If you’re looking for a more affordable compact camera that still has high-standards and sufficient settings, the Leica X2 is the one for you. The handmade X2 features an APS-C CMOS image sensor that allows 16.2MP pictures to be taken. The image sensor is unusually large for a camera that is apparently a member of the ‘compact’ segment. The X2 will come with a Leica Elmarit 24mm f/2.8 ASPH lens and the company states that the autofocus system has apparently been enhanced. Also available on the compact camera are the automatic and various manual settings which can be inter-selected with ease.
In live view mode, the X2 features a 2.7-inch monitor that apparently offers complete control with a bright and detailed view even in bright light. According to the press release, the Leica X2’s design is one that is reminiscent of the company’s older Leica M cameras; that along with the “robust, all-metal construction and premium high-grip leather trim makes the X2 a classic Leica camera in both looks and feel.” There are a plethora of accessories that will be launched after the camera is released but for now, you can pre-order it here in either black or silver colors or you can head over to a Leica Store to get more information.
