Leica D-LUX 5 Leica D-LUX 5

Leica has released the D-LUX 5, a 10.1-megapixel variation on its compact camera line, with a 5.1-19.2mm f/2-3.3 ASPH lens that has an extended range of focal lengths equivalent to 24-90mm in 35mm format.

With the broader focal range, images can be taken in macro, wide-angle or portrait format. The fast aperture allows for better low-light photography. This unit also offers extensive manual controls, 720p HD video and a control click-wheel. Like the V-LUX 2, the D-LUX comes with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

A wide range of optional accessories is available for this model, including the EVF1 mounting, electronic viewfinder, the CF 22 accessory flash and a handgrip to help ensure steady and safe handling of the camera.

The D-Lux 5 retails for $799.
