Summary: Well, despite the negative reviews, I think this is a great camera. I own it while I also have a Leica M240 and Canon 5d mark III. I needed something slim and light enough to carry always and use my existing M lenses and to get the quality of photos, the 'leica look' I prefer.
Summary: A fine "thing". A less fine camera. I suppose I have been spoiled out of the box with my first camera being an RX1R. Yes call that AND the Leica-T "yuppie" camera and you might be right except for that the RX1R's output bested many of the professional photos from a wedding I took it to.
Summary: PROS: -Sleek, finely polished design -excellent touchscreen -competitive price for a Leica CONS: -Slightly fiddly AF -expensive lenses -Doesn’t do enough to justify its price But there are better ways to spend this amount of money. Take a look at this one: http://amzn.to/1GM956f
Summary: I would have given it two and a half stars but the only choice was 2 or 3 stars. I got this camera to replace a Leica X-Vario. I had high hopes that Leica had improved the processor speed and that this would result in better performance.
Summary: Leica T is a art work in body design with an auto manufacturer's badge on its box. The software gets glitchy in a few days and the WIFI rarely connects. The body is easily prone to damage (surprisingly!). In 3 months, it looks like an aged iPod.
Summary: Since you’re reading this it’s safe to assume that the idea of owning a Leica T has crossed your mind. To save you time I’ll sum things up. This is the only review you’ll need. Hold a T in your hands and you’ll know at once whether or not the camera is right for you. It really is that simple.
Summary: We've had the camera for a few weeks. Built quality is very impressive. With the 18-56 T lens, the images are very sharp and noise free up to ISO 1600, and usable at ISO 3200. Touch screen is beautiful, even in bright day light. Interface is very well designed.
Summary: I love the Leica T system. It is my favorite camera/system that I have used (I have experience with other ILC systems like the Fuji and the Panasonic, some DSLRs, as well as other Leica compacts such as the X1 and the X2).
Summary: This is a beautiful camera, but despite the aluminium housing, the touch screen is very fragile. The screen on my camera cracked within two weeks, and Leica has been very difficult about this, insisting that it was my fault and that I had "impacted" the camera in some way.
