Leica V-Lux 40 pictures and hands-on

By 18 September 2012

Rounding off our Leica coverage is the Leica V-Lux 40, the "travel zoom" of the group that we hadn't got our hands on until Photokina. Announced earlier this year, think Panasonic Lumix TZ30 (ZS30 if you're across the pond in the USA) and you're 99 per... >>

Leica D-Lux 6 pictures and hands-on

By 18 September 2012

As per the V-Lux 4, Leica's D-Lux 6 is, by and large, a re-badged version of the Panasonic Lumix LX7. That high-end compact had already impressed us, so what does the Leica re-work bring to the party? The D-Lux 6 has some great Leica quirks: the embossed... >>

Leica M-E pictures and hands-on

By 18 September 2012

"Leica" and "budget" tend not to be words you see side by side or even in the same sentence. But the Leica M-E rangefinder goes at least some distance to trim back the price of this classic rangefinder series. Is that "E" for economy? Not quite, but here's... >>

Leica V-Lux 4 pictures and hands-on

By 18 September 2012

Leica has always re-licked Panasonic's top-spec compact cameras, and the Leica V-Lux 4 is no different. Those aware of the Panasonic FZ200 will see the immediate and obvious similarities, but there are one or two sheeny Leica elements that go towards... >>

The new Leica M (2013) pictures and hands-on

By 18 September 2012

There's something to be said for Leica cameras. The M-series is rather like the fine art of the camera world: the M9, for example, has its Pollock-esque imperfections, but they add to its charm. Pop a Leica lens on the front of the M9 rangefinder and,... >>

Leica is known for its high-brow cameras almost as much as it is for its limited-edition designer versions. The latest, the Leica X2 "Edition Paul Smith", joins the pricey Leica M9 Hermes as one of Leica's growing limited editions. The Paul Smith version... >>

Panasonic Lumix LX7

Panasonic Lumix LX7

By 20 August 2012

There’s no sign of the high-end compact camera market slowing down. Panasonic, which reinvigorated the affordable premium sector with the launch of the LX3 back in 2008, has been a front-runner in the category and looks to continue this success with... >>

Leica X2

By 20 July 2012

The Leica X2 is a bit like the Ferrari of the camera world. It looks gorgeous, has some enviable features, but it’s also extortionately expensive. And it’s that last point that will price it out of most people's reach. How expensive? Try £1575 for... >>

There's something about Leica cameras; it's hard to quite put a finger on it. So when Pocket-Lint had the chance to play with a brand new Leica X2 we rushed at the opportunity. Announced last week, the Leica X2, which will replace 2009's X1, adds a new... >>
