is the Leica X Vario a Leica?
5 months ago

I have looked at the Leica X Vario for an upcoming holiday. I like (not love) the camera, but I really get confused when one review says it's a Panasonic with a red dot and $ to match, and another that says it's based on a Panasonic, but with Leica firmware / software and lense - leading to better image quality. I really do enjoy high quality prints and this is why the question is important to me. By the way I am not about to print at AO or open a gallery, but I do print to A2.

I currently have a Canon 50D with good lenses that does the trick for the kids sports and pony club stuff - it works a treat, and I don't have a reason to go full frame. The Leica (or other) is not for replacing the 50D - it will be complimentary.

Any factual advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Canon EOS 50D Leica X Vario
