Hey! You should know that Leica has released a newer version of this product: the Leica V-Lux 4.
Leica V-Lux 3
The V-Lux 3 is Leica's re-brand of Panasonic's very good FZ150. If you absolutely need a Leica red button on all of your camera gear, then go with this one. Otherwise, save your money and get the much cheaper FZ150. The V-Lux 3 comes with Photoshop Elements and Premier as a bonus, not that those make up the price difference.
