The essence of photography

Leon F, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I didn't purchase this camera through BH though I would like to give a review. Some background: I have used a Leica MP with 35 mm ASPH Summicron and a 50 Elmarit from the 1960's for 9 years so I was fully aware of the Leica quality. I also still own various Leitz Focomat enlargers and had my own darkroom for a few years. The MP was an amazing camera, probably the best 35 mm camera ever made but I ended up selling it because it was not practical for me anymore.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact

As Hoped and Expected

  • Excerpt: I use this as a more compact alternative to lugging around my Canon DSLR. I shoot RAW mostly in black and white, street photography, and family/pet daily life pictures. I did considerable research before I bought it at several sites, comparing it to other mirrorless compacts with APS-C sensors.
  • Pros: Small / Compact
  • Cons: Poor LCD

Fantastic Compact Camera

PJRiowa, B&H Photo
25 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this camera at B&H in July and after 5-6 weeks of use, I absolutely love it. I bought it wanting a high-quality compact camera to serve as a backup to my SLRs. But, the opposite has become the case as I grab the X2 first in more and more situations. And while it is a compact, it is not a small, toy-like camera; the X2 feels like a real camera while being very discreet and easy to take anywhere.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Great color, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
  • Cons: No Viewfinder, Short Battery Life

Everything it's meant to be

European, B&H Photo
3 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Like many people, I was torn between the FujiFilm X100s and the Leica X2. I am so pleased that I went with the latter. What's more - I don't even know why I was so torn! After all, the two cameras are totally different...The FujiFilm is a modern, deeply automatic camera - and I think it's probably quite a good camera, too. The viewfinder is what should help everyone pick.

  • Excerpt: Now I know what the Leica look is all about. There is a 3-D look to it. In 60 years of photography, I have never been so impressed with a camera. I have used Rolleflex, Nikon F100, pentax 645 and NikonD5100. But this leica x2 will be all I will use. What I like is how easy it is to use. No complicated menu. It all about taking pictures. My favorite feature is the VIVID setting. Its amazing. If you have ever shot with Fujichrome VELIVIA you will like this setting.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact

Precision and Amazing

Jimbles Notronbo, B&H Photo
18 July 2013
  • Excerpt: A very good and luxurious compact camera. Where it lacks in specs compared to Japanese-made brands (in terms of specs but those aren't everything), it makes up in it's build quality and ease of use and legendary brand.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Limited Zoom

Quality

  • Excerpt: I mostly use the X2 for discrete photography: taking candids at group gatherings (inside or out) or in "street" photography. However, it has also taken on my highly rated, multiple-lensed dSLR for landscape photography as I have found the images to be more lifelike and rich in color and detail with very, very little post-processing (it has allowed me to keep within Lightroom - which comes with the X2 - with occasional minor adjustments to exposure, if that).
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Ergonomics, Good Image Quality, Nice Body Color, Quality Build, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay
