Leica Digilux 2

Except for a new removable lense format, Leica has implemented nearly every wish I had into their new Digilux 2 camera that was released this week. Namely the focus, zoom and aperture rings on the lense will give this the feel of a real camera. Playing into the hands of customers like me, they’re marketing it as “the ‘analog’ digital camera”.

There’s been a lot of talk about the new arrangement of features since the press release issued Monday, but all of this talk has everything to do with the perceived user interface since the public hasn’t actually shot with it yet, which shows how critical the camera UI is for serious photographers. It looks like we’ll have to wait ‘til February to get our grubby hands on it to have a look at the image quality. Hopefully the image quality, which was already strides ahead of its class with the Digilux 1, will improve in the same measures as the look and feel of this new camera.

Hi just a note: lens doesn't have an e on the end!

But the new Leica sounds very interesting!
