LEICA D-LUX 2
The compact digital for mega pictures
The high-quality lens 
LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT 6.3–25.2 mm f /2.8–4.9 ASPH.
 
with 4 x optical zoom is composed of lens elements made of complex optical glass 
and it features an ideal range of focal lengths that extends from 28 to 112 mm 
(35 mm equivalent). That enables you to cover practically everything from the wide-
angle to the telephoto range. The legendary Le ica image quality is enhanced even 
further with the 
optical image stabilizer
 (O.I.S.) that effectively compensates for 
camera shake to ensure razor-sharp pictures at all times, even in the telephoto range,
in low light conditions and when you take quick snapshots. And there is a choice 
of
 three picture formats :
 16:9 (8 MP) ; 3:2 (7 MP) ; 4:3 (6 MP) – of which the 16:9 
format is HDTV-ready for viewing. The 
large 2.5-inch display
 with 207,000 pixels 
renders a brilliant image for sure evaluation of your composition and reproduction. 
The 
option of manually setting the aperture and the shutter speed
 gives you creative 
freedom. However, optimal images are also quick and easy with the 
scene programs 
and automatic controls.
 Select from as many as 14 scene modes. The new Digital 
Adapter 2 makes the camera ready for 
digiscoping
 – fantastic nature photographs 
through a spotting scope.
