Photographyblog reviews the Leica V-Lux 40 and writes;
“The compact gives a respectably consistent performance in most conditions, which is ultimately what you want from a camera that you can whip from your pocket for an instant snap when the photo opportunity presents itself. It’s also much sharper than competing compacts when it comes to maintaining detail across the focal range,”

Imaging-resource reviews the Leica V-Lux 40 and writes;
“ISO sensitivity ordinarily ranges from 100 to 3,200 equivalents, with the ability to extend this as far as ISO 6,400 equivalent in High Sensitivity mode. There’s also an Intelligent ISO function, which detects if your subject is moving, and adjusts sensitivity appropriately to gain a shutter speed to freeze that motion. Shutter speeds from 1/2,000 to 15 seconds are possible.”
