The Leica D-Lux 7 turns out to be a very pretty camera, one of the most Leica-like compacts the firm has produced so far. With its head-turning looks, the camera packs another surprise — it costs under £1,000, just £145 more than its Panasonic sibling. That’s got to be a good deal.
According to Leica Rumors, the new V-Lux to be announced at Photokina next week is "most likely" based on the FZ1000. If so, this is a logical move for Leica and will turn the V-Lux into a truly desirable tool for serious photography.
