  • I've owned the X Vario for about 18 months and the X 113 for about 6 months.  I also own an M-E and an M Monochrom along with a quartet of M lenses (28, 35, 50 and 90mm). Since the Q came out, I've ...
  • Another happy X owner (and X Vario as well).

    These cameras are not competitive on featur, specs or price. Where they excel is in their design and handling, as well as the image quality (it's all...

  • M5 has a much better meter than M6.  8% spot, none of that averaging nonsense.
  • I love my XV. Image quality in black and white actually comes close to My M Monochrom and of course the XV does far better in color. Not the best for low light, but otherwise an outstanding ...
  • There are also people with neither system trying to settle into one or the other.  I'm a Leica shooter (M Monochrom) but want a DSLR for travel.  I favor the Nikon Df, but the Canon 6D is much ...
