While we’re on the subject of pocket-zoom cameras, Steve Huff Photo has reviewed the new Leica V-Lux 20 based on the Panasonic Lumix TZ10 – it features a metal body available in black, and has a 25mm 12x optical zoom lens (25 – 300mm), GPS, 12 megapixel sensor, 3″ 460k screen, 720p video with stereo sound, optical image stabilisation, and comes with Adobe Photoshop Elements. The Leica V-Lux 20 is available for £472, the Panasonic TZ10 is currently available for £253. This is one of the only reviews available at the moment, along with a the real life review from Beruit.
“The V-Lux 20 is a marvel of modern technology when you think about it. I mean, this thing is small! The first time I saw it I thought “No way in hell this thing can give quality images at 300mm, the lens is too small”. The design is clean, and very much like the D-Lux 4. It’s black, has the red Leica dot, and comes with a charger, battery and software all packed neatly in one of those cool little Leica silver boxes.” more at SteveHuffPhoto
