Lecia digital cameras are not worth it, at least until they catch up in-terms of the sensors. For a reasonable priced digital starter camera that captures the simplicity of lecia's check out this Panasonic http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/panasonicdmclx3/ . No crazy zoom. No super high 15mega pixels that only reduce overall quality. F2.0 at 24mm 2.8 at 60mm. The ability to manual focus.

Indeed there is a Leica version. It is probably not worth the extra money but who cares. Both are great.

I don't mind the paint loss, but the ding above the stap lug and the ruined hood I could live without. Still, the most easily replaceable part took the blow, so it could have been much worse.

Ouch! It hurts. I dropped my D80 a little while back when I tried to pull it behind my hoodie. It slipped forward, instead of backward toward my neck. Luckily, the camera landed perfectly on its base, and the only damage was to the lens's shutter leaves. The lens was promptly sent back to Nikon for repair and is now as good as new. Yes, it could've been a lot worse.

got my dlux-4 last week, been trying to find some interesting things to take photos of. just fixed my t4 as well. so should have my hands busy. certainly not the best photographer...but trying...the colors on this beast is so vivid. never had a lens like this before.
