Leica Digilux 2 review

I've had the Digilux 2 for a few weeks now and I can say that I am glad I
found one. (They are hard to find since Leica has stopped marketing them.)

I was using my Nikon D50 to finish a project for a book when I tested it
against my Digilux 2. No compairson. The Leica and that wonderful
Summicron lens worked circles around the Nikon, which I thought was a fine

The Nikon will be collecting a lot of dust now.

I've had cameras with EVF before, so I am used to that...It also saves battery
life, because it drains less than the larger LCD screen.

Leica has a winner here. I just wished they had not walked away from it.
Maybe the new Digital M will be the next great step; although, I hear it will be
priced about five grand US.


Not enough time to take pictures.
