Great portable camera. I owned the Leica's cheaper brother, the Panasonic DMC-LX5. However, I had to get rid of it because I missed having interchangeable lenses. I was waiting for the camera industry to come out with a small portable interchangeable lens camera that wasn't M4/3rds. And Sony did it with their Nex lineup. I bought the 5n when it came out and could not be happier.
