Leica X2 review

 

The X2 is Leica's update of 2010's X1 , a retro-flavoured, large sensor camera that we adored but felt was a little too limiting to appeal to the masses. It's not a fundamental change, to be quite honest. The most obvious upgrades are the APS-C sensor...

Leica X2

 

The Leica X2 is a bit like the Ferrari of the camera world. It looks gorgeous, has some enviable features, but it's also extortionately expensive. And it's that last point that will price it out of most people's reach. We love the Leica X2, but it's a...

Looks great, improved autofocus, much better battery life, manual dials (now firmer), sharp lens, good image quality, download copy of latest Adobe Lightroom included in the price

Pricey, no close-up focus, small and low-resolution screen, no ND filter (built-in or lens-mountable), won’t suit the average consumer, image quality (although good) isn’t any better than a high-end compact system camera

We love the Leica X2, but it’s a far cry from a mainstream camera and, therefore, won’t be suited to many of our readers. However, it’s this distinctiveness that makes it a desirable camera.
