Leica D-Lux (Typ 109) Review


We occasionally take a look at other brands of compact cameras when we discover a camera that seems to offer something extra and which fills a gap in the Pentax/Ricoh line-up. It is no secret that we're fans of cameras that have a viewfinder, since this can be helpful in a variety of shooting scenarios, such as bright sunlight. And for that reason, the new Leica D-Lux (Typ 109) caught our eye.

Neither Pentax nor Ricoh has have a enthusiast compact offering with a viewfinder. Enter the Leica D-Lux (Typ 109) with its 2,764,000 dot electronic view finder and big sensor (four thirds): the next step down from APS-C. These two aspects promise a useable compact camera with an image quality that could earn it a spot as second camera for a demanding DSLR shooter.

Does the Leica deliver on this promise? It certainly catches the eye with its sleek design and impressive technical data. Read on to find out!
