Leica V-Lux 2 – Review


My first experience with a Leica camera was an old R4 SLR with a 50 and 105mm lens that was passed down to me from my mother, a photographer in the 1970s. Today, that camera still produces some of the sharpest images I have ever shot. So when I was...

Large zoom range ; Good ergonomics ; Vari-Angle LCD

Noisy images ; RAW Files not easily readable

If you are running low on memory and are only interested in producing smaller prints in the end then you can select either the 4.5MP files to allow you to print images up to 8×10 inches or the 2.5MP files will product 5×7 images.

The Leica V-Lux 2: A versatile superzoom with impressive specs

The Leica V-LUX 2 is an excellent superzoom model, yet it's not as special as other Leica models and has too high a price tag for what it does offer

Leica V-Lux 2


I liked to use my Leica M3 and R4 before I changed to digital photography. Here I owned and used a D-lux 3 and a V-Lux 1 and was very pleased with both of them. Then I changed to the V-Lux 20 and the V-Lux 2. The V-Lux 20 produces

24 times zoom if you use mostly a Tripod
