Leica's cloning of Panasonic products continues with the V-Lux 4, a near carbon copy of Panasonic's excellent FZ200. If you crave that red dot on your camera body and neighbors' envious glances, this is the better choice. Otherwise go with the Panasonic and save yourself some money. Expect to see the V-Lux 4 in stores in November.
