Summary: The X Vario is for people who want a simple camera with no excess bells and whistles. Yeah, it costs a lot, but if you value a beautifully made, dependable camera with tremendous image quality, then buy it.
Summary: after a thorough review and hands-on test, we decided to use this Vario for a trip in India and it performed flawlessly. The range of tone, sharpness, etc... has provided amazing pictures (almost as good as a full fledged SLR).
Summary: This is a steep price point for me, and my expectations were high. I'm very, very pleased with the X Vario. I find it extremely easy to use, and the image quality is excellent. I have seen a few naysayers out there, but I personally have nothing but praise for the quality and utility of the X Vario.

Excerpt: I have bought it after a long period of doubts. But the first impressions exceed expectations. Now I have no need in a set of lenses, it is not so heavy as M8-M9, quality of pictures are absolutely perfect. The price is close to good SLR + good lenses, but quality of picture is ... Leica.
Excerpt: The Leica X Vario delivers crisp, sharp images at all focal lengths and apertures without mushing landscape details as does the Fuji X-trans sensor. Color rendition is classic Leica with excellent contrast and saturation right out of the camera which is unlike the dull, flat, pastel color rendition...
