As well as being compared against other travel zooms, the Leica C-Lux is also often compared to boutiques, waterproofs, pro digicams, mirrorless and super zooms. The Leica C-Lux's top rivals come from Nikon (such as the Coolpix A1000 and the Coolpix W300) and Panasonic (such as the Lumix DC-ZS200 (Lumix DC-TZ200) and the Lumix DC-GX9)

compared toTravel zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Leica C-Lux compared to other travel zoom competitors include: it has a slightly higher resolution screen (1,240k dots vs 1,040k dots), takes significantly higher resolution photos (20 MP vs 9.7 MP), significantly higher maximum light sensitivity (25,600 ISO vs 6,400 ISO), has a slightly larger sensor (nikon CX 13.2x8.8mm vs 1/2.3" 6.17x4.55mm) and has a significantly longer battery life (370 shots vs 265 shots).

However, on average it doesn't shoot as fast continuously (10 fps vs 24 fps), doesn't have a screen which flips out, users slower contrast detection autofocus (contrast detection vs phase detection), has slightly fewer focus points (49 vs 315) and is older (june 2018 vs september 2018).
