official leica x vario samples 550x342It was only recently that Leica took the wraps off their latest camera, the Leica X Vario which according to the spec list, will sport a 16.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor that is paired with a f/3.5-6.4 18-46mm zoom lens. As expected of Leica cameras, this bad boy does not come cheap and photographers looking to pick it up will have to pay upwards of $2,850 for the pleasure of owning the camera themselves. We’re sure some of you guys are wondering about the quality of images that can be captured with the X Vario, especially with Leica’s reputation on the line. Well the good news is that if you were a bit shy about stepping into the shop and playing with a $2,850 camera you weren’t planning on purchasing, Leica Netherlands has published 21 full-res JPEG sample images on its website which have been captured using the X Vario. The images are stunning and look incredibly sharp, clear, and detailed, although we wouldn’t have imagined anything less for the price you are paying. Of course good photos will rely on more than just the tool, but for photographers looking to take it to the next level, perhaps the Leica X Vario might be worth your consideration. Head on over to Leica’s Flickr account for the rest of the images.
