Previously Leica announced the D-Lux 8 as its newest compact camera, saying it would go on sale from July 2. Well now it's available to buy worldwide and this little camera has a bit of mystery surrounding its specification which has caused a little bit of hype across social media - especially on Threads.

As Ecommerce Editor of Digital Camera World it's my job to highlight deals or "in stock" announcements - and while I'm sure you prefer me highlighting deals saving you $$$ off your dream camera setup - I think you would really take note of this new little marvel from Germany and I'll explain why below:
