"In certain shooting situations the use of camera systems with lens changes is often required. Thanks to the Leica V-LUX 2's large range of focal lengths, this compact camera has the ability to capture almost all moments of life." Kruschewski continues, "The Leica V-LUX 2 is an interesting alternative to comparable SLR systems. Compact and lighter, it significantly reduces the weight and volume of a traveler's photographic equipment."
