There are Vario-Summicrons and then there's the Digilix 2 Vario-Summicron. The Leica D2 let's you set up really great shots quickly with the easily accessible manual operation. Although not a true range finder, the EVP really works well and holds its own when the light goes down. Its sturdily built and hefty but surprisingly light. It's a classic armed with an impeccable 28-90mm Vario-Summicron on large glass, not the the tiny ones on the D-Lux series. That rare lens alone is reason enough to try and get hold of this gem.
The Leica Digilux 2 was released jointly by Leica and Panasonic in 2004. The Panasonic version was the Lumix DMC LC1. The cameras were distinguishable in appearance by virtue of the outer case and color. The Leica inherited the classic silver and black Leica rangefinder styling, while the Panasonic came in all black. There are few differences in the contours of the case… but for the most part, they're the same.
In this arrangement, Leica took responsibility for the optics while Panasonic (via some Sony technology) managed the electronics. But make no mistake about it, the business end of this camera, the lens, is all Leica. In many respects, the lens is the heart of this beast.
In addition to cosmetic differences, there is a difference in how the two cameras handle the image interpretation when shooting in JPEG mode. Just like you and I might "tweak" our images differently in Photoshop or post processing, camera manufacturers each have their own "recipe" for how the camera's image processing software creates the JPEG output from the camera's RAW file. The folks at Leica claim their software offers a look more suited to the Leica owner's tastes... in other words it looks more like film. :) Panasonic, on the other hand, will probably have a bit more saturation and punch to the colors. However, if you're shooting in RAW, it's a moot point.
Digilux 2, in my opinion, is the very best one can get in a Digital Camera, except for the Leica M8, which is not within the reach of many a photographer. The images from the Digilux 2 are the best that I have been able to create. The photoes appear larger to me than what the M8 & 50mm Leica Lens can deliver.
The bounce flash is a very superior feature that this camera has. The original sensor that the camera came with did deliver better pictures, than the new replacement sensor does. Sensor failure is a weak point in this camera. The lens on the Digilux 2 is a true optic capable of matching performance comparable to Leica M Lenses. I just wish that Leica had continued to make this camera for ever and ever. 5MP of this camera is more than adequate to give perfect results. A nicely fitted lens Hood, with its own cap is a feature that every lens should. Digilux 2 feels right in the hand and those, who have one that works - PLEASE HANG ON TO IT - regretted selling mine, but have replace it.
I like the digilux2 due to more high quality pictures in flickr gallery.I bought one from ebay and I enjoy it now.It can take sharp and rich color picture. I think Its picture is more 3D than others.The digilux2 is a excellent camera though its writing speed is too slow.
I like digilux3 too and I bought one from ebay after I bought digilux2.However its zoom ring stick on the 25,then I returned it to the seller.
