As I have been less than active on this site for an extended period, I do
not know if anyone has reviewed the TYP 109 (Leica D-Lux). As soon as I
read the specs I ordered the camera from Adorama Photo in New York. As a
matter of fact I was told by my salesman that I was first on the waiting
list. I am not disappointed. The camera has every conceivable effect and
control. I am used to using the Panasonic Lumix line and have always found
the various models (through the GX1) to be just what I need. The one thing
about Panasonic is the seem to listen to what people are saying on line.
This ubit with its fast lens- built in EVF, and short (but extendable
optical -not digital zoom) has made me very happy. It is tank like in its
construction and very smooth in operation. And now IQ. I enclose 2 images.
Both images were taken at an ISO of 1600. The noise is negligible. I am
very happy with the Leica lens.!i=3
Merry Christmas to all. vroger<<<<<<<<<<

Hi Roger,
Beautiful ladies to test the new camera on! :-) Is this camera something
like the Leica Digilux 2?

I bought the Digilux 2 when it first came out and have used it shooting B&W
in camera or colour when required. I only have one complaint? It's "slow in
it's functions!" Other than that it's Leica solid and as far as I'm
concerned LEICA sharp auto-focus lens and quality.

I don't use it on "paying assignments," generally family and happy snaps

One of my 2 photos in the 2014 LUG BOOK is of my granddaughter Emily shot
with it in colour and available light! You wont be able to miss it. :-)

Merry Christmas, even if it's late and a very Happy New Year 2015! :-)
