Leica VLUX 20

“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
