lumix.

I would say the Q2 is 30% better than a DL7 but it does cost 4x more and thats something to consider.

For close up portrait and street photography the Q2 is superb, but at 75mm the DL7 produces better quality shots.

The DL7 is a brilliant camera and great value for money but if money is not object the go for the Q2 as its a better camera apart from the size, weight and at 75mm

Whatever you get I'm sure you will be happy.
