Of all the Leica compact cameras, the D-Lux has one of the fastest lenses. Its zoom lens is perfectly matched to its large sensor. With an impressive sensitivity range to ISO 25600 thanks to particularly large pixels, it makes the best of available light and delivers pictures with natural colours and exceptional quality. Perfect for available-light photography and, thanks to a versatile zoom lens (24 to 75 mm in 35 mm format), in an almost infinite number of creative genres – from portraits, landscapes, and architecture to macro and reportage, the classic domain of Leica cameras.
Even at first glance, the D-Lux reveals its heritage as a genuine Leica – classic elegance, timeless beauty, and particular attention to simple and intuitive handling. The change between automatic and manual modes is also particularly simple. Even less experienced photographers can enjoy the experience of immediate success – and seeing it brightly and clearly on the high-resolution 3" LCD monitor, even in bright sunlight. In an instant, anyone taking it in their hands feels and sees the superior quality of both its materials and finish.
The ideal composition and framing of subjects and scenes is quickly found in the integrated electronic viewfinder. Thanks to a resolution of 2.8 megapixels, it delivers a sharp, high-contrast image – even in bright conditions. Cleverly, the viewfinder shows the same exposure settings as are displayed on the monitor. As it also offers individual diopter compensation, the viewfinder can be used by glasses wearers with no limitations at all.
