Leica X Vario

7 November 2013
  • Conclusion: This may not have been the Leica you were looking for. However, the Leica X Vario still pleasantly surprised us, especially after all the naysayers panned the camera for what it wasn't, even before they got their hands on one! So what is the X Vario exactly, and who is it for? First off, the Leica X Vario is a precision-engineered piece of photographic machinery geared for purists.
  • Pros: Beautiful, simple camera design that carries forth the classic Leica look and feel, Well-made, clearly defined physical controls, including a manual focus ring that switches over to AF mode with a soft click, Striking still image quality that rivals top APS-C DSLRs, Incredible hue accuracy and realistic color saturation, Excellent high ISO performance with pleasing film-like grain at the upper reaches; even delivers a good 5 x 7 print at max ISO 12,500, Very sharp 28-...

Leica X Vario (Typ 107)

PC Magazine
12 August 2013
  • Conclusion: The Leica X Vario (Typ 107) camera marries a zoom lens to a big APS-C image sensor, but its slow lens and high price make it a tough sell.
  • Pros: APS-C image sensor. 5fps burst shooting. Includes leather strap. Supports accessory EVF. Stellar build quality. Sharp rear LCD. Snappy autofocus in good light. Excellent manual focus experience. Detailed JPG output through ISO 6400. Includes Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
  • Cons: Very expensive. Big lens offsets compact body design. Modest light-gathering capability. No optical image stabilization. Edges and corners are not tack sharp. Some rolling shutter motion artifacts in video. No mic input.

  • Conclusion: Straight from the camera, raw file skin tones look a little too vibrant, but this would only take a moment to adjust to taste using the supplied Lightroom 5 software.

Leica X Vario review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: For the discerning photographer (with deep pockets) the Leica X Vario produces good image quality from a small, lightweight body. Initially it is hard not to be frustrated by the relatively small maximum aperture of the camera's fixed zoom lens, especially when many of its comeptitors have fixed f/2 lenses or larger.

TechRadar UK
11 June 2013
  • Excerpt: There's been much rumour and speculation that Leica might be about to produce a compact system camera, a smaller version of the full-frame Leica M with a 1.3x crop factor sensor like the Leica M8, or maybe an APS-C format sensor , but that is still compatible with M-mount lenses. The company's recent teaser campaign prior to the announcement of the Leica X Vario that referred to the "Mini M" sent many Leica lovers into overdrive.

30 April 2014
  • Summary: Die Leica X Vario ist eine Kompaktkamera, die nicht kompakt ist, für deren Preis von 2.450 Euro man auch in der Oberliga der System- und Spiegelreflexkameras fündig wird, die aber in der Ausstattung bewusst nur das absolute Minimum bietet. So ist sie sicherlich keine Kamera für die breite Masse, aber Leica-Enthusiasten und Menschen, die sich an erlesener Technik erfreuen möchten.
  • Pros: Hochwertig verarbeitetes Gehäuse, Einfache Bedienbarkeit auch manuell, Ausgewogene und gute Bildqualität, Adobe Lightroom im Lieferumfang
  • Cons: Langsamer Autofokus, Wegen des kleinen Pufferspeichers nur kurze Serien möglich, Geringer Ausstattungsumfang, Lichtschwaches Objektiv
