Ming, thank you VERY MUCH!!!

Your review suggesting X2> X1 ( http://blog.mingthein.com/2012/05/11/leica-review-1/ ), along with another one very favourably comparing the X1 to the X100 ( http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2011/05/23/my-leica-x1-and-fuji-x100-comparison-photos-and-my-thoughts/ ), has made me think twice recently before rushing to get an E-M5 instead of a Leica as a street complement to my sweet Oly E-5 & Zuiko 4/3 system...

While the handier Fuji X or Oly OM-D were just a vague whimsical desire at first, I now dream of Leica; of course, for the brand name itself and the obvious craftsmanship it entails (who wouldn't, in all honesty?), but also for the immodest qualities of its lens and for the rare subtlety of its color processor, all that via a creativity-inducing streamlined interface.

Moreover, glad to read that the AF and sensor have been greatly improved upon from the X1 days, yet hoping that the unbelievable 3D-like images of said predecessor will remain (!?)

Take care,
