Leica D Vario-Elmar 14-150mm f/3.5-5.6 Asph. OIS - Review / Test Report

 

So is the Leica 14-150mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS you'd take that that lonely tropical island (if you could take just one) ? Yep, it could be the one although it's not totally flawless but then no lens is. However, it is both sharp and contrasty throughout the...

Leica X Vario review

 

For the discerning photographer (with deep pockets) the Leica X Vario produces good image quality from a small, lightweight body.Initially it is hard not to be frustrated by the relatively small maximum aperture of the camera's fixed zoom lens,...

Leica X Vario (Typ 107)

 

The Leica X Vario (Typ 107) camera marries a zoom lens to a big APS-C image sensor, but its slow lens and high price make it a tough sell.

The X Vario is a pretty snappy performer, and is another sign that Leica is no longer producing digital cameras that are on the slow side. It starts and shoots in about 1.8 seconds, can grab a burst of seven photos at 5 frames per second, and manages a...

Leica D Vario Elmar 14-150mm f3.5-5.6

 

10x zooms often look good on paper, but disappoint with their performance or handling – the Leica 14-150mm isn’t one of them.

Leica Vario-Elmar-T 18-56mm f/3.5-5.6

 

The Leica Vario-Elmar-T 18-56mm f/3.5-5.6 captures excellent images and is quite compact, but it's too expensive for what it is.

Compact. Sharp through zoom range. Minimal distortion. Great build quality

Expensive. Lacks optical stabilization. Edges a little soft at widest angle. Some color fringing when shooting JPG

The Leica Vario-Elmar-T 18-56mm f/3.5-5.6 ($1,750) is one of a pair of lenses that launched with the T (Typ 701) mirrorless camera. It's not Leica's first attempt at an autofocusing zoom with this range—the X Vario uses a similar zoom lens—but it's the...

Leica X Vario (Typ 107)

 

The Leica X Vario (Typ 107) camera marries a zoom lens to a big APS-C image sensor, but its slow lens and high price make it a tough sell.

APS-C image sensor. 5fps burst shooting. Includes leather strap. Supports accessory EVF. Stellar build quality. Sharp rear LCD. Snappy autofocus in good light. Excellent manual focus experience. Detailed JPG output through ISO 6400. Includes Adobe...

Very expensive. Big lens offsets compact body design. Modest light-gathering capability. No optical image stabilization. Edges and corners are not tack sharp. Some rolling shutter motion artifacts in video. No mic input.

The menus are text based and utterly straightforward. Navigation is responsive; there's no delay between tapping buttons and seeing the results on the 3-inch rear display. That LCD is excellent; I had no problems seeing the live view feed when shooting...

Leica Vario X first to use a zoom lens on an APS-C compact

 

The expensive Vario X camera does have a zoom lens, but it's a surprisingly slow lens.
