Excerpt: I've only had this for about 2 weeks but I'm really enjoying it. I love the simplicity of the controls, the feel of the camera in my hands and the super sharp lens. There are no complicated menus with submenus to deal with.
Excerpt: I use this as a travel camera and for casual use when I don't want to bother with my "serious" cameras. My image quality standards are extremely high as I shoot with a Leica M Monochrom and Nikon Df with premium prime lenses on those system cameras, and the X Vario matches them for image quality,...
Excerpt: I recently purchased the X Vario to use as a travel camera and as a color complement to my Leica M Monochrom. The only reasons to buy this camera is for the quality, both in terms of build quality and the image quality it produces.
Summary: Beautifully built, gorgeous image quality. Autofocus slow (not good for moving targets), and the image stabilization is pathetic compared to Olympus or Nikon. A camera for landscapes or posing people. Not good in low light.
Summary: My review of the Leica X-VARIO I have only had the camera a few weeks (about 600 shots) now and my opinion on some aspects may change once I have more time with the camera. Initial Impression On Announcement My initial impression on Leica's announcement was very negative.

Excerpt: Use it as an everyday shooter. Very well built, looks beautiful and gets attention. It's outdoor quality is great. Indoor is not as good in terms of low light. The flash helps but tends to produce overblown photos. All in all, it's a great camera for everyday use.
