Great control layout, superb images, narrow group of photographers

  • Summary: There are many web reviews of this camera. The best feature is the lens and sensor. While there is a new model, the X2, released in June 2012, the price has come down considerably on this model. The lens has passed sharpness tests and beat models in its class. The lens is not equivalent to the Leica M series lenses which cost 2 to 3 times the cost of this camers, but the lens beats its class.

  • Excerpt: Well balanced in my hands. Reasonable bulk for its purpose. Relatively lightweight. Terrific lens. Resolution and color utterly satisfying. Autofocus a dissapointment despite firmware version 2.0, improved only M/F. For fast shootting, especially in low light situations, stick to manual focusing. Aperture and speed dials tend to turn quite easily. One must check. I only wish this camera had a faster AF and a 35-70 equivalent zoom. In all a star performer. S/N 3813xxx.

Great photo quality and solid camera body

  • Summary: The camera has a great photo quality especially during the low light. They have a big APS-C sensor so the Noise is low in high ISO. The len has f2.8 and great quality pictures. The only drawback is low MP compared to other camera and the price is expensive.

  • Excerpt: I have grown to like this camera having initially thought that I had made an expensive mistake in buying it. Image quality is superb. Great colour, detail and texture. The lens is sharp. Build quality is very good - the camera feels good to hold. You get a free copy of Adobe Lightroom included. An optical viewfinder is essential and is very good though this is another cost.

  • Summary: Yes, it's a little slow to catch a movement, but in most other time, it does a good job. Love to take it with every day.

Leica X1 Camera

  • Summary: Good mid-size camera. However, the aperture and speed dials are unstable. They are easily moved to different position than the one set if inadvertently touuched. Also the single focus square is clumsy to set.

Great images but expensive and very limited use

George, Amazon
11 December 2010
  • Summary: If absolute image quality is more important than money and versatility, this camera is worth a look. It is a camera for people who want classic Leica images, but this is offset by unnecessary and incomprehensible limitations so severe that the camera borders on a joke. The camera is designed to be small, light and take photos comparable to the best 35mm digital cameras. Mostly it succeeds. Useable images are better than all but the most expensive DSLRs.

X1 peeling skin

Hythe, Amazon
2 October 2010
  • Summary: The above in-depth reviews above on the Leica X1 are well considered and comprehensive. But I have been through three X1s due to problems with the X1's quality of finish. The first two both went back to the store because the 'leatherette' skin was peeling off the body. Otherwise, this is a fine little camera and does a superb job.
