I'm wondering what people are hoping for in a replacement for the Digilux 3? For me I would like to see a reduction in body and lens size, larger sensor, exceptional low light performance, and an array of prime lenses. I feel there would be a large demand for a camera system which was compact, rugged, competitively priced. My experience with the Digilux 3 has been great! But the size can be improved. My major disappointment with it is that I purchased it feeling that Leica was going to make a large selection of lenses for it. Specifically, I really enjoy using wide angle summicron lenses, so was really expecting them to make a 28 and 35mm equivalent. I am excited to see what they will be coming out with next. Would love to see one that has a full frame sensor, uses r lenses or its own compact line, and is sized along the Digilux 2. Perhaps there is room for an R10 and a baby brother, much like Canon has created in the 1Ds Mark III and the 5D Mark II. I would love to have an R10, but am concerned the price point may be out of my reach at the moment. I miss the days of film when image quality was more based on lens and film used vs sensor lens combination... Leica has made some smart decisions lately. I hope they are putting some attention into the gap between the D Lux 4 and the M8.2-R10 price range. Are their any others out there craving a compact system camera with exceptional image quality, prime lenses, and a more affordable price? Perhaps something similar in size to the Contax G2 System? What would you like to see?
Has anyone tried this device with a Lumix L1 or Digilux 3, specifically with the Leica D lens family? Does it work, does it support OIS and other electronic features of the D Lens, etc? Please share what you know about this. I have contacted Olympus and will post their reply if it is of any significance.
I just sent my Leica D VARIO-ELMARIT 1.2-6.5 14-50 ASPH lens in for repair under warranty to the Bigston Corp in Elk Grove Village IL. They are the Panasonic licensed repair facility. I had to send the camera body along with the lens....at least that is what Panasonic wanted me to do. Problem I am having is that the lens will stop at 18 to 25 when zooming about 50% of the time. A bit of wiggling gets it to go to full zoom. Also at full zoom and lens extension, the front part of the lens is loose and can be moved about 1/8 of an inch. I have no idea what is wrong. I have not used this lens and camera that much. I have probably shot more with my Olympus Zuiko lenses on this body than the kit lens. I hope they turn it around quickly. I am happy that it fits under the 12 month warranty. I have had the camera for 9 months now. Bigston did a good job on the sensor replacement on my LC1 about 7 months ago......however I did have to pay 560.00 USD to have it done because the warranty of 6 months on the CCD was up. I guess that is where the Leica warranty is better......however I paid something under $1100 USD for the LC1 when I bought it new. I don't regret replacing the sensor, because I do love the LC1 and I am happy to have it while my L1 is in for repair. I will report back to the list what we find out just for everyone's general information on this lens. I posted something about this before, but it seemed like I was alone with this problem. Dick
