Apart from the particularly high speed, it is the ultra short initial focal length of 24 mm that opens up new creative opportunities in landscape, architecture, travel and reportage photography, for example. Its high speed also makes the Leica D-LUX 4 ideal for available light exposures. Whether in poor light or for selective use of field depth, the lens of the Leica D-LUX 4 gives the photographer scope for highly individual picture composition. An integrated image stabilizer reliably protects against camera shake in all photographic situations, even in difficult light conditions.

The additional possibility of adjusting the viewing angle ensures a good view of the display even for extreme camera perspectives.
