Leica V-Lux (Typ 114)


The Leica V-Lux (Typ 114) is the same camera as the Panasonic FZ1000, but it adds a longer warranty and an Adobe Lightroom license.

Superior image quality at higher ISOs. Very fast autofocus. 11.8fps burst shooting. 1-inch image sensor. 16x zoom range. 4K video capability. Vari-angle LCD. Sharp EVF. Integrated Wi-Fi with NFC.

Expensive. Bulky. Lacks built-in ND filter. Not weather sealed. Physical controls could be better. 4K video is cropped and requires manual exposure control.

For lab tests, sample images, and details on how the camera handles, consult our full review of the FZ1000.

Leica V-Lux (Typ 114) Review


The Leica V-Lux (Typ 114) is a new superzoom bridge camera with a larger than average 1”, 20.1MP sensor and a maximum sensitivity of ISO25,000. Its 16x optical zoom range translates to a relatively modest 25-400mm (in 35mm camera terms), but you do get...

Leica V-Lux (Typ 114) review


With 4K video and a huge zoom lens, it's the most versatile high-performance bridge camera around

Incredibly versatile ; Excellent image and video quality ; Fast autofocus

It’s expensive ; Almost identical to the cheaper Panasonic FZ1000

Leica’s latest is a jack of all trades – and a master of some. The Panasonic FZ1000 is its equal, however – and £300 cheaper

Leica V-Lux (Typ 114) review


Leica's new bridge camera is almost identical to the impressive Panasonic FZ1000

1-inch sensor ; Large maximum aperture and 16x zoom range ; Extensive feature set

Screen not touch sensitive ; Bulky for a 1-inch sensor camera ; More expensive than the Panasonic FZ1000

Like its almost identical twin (the Panasonic FZ1000), the V-Lux Typ 114 has a very desirable lens and a good quality 1-inch sensor that produces high quality images in raw and JPEG format.

Leica V-LUX TYP 114 Compact


Flexibility, really very little it can't do!

Finding one's way around the settings is far from intuitive.
