Leica Camera AG forges ahead with an independent position in the digital era by combining the current best of two worlds: The new LEICA DIGILUX 2 features modern digital technology and the proven concepts of analog photography in a splendid combination. It is the first digital camera that can be operated like a classic professional camera. With the shutter speed dial on the top cover, the focusing ring and the setting rings for aperture and focal length on the lens, its operation is familiar, fast and precise. That makes the LEICA DIGILUX 2 the ideal tool for expressive images in an individual style. And because the results must be brilliant even in poor light situations, its core component is a high-performance lens with 13 elements in ten groups, incorporating valuable optical glasses as well as the legendary optical competence of Leica. That and its optimal harmonization with the sensor and the electronics lead to photographs with extraordinary quality. The LEICA DIGILUX 2 with its ingenious features thus carries on the trend that began so successfully with its predecessor Digilux 1, itself the recipient of many awards. The classic styling with structured rubber covering and the rugged magnesium body furthermore make it a durable reportage camera in our fast-paced era.
