Leica lenses? You'll love Panny's L10

Leica fans craving a DSLR have only had Panasonic's L1 to choose from but now – 18 months on – it's come up with a successor in the shape

Leica fans craving a DSLR have only had Panasonic's L1 to choose from but now – 18 months on – it's come up with a successor in the shape of the L10.The new kid on the block gets a 10MP LiveMOS sensor. It combines live view framing with a swing-out 2.5in LCD which swivels through 270 degrees so there's no need to lie prostrate on the ground while snapping experimental angles. Amen to that, we say.Pansonic's also crammed it with features borrowed from its compacts, including Face Detection and a clutch of easy Scene modes - making it a user friendly option.And, of course, it comes with a lovely 14-50mm Leica lens brimming with Panny's Mega OIS stabilisation and Leica's optical goodness. Think of it as a little photographic gift from them to you.
