    ...the first model of a new line of Leica digital compact cameras that every stylish, fashion-forward consumer will want to own."

    "...the sultry beauty of the Leica C..."

    "The Leica C-Clutch is a luxurious clutch handbag with a carrying strap. In light gold or dark red Alcantara with a sandblasted metal closer, it offers two separate compartments with ample space for the camera and other personal belongings."

    I weep for Leica. :(

    "I weep for Leica."

    So that was that sobbing sound I heard in the middle of the night . . .

    Cheers, Jock

    Actually, it looks like a nice compact but like my LX3 which has been going strong for years I'd only buy the Panasonic version - which I actually think looks more sophisticated in this instance than the Leica one!

    I keep hearing the phrase "rich Corinthian leather" in my head. . . .

    I'd hate to see Hasselblad's take on the LF1...

    The LF1 looks and feels like a $100 digicam, and compared to the LX7 (D-Lux6 actually) you can see a big loss in lens/image quality on the edges. Still, the LF1 is more than competitive for its very tiny size. When the 'C' arrives for me I hope there's some upgrade to the LF1's finish besides just color, otherwise a lot of people are going to wonder where their $700 USD went to.

    Well, if someone wants this version or the Panasonic...likes the looks of this one and needs LR5 then I think it's a fine choice.

    Frankly, I've always preferred the looks of the Leica versions of these "clones".
