Leica V-Lux 30 camera review


The Leica V-Lux 30 is based on the cheaper Panasonic TZ20 and cost a small fortune for a point and shoot. This camera never claimed to be a great value for money pocket zoom. However, if you stomach the outlay, the comprehensively featured and...

Build and features ; Pick up and shoot usability ; Up-to-the-minute tech

Price tag ; Expensive for point and shoot ; Modest light sensitivity

With the ability to achieve crisp results no matter which point we’d arrived at in the Leica V-Lux 30’s expansive focal range, and if we liked pinpoint where those images were shot on the world stage, the Leica whilst not being freezeproof, waterproof...

Leica V-Lux 30 review


There's a new travel zoom on the block in the shape of the Leica V-Lux 30, a 14.1 effective megapixel, 1/2.33 CMOS sensor incorporating, 16x optical zoom model with sophisticated accents yet familiar boxy styling. In fact, it resembles a re-badge-d...

Very broad focal range from a camera that will still readily slip into a trouser pocket, sturdy feel “built to last” construction, intuitive to use, 16x optical zoom can be used when recording Full HD stereo video, 3D mode, built-in GPS

Costs as much as step-up DSLR with standard lens combo, maximum selectable ISO only ISO 1600

If you can stomach the price tag the Leica V-Lux 30 is a very capable addition to the travel zoom fold

Leica's latest luxury compact has brand cachet and a high price to match

A decent compact with nice design, bundled with excellent software. Not the best value for money, though

18-200 mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS


weak image quality at the frame edge for the range of 100-200 mm and near the maximum relative aperture,, distinct distortion level at 18 mm,, high vignetting for both extremes of the focal range,, high astigmatism for the range of 100-200 mm,, not...

After the announcement of the Sigma’s 18-200 mm OS suggested price my first impressions were rather negative – I didn’t think it could sell itself well. It turned out the Sigma company knew what they were doing – they simply appreciate the products...

Features a pair of sensors that compensate for camera shake and automatic detection of camera movement when panning...

Excellent resolution for this type of lens, OS, price

Too much chromatic aberration

Where the non-OS lens is disappointing this stabilised version is a stunner, with excellent resolution

Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM review by mannypr


This is a nice lens . It's very sharp from 18mm-75mm with very low distortion. From 75 it is a bit soft at the corners but still sharp in center . at about 100mm it's soft again getting sharp by 135mm and at 200mm it's quite good for an inexpensive...

Built , overall good sharpness , effective OS

Inconsistence in sharpness , prone to veiling flare , heavy

Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM review by koolou


I have never had a Sigma lens before for any of my previous DSLR's but decided to purchase this Sigma 18-200 for it's large zoom (11.1X) and also its large filter size(72mm)

Very reasonable cost
