Excerpt: I Received my Leica X Vario 28-70 a few days ago. I was hoping and expecting more from Leica with this entry into the compact point and shoot APC-C sized sensor 16-17 MP AF short zoom camera field. The resolution is excellent, but still not quite the best in class. Another issue is that it takes a lot of work to get quality photos. This is due in no small part to the lack of an optical IS in the lens.
Pros: Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD
Cons: No Viewfinder, Poor Image Stabilization, Poor in Low Light
