Summary: If you want a camera for the sake of letting people know that you have enough money to waste, buy this Leica. The truth of the matter is that this camera does NOT perform any better than something like a Sony NEX-3 or any Nikon CoolPix camera costing 3-5 times less money. To top things off, the camera is slow in every respect. The slow zoom is particularly frustrating and is actually slower than many low end digital cameras costing $100.
Summary: I bought a leica X1 camera from the amazon website for my travel( Verk.Nr.18420,Fabr.Nr.03995018 ), when I back home after the trip , I check the photos, I was shocked, each photograph has two distinct spots, camera lens is clean, then there must be a problem inside the camera. Hard to imagine, Amazon sold me a leica with quality problem, this camera also signed with quality assurance , It has destroyed the entire photographic journey .
