Re: Leica X1 and brief hands-on
Sep 9, 2009

I am WAY disappointed! Ever since I helped to launch Leica's first all-in-one product catalogue about 10 years ago, I do have an affection for this company and their products.

While the full-frame M9 is long overdue and welcome, the idea of producing their own fixed-lens APS-C compact is ... not a good idea.

If they had choosen to create their own version of a GF1 - yes, go for the dials, go for a EVF, do what ever it needs to make it disinct - but stay with the MFT sensor/mount so you will be able to sell your lenses to a much wider target group then you will be able to sell your X1. Yes, I know Leica will build a MFT-lens, but in my opinion, that is one step too short.

I seriously hope I'm all wrong, but I doubt it. To sad for such an Icon.

One last thing: the web cast was a shame.
