Excerpt: Its a Leica!!!... some says, and is a good camera, I like the quality, it works properly, I dont like the colors as on many Leica cameras, can be fixed on post prcessing, but mmm, in black and white are azom, I love how simple and sober the design are, I hate the colapsible type of lenses, why not a...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought this camera without ever seeing one, just on reviews alone, i have to say im very happy! One thing i will say though is that it would be a lot better with the hand grip and Leica could do with improving the screen quality, especially when you want to shoot in manual mode, to be fair though,...
