The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Impeccable construction, simplicity, immediate feeling, optical although not very bright excellent, photographic yield, raw in DNG format, versatility.
Cons:Unluminous lens but nothing dramatic, autofocus at low lights bad, lack of viewfinder.
Opinion:The camera is very pleasant to use, simple, direct, no frills, in pure Bauhaus style the shape follows the function. It's versatile, small, and the raw files are exceptional and easily workable, without the artifacts of some newer cameras. Too bad for the lack of the viewfinder, which is available as an optional at the prices that unfortunately we know well. The only real flaw is the autofocus in the absence of good lighting, but on the other hand focus is effective and pleasant to use.
Pros:Easy-to-use camera, reduced to the bone menu, ideal for those who have used analog for years. fantastic lens with manual focus.
Cons:Expensive object, but with strong depreciation in the used, rare thing with the brand Leica, perhaps causes bad reviews, which were based more on technical data than on seeing the photo generated by this little gem. You notice a battery life a little short (if you have a new one?)
Opinion:I came across a great used at the Leica Store, so with a year of warranty, excellent build quality, very clean design that you hold well in your hand. The set of optics, sensor and processor allows you to retaliate with very sharp photos all over the frame with the classic Leica signature, for colors and three-dimensionality. Not suitable for photos with fast-moving subjects cause autofocus not suitable, there is still a great manual focus, which makes it really fun. Object to prove at the cost of the current used; I can guarantee that it will make you want to photograph. The Leica X Vario was introduced in 2013, heir to the famous Digilux2 resembling the zoom and quietness of the shot, but different for the sensor along with the higher ISO. A final consideration, of X Vario have been sold few, but much appreciated by those who own them. Strange?
Pros:Image quality, jpeg and raw; aesthetics; materials; optics.
Cons:Autofocus, dark optic, no viewfinder.
Opinion:I had this Leica for a short time, then resold for a FF and could not afford two cars. How love, and how you hate! It is a machine for reflexive shots, landscapes, portraits and still life. The picture quality is amazing as well as the dynamic range. It looks like an FF. Impossible to use for moving photos, autofocus is really embarrassing. I used it with an Olympus viewfinder that I strongly recommend, looks bad and the risk of out of focus is very high. "I'm sorry to have sold her, stupendous, heavy, aesthetically impeccable, worthy of being kept for daily exits. The optics are dark and in the evening you feel a lot of this fault but the raw are workable and well at 3200 iso, above no, do not believe the miracles. Anyone who has it has to keep it, it is worth all the money spent.
Pros:E 'became my "first" camera. I do everything with it. I sold the M240 because the manual focus for me was complicated because of a problem in his left eye. I do not regret. The X Vario has given me the joy of photographing. A robust and refined material body, with an M-like design with the addition of the viewfinder (required if you want jno comprehensive tool) allows to solve any picture taking. The 28-70 is not very bright but it does not create any major problems, since it can take up to 3200 at full aperture without loss of quality. The versatile and not interchangeable lens causes the sensor is not exposed to dust. The compact size of the machine makes the device suitable for use on any occasion. The menu is exceptionally simple and intuitive controls easily accessible. The battery lasts a long time and the finish of the instrument are taken care maniacally. The X-Vario files are vibrant, sharp and three-dimensional, and do not requirespecial touches, even in jpeg. Another feature: the X-Vario croppati files can be up to 4x with no loss of quality, so the 28-70 Vario-Elmar miraculously becomes a 28-280. I had Nikon 750 and I still Olympus OMD1 optic Pro; but the Leica X Vario belongs to another planet. Do not listen to the reviews of the pseudo-gurus who know everything about photography. I photograph for 54 years and I must say that for me the X-Vario is my final acchiani, as at the time was the M3. Also the used price is hyper convenient; It is located at 1200-1300 euro: a bargain.
Cons:I have paid € 2450 and now worth half because of talkers reviewers that internet shoot judgments based on lines per mm. a resolution. Leica has a charm all its own. The Leica photographs do not follow the laboratory parameters; they possess a depth of color and a shadow color that no other brand can give to their optics.
Opinion:Perfect. I meet all over. With it I Street, environmental portrait (from 35mm. To 70mm), scenery, static photography, food and nature. It 's always with me. I do not ever sell it. The optical quality is comparable to that of the Leica T (have the same APS-C sensor), only in T (and now in TL) it is possible to change the objectives and also mount lenses M and R, but lost the immediacy of 'AF. I with X-Vario do too close up shot, mounting additional lenses (only 70mm focal.). I find 'the beautiful solution of the transition between AF and MF simply by rotating the focus ring to focus.
Pros:Excellent quality of the lens at all apertures in the center and the edge frame, robust body and refined materials, files marked with micro-contrast and three-dimensionality Leica zoom handyman, light and portable.
Cons:EVF mandatory expensive (I went around the problem with that Olympus used a nominal price)
Opinion:I waited a year to make a review of this camera because I wanted to make a fool of those who have criticized without ever using it. I can now claim to have in our hands a great camera sharpness superb and that provides an image quality worthy of the name Leica. The brightness for those who are not sports photos is a false problem, you can easily shoot up to ISO 3200, how many times have we read of obb. Pro "diaphragm just two stops and you have the highest quality" and here the problem does not arise (honestly how many photos do to 1.4 with 1.8 sec ....). The choice of Leica has been to think of a quality camera but always discreet and those who make street can not help but appreciate (when I see friends canikon with 5.4 kg in the neck and zoom / guns feel human piety). Of course it is not the cheapest camera on the market but if you want the quality Leica ...... rnConcludo saying that the reviews that are on the network are not to niente reliable, trust most 'of your eyes that certain "professors"!
