    My first photos (taken as JPEG only) with the new Leica D-Lux (typ 109) - these were taken in a gloomy rainy environment, approximately 20 minutes before sunset, albeit the clouds were so thick that it wasn't possible to see where the Sun actually was. The tree resolved well given the flat lighting, but the landscape foliage didn't fare so well. The pier in the landscape shows great detail given its distance across the water, since it normally looks very "wavy" due to temperature differences between the air and water. What I see in the foreground foliage isn't so much out of focus even though the aperture is f2.8 - the 4/3 sensor just struggles in very bad light with extremely complex subjects like foliage.
