    I bet that really has the Lecia feel, i.e., a hand reaching into your pocket.

    I wonder whether the re-selling price of Leica will be better than panasonic?

    Besides LR, Leica also offers a 3 year warranty, so extra 200 USD is not that bad. Plus, in countries like mine (Portugal) where Panasonic's photo presence is all but non-existent (both is shops and customer service), Leica is a well known brand, reputable, and with good service.

    I have a question since it's Leica badged, in the US where would you send it to get repaired under warranty? I actually kinda like how it looks!

    So the lx100 does have OIS.

    Apparently, here in Europe, the Leica version is only 100 Euros more. Taking into account that the Leica version also includes Lightroom, I have a feeling that this may become a very successful product for Leica.

    I do assume, however, that the firmware of the Leica will basically correspond to that of the Panasonic.

    I would assume Leica in Allendale, NJ (I work nearby) would accept warranty service. I've dropped by a couple of times for service... both were good experiences.

    I have to admit, I've never been interested in any compact from Leica, just the M and S systems. I have purchased a few Panasonics that bear their name.
