Fronted by an image-stabilized high-quality optical glass lens that has a four-times zoom capability starting at a focal length of 6.3mm (the equivalent of 28mm on a 35mm camera), plus a wide light-gathering aperture of f2.8 at the widest setting, the D-LUX 2 is both iconic in design and a tactile delight. The aluminum body is backed by a bright 270,000-pixel LCD screen measuring 2.5-inches diagonally, along with controls to access a wide variety of features.
Most appealing to experienced photographers is the Leica’s ability to function in the operator’s choice of fully manual or automated, plus aperture- and shutter-priority modes. Focusing options include automatic, macro and electronically assisted manual. Image quality is such that you have seen photos from the D-LUX 2 on the pages of this magazine.
