Leica X2

PC Magazine
15 June 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.

Leica X2 review

What Digital Camera
10 June 2012
  • Summary: High-quality compact-sized cameras were few and far between when the X1 was released, and that made it a tempting (if pricey) proposition. Today, however, the market the X2  enters has changed considerably. Not only have we seen the arrival of a host of high-end creative compacts, namely the Fujifilm X100 and the Canon PowerShot G1 X , but there's also the burgeoning Compact System Camera market, where you'll find comparable sized models such as the Panasonic GX1 and...

Leica X2 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: In what is becoming a very competitive and overlapping market, the Leica X2 stands out as a high-quality, well-built camera, with a sharp lens and good image quality at low sensitivities. Sadly, however, the X2 has in many ways arrived a few years too late. Cameras such as the Fujifilm FinePix X100 will provide strong competition, and many photographers will instead opt for a compact system camera.

Leica X2 review

Stuff.tv
17 August 2012
  • Summary: The X2 is Leica’s update of 2010’s X1 , a retro-flavoured, large sensor camera that we adored but felt was a little too limiting to appeal to the masses. It’s not a fundamental change, to be quite honest. The most obvious upgrades are the APS-C sensor (upped to 16.2 megapixels from 12.2), a faster autofocus, a longer-lasting battery and a pop-up flash that extends a little higher than the old one.

Leica X2 review

Pocket Lint
20 July 2012
  • Excerpt: The Leica X2 is a bit like the Ferrari of the camera world. It looks gorgeous, has some enviable features, but it’s also extortionately expensive. And it’s that last point that will price it out of most people's reach.
  • 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

  • Summary: Her ligger X2’s eneste problem. Det er dyrere end X100, som leverer samme høje billedkvalitet og har integreret søger. Men sidstnævnte er også større og tungere end X2, som har bedre billedkvalitet og autofokus, og ikke mindst er lille nok til, at det kan være i jakkelommen. I forhold til mine indledende ord om X2 er det rasende billigt.
  • Pros: Billedkvalitet i topklasse, Skarp optik, Høj kvalitet, Adobe Lightroom 4 licens
  • Cons: Kan ikke lagre kun råfiler, Lille, lavopløst skærm, Høj pris
