The first batch of the highly anticipated Leica D-Lux (Typ 109) has just started to ship in the United States. Leica Store Miami expects to have the cameras in stock tomorrow (Friday, November 21), so if you place a pre-order online today, your order will ship when the cameras arrive tomorrw. Unfortunately, there has been no word yet on when the accessories for the D-Lux will ship.
The D-Lux (Typ 109) offers some serious upgrades over the D-Lux 6 it replaces. With a 4/3 inch sensor that is 5 times larger, 4K video recording, solid metal chassis and body, a built-in 2.8 MP EVF and Wi-Fi, the new D-Lux is an amazing performer. We had a chance to play with one for a few days and everything from the feature set to the image quality was truly class-leading for a compact camera. This is a great opportunity to grab one before the holidays.
