The Leica V-Lux 5 is an ultra zoom, fixed lens, bridge camera that has the famous Leica dot, and a Leica price to match. 

With the Leica V-Lux 5, you get a large 20MP CMOS sensor, Leica  DC Vario-Elmarit lens with 16x zoom (25-400mm) and an autofocus speed of 90 milliseconds. ISOs up to 12800 are available, Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) is built in along with an f/2.8-4 aperture range. 

The electronic viewfinder has 2.36MPs and OLED technology to assist you in image composition. Plus, contrast ratio and colour depth have been improved from previous models without affecting battery life and there's a 3-inch rotatable touchscreen.


0.1 seconds is all it takes for the V-Lux 5 to autofocus on the subject and when capturing moving subjects, burst mode shoots up to 12 frames per second.

4K video allows you to choose between 24, 25 or 30fps frame rates or you can shoot 60fps when using Full-HD.
