maybe its just a camera to be use in B&W while having a drink in a yupi bar. These shots are so flat and boring as it can be done with many other high end P&S cameras. If you look at the new Fuji X P1 or X E1 and still the X100 they all better for less or equal value. The market is full with cameras who can offer such IQ for less than halve what the Leica costs. Is that L symbol realy that much worth?
One of the better galleries of late from DPR.
Because the X1 shots were so great it was easy to knock the X2 as being a step back. These look good to me and in LR the shots could be adjusted to one's personal taste. The X2 at $1995 is high priced but so is the new RX1 (full frame) for $2800+.
Do you really need Leica X2? For those type of shots, what X2 has that any other P&S doesn't have?
