Leica X2

PC Magazine
5 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The Leica X2 is a large-sensor compact camera with a sharp lens and a classic control interface, but it doesn't excel in low light.
  • Pros: Sharp lens. Excellent build quality. EVF add-on option. APS-C image sensor.
  • Cons: Poor rear LCD. No video support. So-so high ISO performance.

The Leica X2 Review by Steve Huff

  • Conclusion: It has now been close to three years since Leica released the X1 and in that time there have been many happy X1 owners as well as many frustrated X1 owners. The flaws of the original were easy to look past when it was released as there was not much else out there to compete against it.

  • Conclusion: It is, however, surprising that a prestigious brand such as Leica uses such a low quality LCD screen in its premier compact camera. The Leica X1 was approved for use by Getty Images, so it was a useful option for professional stock photographers.

Leica X2 – an advanced compact camera with a DSLR-size image sensor – review

Gadgetmania
19 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Leica X2 is great camera but it’s not worth $2,000 – even though it is several thousands cheaper than the M9 Hermés Edition series. The lack in video recording option is hard to overcome even though it had a sensor that could match up to DSLRs.

Leica X2

PhotographyBLOG
2 April 2013
  • Summary: Don't have the need to zoom, swap lenses or shoot video clips, but do have enough cash for a holiday somewhere exotic - or that of a semi pro digital SLR - in your back pocket ready to spend instead on a deliberately compact camera with a build that should last the test of time for considered image...

15 September 2012
  • Summary: Two years ago, I introduced you to the Leica X1, the most beautiful digital camera yet seen, with its stylistic echo of the 1925 Leica 1 model, and ridiculous ease of use and peerless image quality.

  • Summary: Certainly not a leader when it comes to versatility and spec, but the X2 excels as a modernised 35mm street shooter

Leica X2

Pocket Lint
20 July 2012
  • Conclusion: We love the Leica X2, but it’s a far cry from a mainstream camera and, therefore, won’t be suited to many of our readers. However, it’s this distinctiveness that makes it a desirable camera.
  • Pros: Looks great, improved autofocus, much better battery life, manual dials (now firmer), sharp lens, good image quality, download copy of latest Adobe Lightroom included in the price
  • Cons: Pricey, no close-up focus, small and low-resolution screen, no ND filter (built-in or lens-mountable), won’t suit the average consumer, image quality (although good) isn’t any better than a high-end compact system camera
