The company has submitted two Leica cameras called luxury Leica V-Lux 2 Leica D-Lux 5. Both are updated versions, but released under a different brand.

The model Leica V-Lux 2 is an enhanced copy of Panasonic Lumix FZ100 , and the Leica D-Lux 5 is an improved version of the Panasonic Lumix L5.

The Leica V-Lux 2 has a 14-megapixel CMOS sensor and a lens array that offers an optical zoom up to 24 increases, and also offers the ability to record 1080i video with only resolution and the intention of firing a burst at full resolution with speeds up to 11 frames per second.

Obviously the cost has risen, and has grown from $ 500 to over $ 1,000. Available in European markets starting next October.

As the second and last option we have the Leica D-Lux 5, a much more flexible camera, with a 10.1 MP sensor and the ability to record video at a resolution of 720p. Although it does not share many characteristics with his partner (the V-Lux 2), the cost of the D-Lux 5 also amounts to $ 1000. It will available in Europe in October.
