    I have just bought a used (and slightly damaged, but still apparently fully functional) D-Lux 4 and am enjoying the image quality for the most part. It came with firmware version 1.0, so I upgraded to 2.2. With your book, do you have any sort of addendum covering hidden functions of firmware version 2.2?
    I am getting fairly short battery life, so will be ordering a couple of new batteries.

    Love the macro capability, the colour veracity and the exposure choices in snapshot mode.

      Hi — The book on the D-Lux 4 was written before the firmware upgrade was issued, and it does not cover the new functions. However, the book on the Panasonic Lumix LX3 was written later, and it does cover the firmware upgrade for that camera, which is almost identical to the D-Lux 4 in its operations. Also, Leica issued an addendum to its manual that covers the new functions provided by the upgrade. If you need further information, let me know.
