Leica's photographic heritage shines through with a quality piece of kit. It's not the quickest camera ever, though.

The Leica's a solid camera and a solid performer. It's just a bit too expensive for its own good.

Leica C-LUX 1 Digital Camera User Review

 

The Leica C-LUX 1 is essentially a rebadged version of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01.

Price ; Noise ; Lack of manual aperture/shutter speed

Overall this is an excellent camera for anyone looking for a high end point and shoot to carry along day to day. Perhaps as a compliment to your M series Leica? It performs well, looks good and is easy to use. Its made well and has excellent battery...

Leica C-LUX 1

 

I've been using this camera for about 2 months now and have been thoroughly pleased with its performance. To begin with, it's small, tiny, compact enough to fit in the cell phone pocket of my pants, that gives it fantastic portability! The zoom lens...

Small ; great resolution at ISO 80-200 ; great macro mode ; image stabilization ; Leica 2 year warranty

noise at iso 400 ; price, you can get the Panasonic FX01 for about $150 cheaper, only reason i bought it was that I got a deal ; iso 800 & 1600 is just not practical for anything but webshots or maybe 4x6
