Leica C-LUX 2 review

I have used this camera quite a lot in the last year and a half. Picture quality is very satisfying in daylight conditions. I've found it more or less the ideal compact camera for making holiday pictures, because of its very small size and good picture quality.


I've had a problem with dust in the camera, causing spots on every picture. Cleaning was quite expensive. After this I bought the very beautiful leather case from Leica (also expensive!), I did not want dust in the camera again. But the hard case caused another problem: the camera can easily be switched on accidentily while stored in its case. This means the lens wants to come out but is halted by the case. This causes an error, which could be solved by switching the camera off and on again. Until yesterday, now it is completely out of order and repair will of cause be: expensive!
