Ken Rockwell rates X-E1 image quality higher than Leica M9!
Dec 8, 2012

The X-E1 has image quality and lenses more like my LEICA M9 than any DSLR, and it's smaller and lighter than any DSLR — or LEICA. The X-E1 does what the LEICA M9 does well, even better than the M9 does it!

Shooting in JPG, the X-E1's colors should be far better than the LEICA M9 and images are far sharper as well.

Fuji's optics are superior, offering SUMMICRON image quality with SUMMILIX speed, something even LEICA can't do.


How about *that*, Mr. Chambers?

The X-E1 is lighter and quieter than the LEICA M9. The X-E1 allows you to shoot faster, be more discrete and attract less attention. The X-E1 brings back stunning technical quality from a compact, precise, all-metal camera with a minimum of fuss. When you learn it, the X-E1 is simpler and faster to shoot than the M9. Hallelujah!

The X-E1 is what you get when you take the image and lens quality of the LEICA M9, put it in the ergonomically superior Contac G2, and then add a built-in flash. The X-E1 is also worlds better at high ISOs than the LEICA M9.
