All my life I have owned Nikon cameras. A year ago I switched to a Canon. Recently I purchased the Leica D-Lux (Typ 109). This is the best camera I have ever owned. It is simply a joy to operate, and at 72 I'm not burdened by carrying a heavy camera, such as, the Canon.

My first digital camera was a Leica Digilux 1. Loved that camera. Took it all over Europe and got some wonderful pictures. Later, I tried Nikons, Olympus and Lumix cameras but nothing ever satisfied. Now, I've come full circle with the 109. I love this camera.

Small, lightweight camera. The autofocus doesn't always work with me. Haven't used the viewfinder once. Otherwise, works very nicely. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 works just as well, this Leica is just an "updated" version. Though, for the price I prefer the Panasonic.

Fits my needs perfectly: A serious camera that has Leica design, and can be operated from fully automatic snapshots to full control of aperture, shutter speed, and an enormous selection of options. I wanted to learn more about photography, but didn't want to get involved with multiple lenses, etc.

As a long time DSLR user, I have quickly become accustomed to, and really like, the D-109's smaller size, considerably reduced heft and agility that comes with a smaller, lighter camera. Pictures are really sharp and close-up shots have a beautifully shallow depth of field.

Awesome little camera. So many options, very confusing and complicated, it will take awhile to learn. I had a Leica film camera that I loved. Welcome to the 21st century.

After owning D-Lux 3, 4 and 5, I was hoping, like many others, for D-Lux 6 to have a 1" sensor as it was being rumored so many times. But I was very disappointed when DL 6 was announced with the same small sensor; and, as I did not find much improvement from DL5, I did not upgrade to "6"!

Love this camera. First off I'm a point and shoot type of person now, however I've owned SLR's and numerous lenses. What I truly appereciate is the lense (1.7) on this thing. No flash needed so far and it's been 3 months. Pictures are perfect 95% of the time the remaining 5% is user error.

I did not give this a 5 star as it is over priced for what you get. The fact that it may be built to last twenty years does not matter in an area where the technology changes so fast. I did not "need" this camera but bought it as a treat for myself.
