Summary: Yes, when you get 5 minutes to frame a shot - in perfect conditions - and have those 5 minutes to set up and adjust this camera - the results are terrific. However, I carry this around for casual shooting, and I want to be able to shoot on the fly.
Summary: The Leica X2 is my daily drive. It’s small, stylish, rugged, simple to use and the quality of the images it captures are quite simply stunning. So what’s not to love? Need you ask? It’s a Leica and as such many will balk at the price.

Summary: The only let down about this camera is the lack of an EVF, (which i wasn`t missing till i started using a couple o DSLR`s), the lack of a Handgrip or a decent LCD, yes of course, you can get all of it for merely $600 more or plus, despite that, the quality of the images are superb and at the end of...
Summary: I shot with this camera for one year and loved the simplicity of shooting. The photos were wonderful; rich in color and sharp. I especially liked the spot metering when needed. I have since moved up to a Leica M9, but miss the X2 for a quick point and shoot camera.
Summary: A Rolex doesn't tell time any better than a cheap watch.....a Ferrari doesn't carry the kids to school very well, and a leica doesn't take pictures better than a lot of other cameras. If you don't want to pay the price, then buy a cheaper camera.
Summary: This isn't a technical review; they exist aplenty on the internet already. If you are a Leica fanboy you'll dig this camera; if you're a Leica hater you won't. Things are that simple. I wanted a high quality Leica that shot digital, and the X2 fits the bill.
Summary: For the cost, not worth the purchase. I love my Lecia D - Lux 6 more because of the more options. Also since the X2 received appeared to be used (Battery already installed in the Camera and cosmetic defects like a small scratch on the lcd screen and scratches around the strap rings) even though I...
Summary: A lot of negative reviews on the X2 are based on the fact that the X2 is overpriced, lack of zoom, video, and many popular features available in lower end cameras. Truth is, you pay $2k for the image quality produced by this Leica lens/processor combo.
