Leica V-Lux 3 coming soon, in stores before Christmas

The Leica V-Lux 2 was announced on September 21, 2010. Few days ago Panasonic announced the Lumix FZ-150 camera (see press release). Its predecessor, the FZ-100, was used to OEM the Leica V-Lux 2 camera. Leica is expected to announce a V-Lux 2 successor (probably called Leica V-Lux 3) in the next few weeks. First shipments are expected at the end of November 2011, just in time for the holiday shopping season.

    The early samples of the FZ150 compare really well to larger sensor cameras like the LX5 and Olympus XZ-1. Add Leica’s proprietary processing and you could finally have a pseudo successor to the Digilux 2. Minus the retro controls and fast glass of course.

    Color me excited.

    Wow, what a hideous lens cap. I hope it’s just a prototype.

    Why does leica waste time with this nonsense?

    Why would they come out with this in VLux3 when it’s stats are LESS than the VLux2?

      für die leica V-Lux3, schwestermodell zur panasonic Lumix FZ 150, trifft die aussage
      ” w e n i g e r ist me h r ” absolut zu.
      weniger pixel / pixeldichte = mehr bildqualität = ok

      ebenfalls positiv, dass panasonic den weg des “noch mehr zoom” nicht weiter mitge-gangen ist.
