A welcome addition? Absolutely! A game changer? It’s not quite the mini Leica M that many had hoped for, but equipped with a newly developed 16.1 megapixel, APS-C CMOS sensor and fixed 18-46 mm/3.5-6.4 (28-70 mm equivalent) Elmar zoom, the X Vario is sure to meet and surpass the demands of many photographers.
This is a capable camera ideal for travel, recording family events, and capturing those unforgettable candid moments filled with meaning and significance. Its Elmar zoom holds true to the credo of Leica optics: critical sharpness, rich tonality, and that certain you’ll-know-it-when-you-see-it Leica look. Unfortunately, its decidedly slow maximum aperture of 3.5 at 18mm and 6.4 at 46mm, makes it incapable of doing something I've always done with Leicas: open up the aperture and shoot in low light!
Auto focus throughout the zoom range, is fast and precise. The X Vario also serves up full-HD video at 1920 x 1080 pixels and 30 fps that can be saved in an MP4 format permitting direct uploading to social media and mobile devices. Optional accessories include handgrip, lens hood, ever ready case, a half-case protector, and wrist and neck straps.
If low-light performance is not critical to your photography, then this flexible, compact, and portable APS-C Leica may be the camera for you.
