Leica T

 

Leica's new CSC is expensive, stylish and that's about it

Sleek, finely polished design, excellent touchscreen, competitive price for a Leica

Slightly fiddly AF, expensive lenses, Doesn’t do enough to justify its price

Leica T review

 

A back to basics compact system camera from the premium manufacturer

High quality build ; Simple control ; Leica reputation

High price ; Limited number of lenses currently available

It's good to see Leica embracing new technologies and new ways of controling a camera to give it greater appeal for the next generation of well-heeled photographers.

Leica T (typ 701)

 

With a body machined from a single solid block of aluminium that is said to be hand-polished for 45 minutes, and a design done in coordination with Audi Design, the Leica T is both pleasing to the eye and a pleasure to use. This CSC has an APS-C 16.5MP...

Leica T (Type 701) review

 

The Leica T probably wasn't what most people were expecting when they imagined a Leica CSC. The lack of an M mount, viewfinder and control buttons will no doubt mean that many photographers write this camera off without even picking it up, which would...

There's no denying that Leica's first foray in to the compact system camera market won't be to everyone's taste.

Leica T camera hands-on review

 

Leica's new T-System digital camera may have one of the most tedious ads ever made, but the camera's looks are far from boring.

Leica T camera

 

One of the most stylish, well designed cameras you will ever meet

Style ; Build quality ; Picture quality

Expensive camera ; Expensive lenses and accessories ; Wi-Fi didn't work for us

Leica's focus on creating a minimalist unit with a dominant touchscreen interface challenges us to re-think the way we interact with a camera's settings. For the most part, it works. You get used to this idea of on-screen control, and that's because...

Leica T (Typ 701) review

 

There are more affordable and even better options than the Leica T, but you aren't buying just any ordinary camera.

The Leica T, like many Leica products, can be a mixed bag. It raises expectations about unprecedented quality with its shiny metal body and high retail price, but quickly disappoints when it comes to the most basic functions such as the lack of an...

Leica T (Typ 701)

 

The Leica T (Typ 701) features a stunning aluminum unibody design, but it's not as robust as its price tag implies.

Stunning design. Integrated Wi-Fi. Big 3.7-inch touch-screen LCD. Customizable interface. 16GB internal storage. Supports in-camera charging and includes external charger. Come with Adobe Lightroom license.

Expensive. Slow autofocus. No Android companion app. Proprietary strap system.

Conclusions The Leica T (Typ 701) is absolutely beautiful, and I applaud the company for its forward-thinking design. Once I got used to the customizable menus, dual control dials, and touch-screen interface, I found that taking control of the camera...
