Leica Digilux 2 still amazes me

After our vacation I took my Digilux 2 out from the storage cabinet and shot some pics indoors in quite a poor light. As I can only (or at least mainly) use ISO 100 I once again utilized three-shot series to hopefully have some sharp shots. And I managed to get some. Some amazing shots. My Digilux 2 was in B&W white balance because I feel that this camera takes very nice monochromes. Every time I manage to get sharp shot with this camera I really like the result. It is very difficult to explain why those shots shine but there certainly is something in them. With other cameras the shot would just be one sharp shot among others, nothing special, but with this Leica it will be more.

Leica Digilux 2 is a tricky camera to shoot with that’s for sure. But the reward will be more than with those modern digital wonder-gadgets having all the bells and whistles. The shot below is one of those I love. F2.4, 1/4 s (hand-held), ISO 100, 90 mm.
