  • Thanks friend! I agree about XV skin tones being unmatched. I took an M 240 with 35mm & 90mm Sumimicrons for a spin this past weekend.  Now I have a rangefinder (and Leica glass) itch (although it ...
  • +1 for #1. Rodrigue, how do you feel the M9 colors compare to the XV? These are great! Cheers
  • +1 for the ONA Bowery.  The bag is well made, and is tall enough to support the EVF attached. I used it with an X Vario w/ grip, and separately with a T, and you can arrange the camera to be either ...
  • I had an X Vario and mine felt/sounded the same as you describe.  So did the store's version that I initially sampled. It works wonderfully however. I think you hit the reasoning on the head. The ...
  • Unfortunately, the EVF delay is long enough to disconnect the photographer from the subject and make it difficult to "capture a fleeting moment", something Leica has been renown for. I do hope that ...
  • This is good advice.  I, too, have a T, and moved up from an X Vario.  Frankly, I am underwhelmed with the OOC output of the T (with either lens) comparatively.  The X Vario files seem tohave much ...
  • Hi, Are you still looking for a Leica x vario? I have a very nice one that is loaded with accessories for only $1,700: Leica X Vario with/ box & papers Olympus EVF Leica hand grip Leica wrist strap ...
  • You are not an idiot at all. The X Vario really is a very fine camera, despite it's small quirks. It is quite seductive, and you will form an emotional bond with it - from it's warm wonderful Image ...
  • Follow your heart.  You won't regret it. The build quality, versatility, handling and image quality will make you form an emotional bond with the XV that will become addicting.  Everything ...
  • When using Auto ISO, the XV also steps up/down into "in-between" ISO settings (e.g., 1000).  I have to look at the shutter speed info on my EXIF data to answer your specific question.  Suffice it ...
  • This Leica X Vario kit is still available. I can send more detailed photos to anyone who is interested. I will also include a very nice ONA Bowery bag (Field Tan). Like new - Barely used. Everythin ...
  • This complete kit is in excellent condition and includes: ...................................ITEM............................................ STREET PRICE (new) (1) Leica X Vario Type 107 Camera ...
  • Beautiful rendering. Beautiful wife. Great camera too. You are one lucky guy! Cheers.
  • Haha, ditto my friend. I can feel your similar passion for photography and the XV, both in your photos and your words Rodrigue. I, too, now look for stupid reasons to take photos with this camera. ...
  • Great choice.  I am sure you will enjoy having such versatility and great image quality without needing to change lenses.  I highly recommend the EVF (Olympus version is fine), lens hood (for lens ...
  • To me, the Olympus EVF also looks better on the XV, being more blacked out without that loud, white LEICA label.  But that's a matter of personal taste.   I am a guy who also covered my camera's ...
  • An X Vario will complement your Canon very well, btw. To me, it is liberating to have such versatility & high quality optics in a one-stop-shopping (non-interchangable) zoom package. Camera is ...
  • The X Vario is 100% a Leica. It's build quality, handling, sharp lens and image quality come with 100% Leica DNA.  Don't be fooled by chatter, or confused with their lower-line camera partnerships. ...
  • Let me know if you are ever in NYC my friend.
  • The XV half case seems to provide an adequate grip as well as some in-use protection for the camera body (and prevents accidentally pressing that D pad). The XV (with hand grip or 1/2 case ...
