    Leica V-Lux3

    Hello
    This is my first post on CiC.
    I am thinking of buying a Leica V-Lux 3 compact due to its large zoom range for its size.
    It will be very useful for holiday phots when weight restrictions apply.
    I am a bit concerned about camera shake when the zoom is fully extended.
    Has anyone any experience with this model?

    You are quite correct about worrying about the long zoom (equivilent to 600mm lens on a full frame camera). This is why advanced users and pros shot with a tripod or monopod. The long zoom has more to do with marketing than usuability on this class of cameras. Its virtually the same as the Panasonic FZ-150 crossover camera.

    I would prefer that the manufacturers provide more at the wide end, but that is optically more difficult (and expensive) than providing a longer zoom range.
