New Leica X not what I thought. Better

Posted on by Mike Evans

The newly introduced Leica X is not, as I thought, upgraded X2. It is an X Vario with a fixed 23mm Summilux (f/1.7) lens and a revised hotshoe to accept the Visoflex EVF first seen on the T. It is an impressive camera and, particularly for anyone who is happy with a single angle of view, it is almost preferable to the T with the 23mm 'Cron. At £1,550 it is well priced to sell and will attract many former X2 owners. The only downside is that it is larger and heavier than competitors such as the X100T and requires the bulk-adding viewfinder.
