Leica V-Lux 20

CNET UK has tested one of the newest digital cameras from Leica. This camera is very similar to the Panasonic ZS7/ TZ10 compact, but has a few changes and of course a higher price tag. The Leica camera is called Leica V-Lux 20 and features over 12 megapixels, 12x optical zoom and even built-in GPS.

Some key features for the Leica V-Lux 20:
-12.1 megapixel image sensor
-12x optical zoom lens (25-300mm)
-3″ LCD screen
-Built-in GPS
-720p HD video recording
-Uses SD and SDHC memory cards

CNET UK ends up giving the Leica V-Lux 20 a total score of 3.5 stars out of 5 possible. On the positive side we find aspects such as useful zoom range, good construction, the camera is easy to use and the GPS-tagging is handy. On the negative side the reviewer finds only one major point and that is hefty price tag that comes with the red Leica badge.
The V-Lux 20 is a very good compact camera, but is the Leica tag worth the extra money or maybe one should look at other compacts that has more features?
