Leica, Sometimes more expensive is NOT better.
It is a nice camera, but does not justify the price even for the low price you pay on e-bay, My newer sony which I bought cheaper brand new takes better pictures in the low light. Leica is definitely better in day light use. Also the battery drains out so fast that you need to carry extra 1 or two with you, as without warning the low battery light starts blinking, especially if you are using the flash, even a little bit. You are paying for the name as I did.

I've taken superb photos, printed 13x19, a great RAW portable camera.
Yes, Leica is expensive. However, for the size and the year this camera was made, the quality of the camera, the features and the quality of the images are all superb. Note that there are newer models of this same camera, the D-Lux 4 and 5, each incrementally better.
First, the images. The lens is Leica. The lens has some chromatic aberrations, or color fringing on the edges of highlights. However, the amount is much less than other cameras of the same age and size. This is part of the higher price and the aberrations can be fixed moderately well in photo software. The images can be printed to sizes as large as 13 x 19 (I have not printed larger). The images can be taken in RAW and JPEG formats. As the price indicates, the RAW format is also what sets this camera apart from similar sizes of the same age.
The case is metal with some plastic parts, which contributors to sturdiness. The lens is large with a large f/stop allowing for more light and better low light photography without a flash. The controls are intuitive and the key changes are easy to use when taking photos.
The camera is slow to focus by today's standards and the JPEG processing in the camera in not as good as others in its class. However, Leica does adjust JPEGs for the specific lens. This camera is meant for shooting in RAW and post processing in computer software which it still does very well even at the time of this writing. The format used is Adobe RAW, the same as the newer models and a standard in the photo industry.
If you are looking for a compact RAW camera on a budget, this used model is well worth checking out. The most important part of any digital camera is the quality of the lens and the quality of the sensor recording the light. This fits both bills.Read full review

Worth Every Penny
Outstanding camera. Much better purchase as a used item. The newer models are much more expensive and not much better by comparison.
