The high-quality LEICA DC lens system is even more versatile with 25mm ultra wide-angle to powerful 10x optical zoom. 25mm wide-angle lens enhances all kinds of shooting situations, like when you're photographing a group of people at an indoor party or shooting a large structure or sweeping landscape while traveling. And the 10x optical zoom gives you highly natural expressions from people and animals that you can't get close to.

The Panorama Shot in the Scene Mode makes it possible to shoot horizontal / vertical panoramic images by overlaying consequently shot images. The Auto Retouch function adjusts contrast and brightness to give different impression to the photo with just a press of a button.
