  1. I have a Canon 5D which I use most of the time and a G7 to use as a pocket camera. For times when the 5D plus 24-105 lens is too big and I want more fun than the G7 will give, I was thinking of a D2. In fact, I put a $100 non-refundable down payment on a used (excellent ++) D2 from Tamarkin this morning. I am beginning to think I am crazy to pay almost $900 for a four-year-old 5MP camera with an EVF, long (by today's standards) shutter lag, and reported issues with sensor failure. On the other hand, the camera/lens are calling me, and the photo examples I have seen do seem to have a certai
  2. Hello, ok, here there are. At your own risk. For me it works fine. :-) 1) Make sure that you have insert a full battery in your D2! Put a sd-card into the slot and make some pictures. Turn the power "Off". 2) Set the mode dial to "Single picture". 3) Press "Flash" (the small button on the right top of the cam) and "Up" on the cross key simultan, hold them and turn "On" the power. 4) Press simultan "Flash", "Menu" and "Left". Now you are at the error code memory screen. 5) Press simultan "Flash", "Menu" and "Left" again and whoops here are the most interesting infos.
  3. Hi, I suffered from Gear Acquisition Syndrome from 2005 through 2012. After that I never touched a camera for two years. Just wanted to let you know how I recovered. I purchased a Digilux 2. This was after reading through all the threads here. Thank-you all, and to the inomparable D2, for helping me. Over and Out.
  4. Wer hat Lust seine 5 besten Bilder aus den Schwestern hier zu präsentieren? Zur Erinnerung an eine Leica wie es sie so nicht wieder geben wird.
  5. Hallo, ich habe meine Digilux 2 seit 11 Jahren. Ich habe vor einigen Jahren einen no-name Ersatzakku gekauft. Ich habe die letzten Jahre die Kamera selten benutzt - der Akku war schnell leer. Zuletzt lädt der Akku ca. 10 min auf - dann erlischt das grüne Licht beim Ladegerät - wenn ich den Batterie fest hineindrücke - leuchtet das Gerät wieder für eine Minute - und so weiter. Der Akku ist dann nur wenig aufgeladen. Frage: Genügt es einen neuen Akku zu kaufen oder ist das Ladegerät defekt? Kann man das Ladegerät einfach testen? Im Internetversand wird ein Set mit 2 akkus + Ladegerät u
  6. I love my D2, but unfortunately I found a problem in Digilux 2 manual focus @ infinity. Basically manual focus @ infinity will not focus on infinity at all. Here is my test: [1] Put camera on tripod, set aperture @ F2, set zoom @ 28 mm, and set focus distance at infinity. I took a picture, and I found both foreground and background are blur, and I don't even know where is the focus. [2] Set focus @ AF, point to infinity, and took second picture when AF indicate light is green. this picture is very sharp, both background and foreground, which is expected. It looks like this problem on
  7. Liebe Mitglieder, Ich habe eine Digilux 2 mit einer späten Seriennummer, also zu einer Zeit gebaut, wo es keine Probleme mit dem Sensor geben soll wie bei den früheren Produktionen. Jetzt ist es mir passiert, dass die Camera von Zeit zu Zeit nicht mehr anging, dann aber wieder doch, also soetwas wie ein Wackelkontakt. Wenn sie angeht ist sie voll funktionsfähig, wenn sie nicht angeht passiert gar nichts. Ich habe sie zu Leica eingeschickt und telefonisch erklärt bekommen, die Camera sei nicht mehr reparabel, da die Elektronik kaputt sei und Leica die entsprechende Platine nicht mehr lagert. A
  8. Hi All Not long ago I finally took my Digilux 2 to a Leica store for inspection and repair. I have always suspected the reason why I got dead black screen and couldn't power on was the image sensor (or whatever reason that everyone else had). The shop examined it and reported that they couldn't fix it because Leica no longer produced the parts for Digilux 2. I know it's my fault to have waited this long to try fixing it, but I've always thought Leica would value its machines well enough to at least keep the capability of repairing them. I don't know what to do now. The shop I
  9. Hello, this is my first post on the forum. Am currently reading page 81 of 117 pages on this thread so I don't know if this has already been posted. I am actively searching for a D2 and contacted Leica UK the other day asking about free sensor replacement. Was told by Customer Services that; ' up until quite recently, sensor replacement on the Digilux 2 was carried out free of charge, but as of 2013 this is no longer the case ' So there is now a charge and it was suggested that this would be under £200. My apologies if I am posting something you all already knew...
  10. Hello fellow D2 owners and lustoteers. Thought I'd let those few interested know that I did a bit of an online contribution to the continuance of the D2's popularity. For those with some extra time, here is the lil' diddy. PHOTOGRAPHIC CENTRAL: Leica Digilux 2- Still A Contender Cheers, -Carl
  11. Hello, I perhaps will buy D2 in very good condition. The compatibility of this apparatus seems s' to stop with Windows XP. On my PC I have Windows 7 and Lightroom 3.1 that I use to develop the RAW of my D-Lux 5. Will I also be able to use D2 with Windows 7 and Lightroom 3.4 ? Thank you for your answer. Guytou
  12. Having used my Digilux 2 for a while now, it seems that certain focal lengths produce pictures which are definitely not straight. From what I can tell, the longer the focal length the straighter the picture. Most of the shots I take at 90mm or thereabouts are fine. They might need a minor tweak to get them totally straight, but by and large they're OK. On the other hand, the wider shots often seem to be really skewed and need considerable straightening in PP. It's strange. It's not a dealbreaker by any means; the D2 is my walkabout and backup camera and I like the pictures I get from i
  13. I got hold of a Digilux 2 recently, but something's up with the memory cards, I think. I put in a Sandisk ultra 2 gig card (new), and all I get is a "memory card full" message, or "memory card error". I formatted one of the cards (I have two) in-camera, but got the same result. It's a regular SD, not a Super-Mega-Whatever SD. What gives? EDIT don't worry, sorted it out:)
  14. When I removed the Digilux 2 from its bag today and turned its switch to "on" there was no response. No image through the viewfinder, the flash would not go off. Nothing. The battery was just charged. Could the battery have failed? Is there a way to test it? Where should it be taken for repairs? Thnaks for all responses.
  15. Olympus has just released a new compact camera, XZ1, which has a 1/1.63" CCD (similarly sized with Digilux 2) and a zoom lens which is 28-112mm equivalent, with F1.8-2.5 maximum aperture (maintains f/2.2 until 100mm). Olympus XZ-1 Quick Preview Preview: 1. Introduction: Digital Photography Review Looking at the photos of the thing, I was stunned how minuscule the whole lens unit is when compared what Digilux 2 has. Isn't it interesting? How do they do it? Koray
  16. Just broke down and bought a Digilux 2 for $650 including 3 batteries and 5 filters . What I really don't need would be the filters, however, just the same happy to get... I had been contemplating for some time if I really needed the Digilux 2, but after reading Thorsten's great article, I couldn't resist. I think this will complement the M-9 which I have been using for most of my shooting. According to many, it's amazing what this little Digilux 2 is capable of doing. Looking forward to trying it myself Best Regards, Hank
  17. Having recently bought a Panasonic GH1, I'm interested in hearing the views of those who use Leica lenses with micro four thirds cameras. I already have a Digilux 2 so, with the D2 28-90 lens, it makes sense to me to consider Leica prime lenses for the GH1. From your experience, which lens would you advise I consider or would you instead advise that I select from those lenses (Panasonic/Leica) specifically designed for micro four thirds? Thanks in advance.
  18. It occurred to me that I really should share.

  20. Hi, I just received a digilux 2 in the post today and there is a problem with it. It looks like the sensor needs replacing. Here's an image of the display from the lcd However, I currently can not find a SDSC card at home so have yet to try it with a memory card in. I have already contacted leica via phone about the issue and was told it sounded like the sensor has given up but they also said just to try it with a card just in case. Is someone able to confirm whether this is the sensor from the image shown? I need to contact the seller and may not be able to find/buy a smaller card i
  21. Has this been discussed? A search didn't find anything. The D2 has a great lens; does it have a 'sweet spot' as many lenses do?
  22. Ok, this is a bit out of season, but hopefully no one will mind. I shot this on a backpacking trip in New Hampshire in October. In addition to the amazing ability of the Digilux 2 to capture the image, is the fact that I was bending over with a 40lb pack on my back to shoot this in the early morning light. Thank you for looking. kaethe
  23. I have recently purchased a little used D2. It has had its sensor replaced. When turning on and off, or when it is exposed to bright lights, there is a quiet ticking or clicking noise to be heard, coming from the front of the camera. I cannot be more specific than that. Has anybody else had a similar issue and do you know what it is? thanks Robert
  24. I have noticed that most D2s seem to have arc shaped scratches near the strap lugs, which appear to be caused by the plastic connector covers scratching against the sides when the camera is being carried. Some of the non-OEM straps available have protectors in place to stop this but I note that the Leica straps (even for the M series) do not. Until my new strap arrives, I have found that a small circle of felt can be placed over the lug and the strap connected over the top to prevent such scratches. It doesn't look too bad (see attached) as a short term measure but more importantly it sho
