Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Image

Image:
"Each and every image was rejected from three online sites, and my agents due to overall lack of focus and detail due to excessive noise reduction (which smudged the images)."
_
"I shot a total of 263 images with the little gem and was extremely disappointed in the image quality."
_
"My problem, and this could only be my problem, not yours was the image quality."
_
"I bought my camera from B&H Photo in New York and was confused when the salesman said that there was no warranty with the Leica during checkout and that I should buy an additional warranty for 2 years."
_
"I looked at the Nikon P7000...mixed but generally lower reviews within this group (I have owned a number of and greatly respect Nikons); Panasonic LX5...which many say to be the same as the Leica (with the exception of jpeg processing); Canon G-12...which seemed ok with the exception of handling RAW production and the Canon S95...not as good in the lens department and photo processing."
_
"Large aperture coupled with a tripod produces excellent image in low light conditions.5."
_
"This camera produces excellent life-like high detailed reproduction of images."
_
"This camera makes clear & sharp images and I like the RAW + Fine Jpeg setting."
_
"I have always wanted a Leica because I have looked at sample images taken from Leica cameras and I have fallen in love with the way they appear."
_
"The D-Lux 5 produces RAW output; it can be manually adjusted for low light shooting; the resolution is really good; the low light images are amazing; and the overal image quality is superb."

"Auto focus is very fast, settings are easy, lens zoom retract are smooth and silent.3."
_
"The auto-focus is fast (the fastest I have ever seen in a point and shoot) and the lens is extremely good."
_
"The fast lens and functional freedom for me has resulted in some amazing photos, and hopefully after I understand more about the camera things will continue to improve."
_
"Great Leica lens with unmatched picture quality from any of it's close competitors (even to quite similar one's like the Panny LX5)."
_
"Now, I am quite positive that the Leica lens with the internal processor are far superior together than most, if not any other similar product."

Light

Light:
"I tried shooting starry sky mode (moon and stars) which I consider challenging because of low light situation and the picture exposure and saturation was superior to the shots taken by the other 2 cams."
_
"Large aperture coupled with a tripod produces excellent image in low light conditions.5."
_
"Very sharp and bright pictures could be produced even in dim light because of bigger aperture (a tripod is recommended in case of dim light situations).2."
_
"It is crisp, great in low light, and has great color straight out of the camera without processing."
_
"The D-Lux 5 produces RAW output; it can be manually adjusted for low light shooting; the resolution is really good; the low light images are amazing; and the overal image quality is superb."
