Anyone a convert to Leica? I've thought about buying a used M series (M6) for years.

I've really been contemplating getting the digi lux camera but I'm just not sure if it's worth the extra cash. All of the reviews I've read are really great so I'm torn.

Really? I haven't followed this for a while, but last I've read (a few years ago) the consensus was that leica digital cameras are absolutely not worth the money (unless you must have a leica name). The mechanical cameras are a different, story of course.</p>

When I was researching small form factor cameras, of course I gravitated to the Digilux or D-Lux, whichever model it was.. because I liked the aesthestics. Come to find out, they are damned near identical to Panasonic offerings (i.e. the Lumix) and you're paying a hefty sum for the Leica name and supposed "propietary image processing". I ended up going with a Canon. I'd advise you avoid their digital products - film, another matter entirely. </P>
