I bought the Digilux 2 on an impulse from a dealer I trust the day before a three week trip to Germany. Actually I traded an X-Pan system that I don't use anymore for it. I shoot mainly scenery and architecture, not people much or sports. I was a little dubious about the electronic viewfinder at first, but soon became comfortable with it. I shot mainly in automatic focus with spot metering. Also, with the large LCD screen I found myself even using the LCD. With either one you can get a grid pattern for architecture and the histogram, which I found useful. I found that with the larger LCD and the ability to zoom and crop in the camera, I had more confidence as to the results I was getting. I was surprised at the camera's effectiveness in low light cathedrals and even wide open, there appeared to be pretty good depth of field. If I were seriously using this camera for architectural stuff, I would slow down and use a tripod, but this was just a pleasure trip. I found the camera a real treat to use all around and was pleased with the results.
