Default OMG... it's got a red dot!

the Digilux 2. I just bought it this morning, used. it's a little over 3 months old. fyi... they've just recently ended production of these. 12 months ago it would have cost twice what I paid.

had my eye on this for a long time. love the old school controls. 5MP.

summicron lens, F2-2.8, 28-90mm zoom, hell that alone is worth the $1000 I paid. has the built-in pop-up flash.

flash can also be set at 45 degrees to bounce off the ceiling. pretty smart.

a REAL solid piece - magnesium metal body, nice black rubber covering. feels good to hold. now I have to buy a case, a tripod and read the manual.

Default ...first test shots

a straight shot with the flash positioned dead on

same shot with the flash at 45 degrees, bouncing off the ceiling. what a difference that makes.

the animal.

Default you'd save a few bucks, if you could find one.

some differences: leica 3 year warranty, panny 1 year. also the image capture is set slightly different with the leica being richer with more contrast tha the panny. no difference though if shooting RAW. plus resale value of the red dot.
