Leica has released the V-Lux 5, a rebranded Panasonic Lumix DC-FZ1000 II that’s a successor to its V-Lux Typ 114, which itself was a rebranded Lumix FZ1000.

Aside from a few aesthetic changes, such as a smoothed pop-up flash casing, rounded edges, Leica branding and the iconic red dot, the V-Lux 5 is identical in specs to the FZ1000 II. It features the same Vario-Elmarit 24-400mm (equivalent) F2.8-4 ASPH lens in front of a 20-megapixel 1"-type CMOS sensor.

The 2.36MP OLED EVF is identical to the V-Lux Typ 114 EVF, aside from a slightly more magnified view (0.74x compared to 0.7x, respectively), but the three-inch articulating screen on the back of the camera does feature a nice bump in resolution compared to the V-Lux Typ 114 (1.24 million pixels compared to 920k pixels, respectively) and is now touch-enabled.

Like the Lumix FZ1000 II the V-Lux 5 is based on, the camera now features Bluetooth connectivity in addition to Wi-Fi for more wireless options when pairing with the Leica FOTOS App. The V-Lux 5 also weighs a bit less than its predecessor at 812g (compared to 830g).

Battery life is rated for 440 images, according to Leica, and the autofocus speed has seen a slight improvement over its predecessor (90ms compared to 100ms). The V-Lux 5 features Panasonic’s 4K Photo and Post Focus modes, as well as 4K video at 24, 25 and 30 frames per second.

The V-Lux is now available to pre-order for $1,250 at Adorama and B&H.
