Hi, Peter,

Ah, so. Thanks.

Actually, I see now that the Leica C-Lux is essentially the same as the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS200, which is the successor to the DMC-ZS100, with a larger zoom ratio to its lens (which is however "slower" over its entire focal length range), a somewhat better EVF, and so forth.

I looked into the ZS200, but was a bit concerned that the longer zoom ratio might provide even more compromise in lens performance than in the ZS100 (and I was able to get a used ZS100 for quite a bit less money!).

And as to civilians being impressed, the most prominent legend on the front of the ZS100 is the "Leica" on the lens. Recently, at a civic meeting, the lady sitting next to me looked at the ZS100 and said, "How lovely! I had a Leica when I was in college."

Thanks again for the scoop.

Best regards,
