Also well indoors in daylight.

I made a few comparisons to images I captured with the Leica X1, and the X Vario shows a slight improvement over those as well.

Build Quality appears to be excellent.

My review of the Leica X-VARIO

I have only had the camera a few weeks (about 600 shots) now and my opinion on some aspects may change once I have more time with the camera.

Initial Impression On Announcement
My initial impression on Leica's announcement was very negative. I thought it would be too heavy, too slow (AF), and too slow a lens and I felt it was over priced for what it had to offer. In general, I have always been impressed with Leica glass but not so impressed with their ability in electronics and in particular in firmware development. It seems to me that they were and still are way too slow to address issues that were either missed or in the rush to get a product shipping, they decided to ignore for a future date fix. A really big negative was the lack of a built in view finder.

Nonetheless, I decided to purchase the camera and see how it performed in the real world. I had read Sean Reid's, Jonathan Slack's, and Steve Huff's reviews and several others. Consistently, among all of the reviews was the theme that the lens quality was excellent, perhaps approaching that of prime lenses. Secondly, was build quality that felt solid in the hand and like a quality built product. Lastly, image IQ was also rated as excellent. I owned an X100s that I sold just prior to buying the X-VARIO and I also owned a Sony RX-1 that I sold earlier.

Given this background you are probably wondering why I purchased the X-VARIO. The reasons are as follows:
First, I wanted a zoom lens covering wide angle to portraiture. My preference would have been 24mm to 120mm with an f2 to f4.5 that was high enough quality to rate a 26-30 on DXO mark's lens review.

Notes: This review covers my use of the new Leica X Vario camera for general-purpose photography, shooting JPEG format images only. I have owned the Leica M4-2 and M6 film cameras, with a 50mm fixed lens for the former and a 35mm fixed lens for the latter. I purchased the Leica X1 compact camera in early 2010, and used it for nearly 3 years before donating it to a photo club in Ohio. The X Vario is similar in many ways to the X1, given that both are digital cameras made in-house by Leica in Germany. There is also much resemblance between the X Vario and the 'M' film cameras in their heavy-duty construction, and the large heavy lens assembly of the X Vario in particular. The X1 by comparison has a fairly small lens assembly that pops out when the camera is switched on and collapses when the camera is switched off.

Since the X Vario costs $2850 USD and is a simple camera with a short zoom range lens (28mm to 70mm in 135 equivalence), people who are not familiar with Leica or their raison d'etre might find the price shocking. Looking at this from a Leica owner's perspective, the next step up from the X Vario is the M9, which costs about $12000 to $13000 for camera with similar lens, and the next step up from that is the S2, which sells for approx. $30000 without lens. If you were thinking to buy one of these Leica cameras made in-house by Leica in Germany, based on its specifications as compared to other popular brands such as Fuji, Nikon, or Ricoh et al, then you would probably not want to consider the Leica any further because of the large price difference for comparable specifications.

Verified Purchase
Beautifully built, gorgeous image quality. Autofocus slow (not good for moving targets), and the image stabilization is pathetic compared to Olympus or Nikon. A camera for landscapes or posing people. Not good in low light. Can't handle glare well (this may be because it isn't designed to use filters and doesn't come with a lens hood (things improved when I bought an extortionately priced hood). It does fabulously in broody, cloudy daytime (think daytime in New England, Holland, England, Scotland, Germany). Also well indoors in daylight. Wonderful detail and those gorgeous Leica colors. The build quality a treat. Battery life is decent. The upper dials have a tendency to get budged to the wrong settings when you are wearing gloves or just absent minded (say on a walk, or chasing elusive family members at a gathering). No ability to lock them on auto. It is wonderful to have such a small camera with such image quality. The haters who trash this camera forget that IQ is, after all, the most important thing in a camera. The reason why I've kept it, and why it's become my favorite camera, despite it's deficiencies. I just can't afford the M system.

Something fishy: when I tried to download the Lightroom software that come with it, from Leica they said that it had already been downloaded twice. Made me wonder if I had been sold a regifted camera....or what.....Still waiting to hear from Leica what the story is. I think the image quality of the Xi is better, but the versatility of the 28-70 focal length is better for travel, and the auto focus is better, for sure.
