Today, Leica has announced that the popular D-Lux 7 compact digital camera will be available in all-black version. Since its introduction, the camera has only been offered in a two-tone silver and black. This more stealthy styling hearkens back to its predecessor, the D-Lux (Typ 109), which also featured a blacked-out appearance.

All technical specifications and features of the D-Lux 7 Black match the silver version. The Leica D-Lux 7 features 17 megapixels of resolution on a large micro 4/3rds sensor, a fast 24-75mm (equivalent) f/1.7-2.8 zoom lens, 4K video, a 2.8 MP EVF, USB charging, and high-res touchscreen display. The camera also offers wireless connectivity through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth that recently received a performance upgrade with Leica FOTOS 2.1 on iOS, iPadOS, and Android. You can read more about the D-Lux 7 here.

Price Decrease

Also notable with this release is that Leica has quietly lowered the price of the camera from $1.295 to $1,195, both for the new D-Lux 7 Black and the existing D-Lux 7 Silver.

The D-Lux 7 Black is available starting immediately from Leica Store Miami for a price of $1,195. You can order by clicking the link below, emailing info@leicastoremiami.com, or calling 305-921-4433.
