Key features

The Leica V-Lux is a prosumer camera. It combines the Leica tradition and modern technology at different level. The 20MP large sensor delivers outstanding image quality. To complement the imaging power Leica incorporated a 25~400mm (35mm equivalent) zoom lens with fast 2.8 to 4 aperture. The DC Vario-Elmarit has 15 elements in 11 groups. The lens can provide crisp image with rich color. The OLED electronic viewfinder replaces the traditional rangefinder of most Leica.

The lens is powerful enough to cover the photographic need of a regular user. From landscape to portrait or sports photography all can be preformed by this huge zoom lens. Leica V-Lux can shoot at 12frame/second at full resolution which is excellent. Besides taking still photographs it is cable of capturing razor sharp Ultra High Definition video at 3840 X 2160 resolution. Ultimately its a really powerful camera in a small body and for a Leica its cheap too !!
