Leica X Vario

27th June 2013
Yes I have succumbed to the delights of the Leica X Vario.
Not I admit an immediate choice, as it was only when the first batch arrived in Red Dot and I got a chance to handle one that I started to be seduced. The final straw was Jono Slack's sample DNG images whch he was kind enough to send me (Thanks!)which I printed out for Red Dot with some great 100% crops.
This is a very fine camera!
Beautifully made, solid, with quite a lot of M DNG (!) in it. It looks a bit like a cross between M and X so I suppose that the less-than-perfect advertising campaign had a (small) degree of logic. It was however in my view responsible for quite a lot of the invective aimed at the camera. Strange that now it's out and results are appearing things have quitened down!
