Leica D-lux 3

 

A rangefinder to help you look at your photography in a whole new way

A beautifully made camera with top quality image and features, but an expensive option

Leica D-Lux 3 review: Leica D-Lux 3

 

Leica D-Lux 3

Great lens; nice design; lots of manual controls.

Generally soft photos; mediocre movies; no optical viewfinder; expensive.

A good choice for an enthusiast looking for a powerful camera that can fit into a jacket pocket; however, the Leica D-Lux 3 has a price only a Leica aficionado could love.

Leica D-Lux 3

 

Does a Leica by any other name smell as sweet? See how the D-Lux 3 compares to its less-expensive Panasonic twin, the Lumix DMC-LX2.

Great lens; nice design; lots of manual controls.

Generally soft photos; mediocre movies; no optical viewfinder; expensive.

A good choice for an enthusiast looking for a powerful camera that can fit into a jacket pocket; however, the Leica D-Lux 3 has a price only a Leica aficionado could love.

"EXCEPTIONAL GERMAN QUALITY"
