Breaks and breaks again,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Leica D-LUX 5 Compact Camera ( 11.3 MP,4 x Optical Zoom,3 -inch LCD ) (Camera)
My camera is back in Germany AGAIN. The roller selector has broken AGAIN. When it last return from Germany I discovered the flash no longer popped up too but since a) I hardly ever use the flash and b) I was about to go away again and I didn't want to be without it for another FOUR weeks I thought I'd keep it on me instead. Big mistake. Now the roller selector broke AGAIN and it's gone back to Germany they say I've dropped it and it's not under warranty. Over 200 euro repair.
This camera has had four faults in 18 months. Flash doesn't pop up. Selector wheel broken (twice). When shooting in manual the menu screen pops up on the display and just rotates and rotates. (You have to turn the camera off and on again). And the zoom breaks and goes fuzzy. Again, turn the camera on and off again...
From a cheap brand I might expect this, but I bought a Leica because I wanted better.
Totally disillusioned with my Leica experience...
