Leica Digilux 3 SLR Interchanges Lenses

Interchangeability comes to the Leica Digilux line with the Digilux 3, the latest small-body SLR from the company that never seems to change its retro look. Equipped with the newly designed Leica D Vario-Elmarit F/2.8-3.5/14-50 lens, which can be swapped for other sizes (a Digilux first.) The camera is complemented by image stabilizing lenses that ensures crisp images in the harshest of situations — though heavy alcohol intake by the photographer is not listed as one of them on the company's Web site. This baby ups the resolution from 5 to 7.5 —megapixels over its predecessor, the Digilux 2, which retailed for $1850. Expect this one to blow the bank too when its October release rolls around. And know that this is the same camera as the Panasonic DMC-L1 that we saw earlier this year, but with Leica-specified image processing.
