Hi all

Two reviews the first in Spanish and the second from dc watch in japan. The DC watch review is interesting as it has the L1 using the Zukio 14-54mm (2.8-3.5) pro lens. I'd have liked to have seen a direct comparison between the L1 and E330 with both sets of lenses to see how different both cameras really are. Pricewise the E330+14-54 Zukio costs about $1200.00USD and thats £1200.00 (go figure...) and the L1+Leica D is priced at $2000USD (lets hope thats not £2000.00). The important question would then be is the L1 really worth $800.00 more than the E330 for essentially a rangefinder look, full mag alloy body, IS + Venus.



Some much better sample shots in these two reviews.

Thanks for the links! FINALLY, some interesting and thoughtful test shots.

The ones on the Spanish website look pretty but unfortunately they're all very small in size (unless I missed something on the site).

The Japanese site has what looks like full-size examples. Overall they look pleasing; I downloaded a couple and played around with them in Photoshop Elements. The images posted on the site were a bit soft but they sharpen up nicely. Noise is lower than I thought it would be. I might poke around a bit more on the site tommorrow.
