i find this camera to be just great, at least for me.

Takes images in RAW comparables (and some times much better) than my nikon D80.
with wonderfull modes, like vivid tones and intense B/W.

I must admit i pay a bit more than the supposed to be equal Lumix Lx3 but to have a leica with retro look (i love the leather case for carrying it to).

What did you think of this review?

I would LOVE to have a Leica, but I couldn't fathom spending that much money on a point and shoot at this point.  I have a Canon SD750 that cost about 2/3 less and it has been doing me pretty well.  I took all the pictures in my French Laundry review with that camera and they aren't half bad.  I'd love to see your pictures in reviews, too! :)

I've been faithful to Canon for years yet recently found myself seduced by a Leica D-Lux 4. I feel soo.....good.....Is that bad?

Wiki

From the Manufacturer From the Manufacturer The compact nature of the D-Lux 4 means it can be with you all the time. But despite its compact size, it offers top Leica quality and gives the photographer plenty of artistic freedom. The D-Lux 4 is ideal, whether for subjects composed with lots of forethought or for spontaneous reportage.

The high-aperture professional lens

The Leica DC Vario-Summicron lens 1:2.0-2.8/5.1-12.8 ASPH is a high-aperture lens for digital compact cameras that allows the real enthusiast to work with an open shutter. Its high speed makes the Leica D-LUX 4 ideal for available light exposures. Whether in poor light or for selective use of field depth, the lens of the Leica D-LUX 4 gives the photographer scope for highly individual picture composition. The aspherical zoom lens with a focusing range of 24-60 mm opens up new creative options in reportage photography.

The lens design consists of eight elements, of which four are aspherical. These are matched individually to the camera sensor, working in harmony with the electronics and software, to produce stunningly brilliant pictures in true-to-life colors.

Powerful sensor

At a standard resolution of 10.1 megapixels, the overlarge size of the 1/1.63" CCD image sensor increases image quality distinctly. The smallest details of the subject are reproduced exactly. The D-Lux 4 can take photos in all three formats (4:3/3:2/16:9) to suit the particular recording or playback situation. On the 3"...
