Bits of info has been leaking onto the interwebs about a new upcoming Leica the last few weeks. The V-Lux 20 is all but been revealed now though with specs, pics and launch info. God bless the Internet.
The V-Lux 20 is based on the Panasonic ZS-7 and will be a compact pocket shooter as the pics clearly show. The camera has an HD video mode, GPS, and a 3-inch rear LCD. Nice, eh?
The camera should hit dealers on April 20th and retail for €549, which is two hundred over the similarly-spec’d Panasonic. But it’s a Leica so of course it will cost more. That little red label costs a lot.
