Smallest camera with DSLR quality, but overpriced.

  • Summary: The only true pocket-sized camera with DSLR image quality, but at a very high price in both (missing) features and high cost.
  • Pros: Fantastic image quality, luxury build, intuitive manual controls
  • Cons: 2006-tech LCD, no built-in viewfinder, VERY overpriced

Too expensive for its performance

Utku67, B&H Photo
23 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I did not buy this product from B&H but I will write the review here. First of all the design is excellent. A piece of art to watch for hours. As far as the photographic performance is concerned, the color loyalty to the true situation is excellent too. Sharpness is wonderful. In B&W photography the detail range is wonderful. Out of camera JPEG quality is formidable. And then you may ask me than what my problem is ?
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, No Viewfinder, Poor Image Stabilization

  • Excerpt: This is truly one of a kind artistic design and apart from using it even only looking at it is a pleasure to the eye. But when it comes to functionality I will not be able to say the same. But the menus are very intelligently designed in a very minimalist but in a very efficient way. I think this menu design should set an example to other manufacturers as well. The image quality, loyalty of colors to the original (real) situation and sharpness is examplary.

Price / Quality Ratio is not optimum

Ceyhun "K", Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: I think this camera is highly over rated and certainly does not deserve in anyway the price tag it has. One should consider this price just like being a member in a prestige club and that's it. You would not find any of the features that you would find in cameras which are 1,000 dollars less then this. You can certainly get at least a similar performance from other cameras with less price. I was expecting much more from Leica and I am a bit disappointed.

Already obsolete?

Rob S., Amazon
7 October 2012
  • Summary: Couldn't decide between the Leica X2 and the Fuji X100 so I ordered both :) Bit of background - I've been shooting with D-SLRs since the Nikon D70. My current body is a D300 with the 70-200VR, 17-55DX and 12-24DX. When city touring, lugging all that gear is cumbersome not only when shooting but when traveling: getting it through security, worried about leaving it in your hotel room, etc. These new micro bodies with high quality sensors are right in my wheelhouse.

Leica X2 is a compact little camera with too many issues for it's price.

Digital Adrian, Amazon
21 September 2012
  • Summary: After buying this plus the Olympus Viewfinder ($230), you're better off buying a Canon 5D Mark II ($1,530) plus a Canon 40mm lens ($150). You'll actually SAVE $550 AND get a MUCH BETTER CAMERA! Also consider the FujiFilm X100 which is $900 cheaper and has a built in viewfinder. My other cameras are a Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 5D Mark III and Canon PowerShot S100.

  • Excerpt: Приобрел LEICA X2 в конце июня, как вспомогательную камеру к имеющимся NIKON D 700, с набором оптики, и FUJI S3 PRO, с набором оптики NIKKOR. Предполагалось большое путешествие на лодке по южной части средиземного моря, потом Швейцария (горы, дикая природа), и городская сьемка во Франции и Монако.
  • Pros: Высокое качество фотографий, хороший диапазон ISO, удобная эргономика, хорошая емкая батарея, компактность и удобство использования, эмоционально приятная :)
  • Cons: ОТСУТСТВИЕ СЪЕМНЫХ ОБЪЕКТИВОВ!!! Просто напрашиваются для данной модели. Несуразность цены аксессуаров и видоискателя, неудобные чехлы, ремешки, НЕУДОБНАЯ КОНДОВОСТЬ аксессуаров. НЕДОРАБОТАННАЯ МОДЕЛЬ ПО ЗАВЫШЕННОЙ ЦЕНЕ ОТНОСИТЕЛЬНО КРИТЕРИЯ : ЦЕНА-ВОЗМОЖНОСТИ.

LEICA X 2 : 10000 кадров, миф и реальность.

Сергей Артемов, Onliner
5 August 2012
  • Summary: Приобрел LEICA X2 в конце июня, как вспомогательную камеру к имеющимся NIKON D 700, с набором оптики, и FUJI S3 PRO, с набором оптики NIKKOR. Предполагалось большое путешествие на лодке по южной части средиземного моря, потом Швейцария (горы, дикая природа), и городская сьемка во Франции и Монако. По удобству и эргономике - ну самая обычная привычная компакт камера, привыкаешь быстро и беспроблемно.
  • Pros: Компактность, удобство эргономики, неплохая батарея, неплохое качество съемки в различных экстремальных условиях, продолжение " легенды", эмоционально приятная.
  • Cons: Отсутствие зума ( для меня лично), отсутствие видоискателя, идет как доп опция по неразумной цене, дополнительная ручка несуразна.
