For some time I’ve been on the lookout for an old Leica Digilux 2, a ten-year-old design that is still respected and has become something of a cult model among Leica digitial enthusiasts. So the offer of a near-mint Digilux 2, complete with two filters, elecronic remote and spare battery, all in the original box, was too good to pass up. It’s a rare monster as you can see from this stock Leica product shot. I will be testing it over the next week or so and will provide some real pictures of the new beastie.
