Leica D-Lux 3 or Panasonic DMC-LX2?

I am about to buy a new compact camera, and have narowed my choice down to the panny or leica. I looked at the canon S80, but it lacks the wide format.

Noise is meant to be an issue in the panny, which Leica seems to have sorted. Any one used or have any idea about these two cameras?

All advise welcomed.

Many Thanks

Re: Leica D-Lux 3 or Panasonic DMC-LX2?

I've not used either of these, vicar, but after a quick cursery google on them both it would appear they are very similar cameras - if not identical. 10mp, Leica 4x lens, OIS, 2.8 LCD. If it was up to me, on those specs, I would go for the Leica if only because they have more history and experience of making cameras.

That said, you seem to have decided on what you want in a camera but do consider it's main usage eg landscapes, portraits, close-up, macro etc.

Re: Leica D-Lux 3 or Panasonic DMC-LX2?

Thanks for the advise stepheno. As for usage i want a point and shoot , that gives me the flexibility to take portraits, landscapes etc.

It is always difficult trying to squeeze a lot of people/space into a frame, hence my choice. If you have any other suggs re make of camera, advice will be appreciated. If not Leica it is.

Many Thanks for the advise

Re: Leica D-Lux 3 or Panasonic DMC-LX2?

I've just had another looksee and as it's just been released there's no reviews yet but the spec looks excellent. The Leica is a rebadged Panasonic but it certainly looks the business. Anyway - it'll be a great name-dropper at the next wedding when you remark "I've got a Leica"

If you do get one give me a PM and I'll pop into the Equipment Reviews and you could do a review for us Good shooting and lets see some pics!

LOL, depends, most people at weddings I have been to would probably end up in a very silly conversation....

'I've got a Leica!'

'Oh lovely, would you like to give us a tune on it?'

' No madam, that's a balalaika!'

'Oh yes, silly me, I wear one on my bicycle in winter, should've known!'

'<koff> That could be a balaclava!'

'<Laughing embarrassed> Oh what a fool I am, of course! Mind you, it does taste lovely!'

'Errr, isn't that baklaver? Very popular in Mediterranean islands?'

'Oh gosh, you're right again. Yes, you really are clever!'

'No, I said...., oh never mind. At least you got that bit right!'
