The new camera from Leica will be called V-Lux 20

Leica V-Lux 20 mockup

I got some info on the new camera name - it will be called Leica V-Lux 20 (and not C-Lux 20 as previously reported - the EXIF data was correct). Some dealers can already place orders for the upcoming Leica V-Lux 20. The reason they decided to go with a V instead of a C model is probably because of the long zoom - 12x (the camera will be based on the Panasonic ZS7, so expect exactly the same specs).

    Well.. to be honest I expect also a V-2 camera with a more useful range and build quality… I mean V-1 was really good but the 35mm at the wide end was really limiting. I wonder if Leica could make a (for example) V-2 with a 25-150 lens where the lens itself would be an excellent one. I’d trade the 150-300 range if this would mean one or more stop gained in aperture

    In fact, previous V1 model was very good in tele side but very limited in the wide one. If Leica can’t do a (for ex,) 25-150 F/4 optically stabilized and very well corrected, they must at least offer a 25/28-300/420 (however wider than 35) and with a better lens than V1 model. If Leica wants me to pay premium price, must also offer a superior lens as well, good not only because of the “Leica” brand but because of an effective optical excellence you can see on the field

    This V-Lux 20 is the clone of Panasonic TZ10 / ZS7. The zoom range is therefore 24-300mm.
