Comments about Leica D-LUX 6 Edition by G-Star RAW Digital Camera (Gray):

I am 70. Frankly, I just can't deal with the weight of my DSLR. I looked at all my images in Lightroom and felt that 98% of my photography was family, travel and business (manufacturing) related. I have been very disappointed in the consumer point & shoots, as lens quality seemed poor. I believe that my new Leica will provide me with a light weight camera with a reasonable lens. I am very excited.On a side note, a friend asked why would I buy a camera from an established '1940s-era' German manufacturer. I researched the history and discovered the background of the Schlindler-like Leica Freedom Train. My only concern with the camera is that I have not been able to effectively use the pop-up flash to its fullest extent. I was hoping to get a 'little' eye catch, but have not been successful. I will work on this. For my needs, the weight and balance are perfect. The case is exquisite. I am a happy camper. However, the most fascinating feature is that the firmware automatically adjusts for close-up images. Just amazing.

Leica D-Lux 6 with extras

Comments about Leica D-LUX 6 Edition by G-Star RAW Digital Camera (Gray):

I am not a camera expert. So! Im not going to comment on the many wonderful functions this D-LUX 6 Edition by G-Star Raw Digital Camera by Leica has to offer….... I think this is a great camera! Point and Shoot, with a lot of extras. Like the leather on the camera body, not just for looks, it gives you some grip. The leather neck strap is a good length and the leather it self, will soften in time. The Leather Camera case is a retro 40's design, Fun! It really is a great camera.

Comments about Leica D-LUX 6 Edition by G-Star RAW Digital Camera (Gray):

The lens on this camera is stellar--as the specs and the Leica name suggest. (Can you imagine what a crop-sensor lens like this would cost purchased separately?) But I also have been impressed by the camera it is attached to--incredible color rendition, useful in-camera shooting/editing modes, 41 auto focus points, fast and quiet (in this example--more later) zoom, bright, detailed LCD monitor, precise, mechanical contacts with every push of a button. I use video very little but this camera says it records 2X the frame rate of my SLRs--and this is in a point and shoot! I look forward to many years of travel photography using this camera.

The bad: the first example I received was "built on Friday": leather was applied crookedly and, when the replacement arrived, I discovered the lens motor was louder than its replacement--who knows what else might be mediocre on that unit. B&H at first balked at my return--to my absolute surprise--but a cooler head corrected that presumption and even rebated me my expedited shipping. The experience made me cautious of B&H for the first time--but ultimately they have yet to fail me. Great camera, well-made accessories--the ideal lightweight travel camera.

    Comments about Leica D-LUX 6 Edition by G-Star RAW Digital Camera (Gray):

    This Leica G-Star Camera is simply the best for my all around purpose, both outdoors and on stage. The compact size is perfect, however for me the grip is a must for that more stable hold. The images are amazingly sharp, as they should be for a Leica. I love the two different shoulder straps that come with the kit, but the very nice case with the belt loop has a small issue, the shoulder strap is NOT removable...very odd flaw, why have a belt loop.
    All this has nothing to do with the Camera which is awesome and great looking.

        This camera is remarkable and B&H is great. Your available inventory of cameras is the best and you shipped the same day I ordered it.

          Comments about Leica D-LUX 6 Edition by G-Star RAW Digital Camera (Gray):

          The D-Lux6 G-Star edition is worth nearly its weight in gold for the lens alone. I've never seen or used a small compact camera with a lens like this. The aperture of f1.4 doesn't begin to tell the story - it's a rare camera this size and down that has a fast lens that's so sharp and undistorted out to the edges wide open. The included accessories with the G-Star edition are well worth the extra expenditure as the carrycase and straps are the perfect protection for this high-tech camera.
