The D2 is a unique camera. Unlike others I find it suitable for low light as well - as long as you keep the ISO at 100 and take advantage of the shape and size of the D2 that allows you to shoot even at 1/4 seconds handheld when you shoot series of three (the first will have motion blur from you pressing the shutter, the next two will have only the motion blur from actual things moving in the picture).

 

Both mine have had their sensors replaced.

 

I started a series of blog articles about the D2 some days ago, feel free to follow:

Do Digilux 2 photos have distinctive look? Yes!

Here some examples with the wide converter:

Thanks for the compliments :-)

At the first and last one i made exposure metering on the highlights in the sky.

The first one looks so dramatically cause a heavy storm was blowing over the island and the sun was only looking through some little holes. This are my first photos with the Panasonic wide converter on my Digilux. A very heavy and bulky piece with x 0,82.

It made a good job with a minimum of distortion and i realy love the panorama style.

Don't bother with the Digilux 2. They seem so unreliable. Get yourself a fabulous Digilux 3. I'm a real fan of this machine. Like you, I have a Canon SLR too (30D) which is fine for high-end work, but I wanted something lighter as a "carry-round" when I'm on vacation (but better than a compact). The Digilux 3 has given me some fantastic results, most of which seem to need far less post production than anyhting off the Canon 30D. Also, the lens is really crisp. I also invested in a Metz flash for it. Although I've had the Digilux 3 since January, I'm about to take it on its first real "road test" on a trip to Ireland. I'll let you know my complete review on my return.

So far as I aware, the D2 has only suffered sensor failure (not Leicas' fault) and can be replaced free of charge. Otherwise it is extremely reliable and, with care, should not need to visit a workshop again!
