Most importantly, I am really happy with the output.

Once the camera didn't respond to the on/off button, and we had to remove the battery.

Sad this is happening to my favourite camera company.

Color Name: Silver Anodized Aluminum
I love the Leica T system. It is my favorite camera/system that I have used (I have experience with other ILC systems like the Fuji and the Panasonic, some DSLRs, as well as other Leica compacts such as the X1 and the X2). Understand that the T is just "different" in some ways, and quirky in others (just like the M is different in quirky, but in an entirely different way). While the T is more limited in its operations, I find that the camera does a very good job with white balance and exposure settings, so I really do not miss being able to easily fiddle with hardware buttons. The touchscreen is very nice and very usable.

The camera firmware has been very stable. I have only had a few minor issues, which are usually tied to the visoflex viewfinder, and easily fixed with a quick on-off of the camera. Unlike other cameras I have used (Nikon D90, I am looking at you), the T has yet to fail to be ready to take a photograph when I want it to. The battery lasts forever, and is easily charged via USB. While I have an extra battery, I have yet to have to use it. The focus is plenty fast, typical for an ILC. The T has average focus speed, and has some trouble with autofocus in low light conditions, but again, nothing that has bothered me.

Most importantly, I am really happy with the output. The jpgs have plenty of head-room and the raws (with the latest version of Lightroom) can produce some really stellar output. I also find the camera to be very complimentary to using a smart phone. The experience of using the camera (the feeling, the noises, the colors, the fonts, etc.) is superb and unique, just like using a Leica camera should be. The Wifi feature is nice, and connects to Apple devices reliably.

Color Name: Silver Anodized Aluminum
We've had the camera for a few weeks. Built quality is very impressive. With the 18-56 T lens, the images are very sharp and noise free up to ISO 1600, and usable at ISO 3200. Touch screen is beautiful, even in bright day light. Interface is very well designed. Compared to my low-end Nikon DSLR everything is stellar.
Well everything except for the WiFi connection. When WiFi is on, the camera dials may stop responding. Once the camera didn't respond to the on/off button, and we had to remove the battery. And the iOS app is a joke. You can transfer images if you can get the WiFi working but, the maximum image size is about 2 megapixels. I rather use the images I get with my iPhone. Come on Leica: it is 2014! How hard is it to get the WiFi working?

Color Name: Silver Anodized Aluminum
Since you’re reading this it’s safe to assume that the idea of owning a Leica T has crossed your mind. To save you time I’ll sum things up. This is the only review you’ll need. Hold a T in your hands and you’ll know at once whether or not the camera is right for you. It really is that simple.

If you find yourself wondering if the T will provide the greatest bang for the buck, if you have any doubts at all about the best value for your dollar, put it down and move on. Buy a convectional digital camera and save yourself no small amount money. In the long run you’ll be happier.

But if the T stirs emotions deep within you pull out your debit card. The T combines all the latest wiz bang technology with the best of old would craftsmanship. The design is clean and contemporary, not retro as is the case with the Leica digital M mount cameras. The T doesn’t draw its inspiration from the legendary M3, or any other camera. The combination of twenty-first century touchscreen user interface and hand craftsmanship is irresistible. The camera itself is a work of art.

Color Name: Silver Anodized Aluminum
Leica T is a art work in body design with an auto manufacturer's badge on its box. The software gets glitchy in a few days and the WIFI rarely connects. The body is easily prone to damage (surprisingly!). In 3 months, it looks like an aged iPod. Which all ends up in you asking yourself - is this really a Leica?

The timeless reliability factor - the red seal on the face of the camera, did Leica managers decide to dump the timeless values for some extra cash? Why would any company move away from its core competencies just to look a little hip and fancy? Whoever in Leica getting over zealous at making the brand more appealing has already lost touch with the soul of the company & that fact is written all over the T system. Has Leica become a rudder-less ship? Sad this is happening to my favourite camera company.

Color Name: Silver Anodized Aluminum
This is a beautiful camera, but despite the aluminium housing, the touch screen is very fragile. The screen on my camera cracked within two weeks, and Leica has been very difficult about this, insisting that it was my fault and that I had "impacted" the camera in some way. The cost of the repair was just under the cost of the body, leaving me highly dissatisfied with the outcome and Leica's customer service in general. Sold the repaired camera immediately and would never buy Leica again. And for the purists out there, the strap squeaks on its mounting pins.
