Lens

Lens:
"They called today to say the lens was damaged and that they would have to send the camera to Germany, but that Leica said it would not honor the warranty."
_
"Lens quality is everything in getting a good shot and this German made lens is on spot."
_
"You can buy the Panasonic version of this camera with the same LEICA lens for less, but I'm happy with the Leica company commitment to photography and their customers."
_
"Ironically this camera is lighter than the Lumix TZ3.I also wanted a camera with an excellent lens."
_
"Shooting with a wide angle lens is a must for me and this camera exceeded my emotional need for space...forground, sky, and the panoramic feel of the 16:9 ratio."

Price

Price:
"I like the camera's look and feel, but am disapointed with the picture quality reletive to the price of the camera."
_
"The street price of this camera is $599 and the camera is available from reputable dealers like E. P. Levine in Boston, yet Amazon highlights the ridiculous price of over $1200 being asked for by Wall Street Photo."
_
"Considering that Leica's S-line and new rangefinder camera go for no less than $3,000, even used, this is an affordable entrance into a revered brand of high-quality camera makers, and I'm glad I can finally afford to at least get a feel for this iconic cameramaker, even if it is through a little point & shooter."
_
"The camera is cute - it's simple and chic, without having a lot of annoying cheap, plastic 'chrome', lightweight yet feels sturdy in the hand, easy to use, and simple to slip into a purse or handbag - but the lens makes it a bit difficult to slide into a back pocket."
_
"FOr the same price you could probably get a decent Canon Rebel, or a super nice Canon point and shoot."
_
"Well worth the money --the lens makes all the difference."
_
"I've owned a fair number of point and shoot digital cameras varing in price from the inexpensive low megapixel to the latest greatest, the later including the Leica D-Lux3."

Quality

Quality:
"However, if you want a camera because you love photography and won't drop dead because the camera doesn't take super-fast action photos or isn't 24.2 MP, you'll love the simplicity and quality that this camera brings."
_
"at $450, there is no P+S camera that would be able to match the quality images this camera produces."
_
"I like the camera's look and feel, but am disapointed with the picture quality reletive to the price of the camera."
_
"However, the quality is not as good as the brand."
_
"I've had to settle on poor picture quality and missed lots of great shots."
_
"Lens quality is everything in getting a good shot and this German made lens is on spot."
_
"Pocket size, legendary design, easy to use, remarkable picture quality, superb optics and extremely long battery life."
_
"Great quality service by Amazon and excellent buyer because I received the Leica digital camera like he offered in his advertising."
_
"I'm not a pro photographer, I just like taking good quality pictures that don't look like a cheap disposable camera."
_
"The quality of the pictures taken with this camera is outstanding."

Size

Size:
"The D-Lux 3's metal body gives a feel of substance, but can also be a little hard to hold because of its small overall size."
_
"Warning: Though conveniently small enough to fit in your pocket, this camera will be too small for people with shaky hands or weak fingers; They will need a point-and-shoot with a built-in grip, such as the Canon 'G' series."
_
"It's lightweight, small, stylish, and noninvasive, great for street photography and just everyday picture taking."
_
"Pocket size, legendary design, easy to use, remarkable picture quality, superb optics and extremely long battery life."
_
"I was in the market for a small compact comera with good images being top priority."
_
"2-3Mpix size, even ISO 400 images can be still well usable."
_
"Most point and shoots have lenses the size of Charles Manson's pupils, but it's impressive."
