Germany’s famed camera maker, Leica, has announced the release of their new Leica V-Lux 3 compact digital camera; coming this January 2012. All the hype on the new Leica revolves around the super telephoto lens on the unit. Using the Leica DC “Vario-Elmarit” 4.5 – 108 mm, f/2.8 – 5.2, 24-fold super-telephoto zoom lens the V-Lux 3 range of focal lengths is equivalent to 25–600 mm in 35 mm format. Impressive for a small body unit.
