Why are you writing the RICOH GR ii is "one of the smallest fixed lens APS-C cameras currently on the market", when it's by far the smallest ever made??

That screen looks good.

Looks like it can be only tiltable for those who prefer it. And fully articulated for those who prefer that style (by pulling it out from the camera body and rotating it around its own axis).

KAllen: Having never owned a Leica, I can't but help noticing when it comes to Leica products the main thing people can't wait to latch onto is price.
We know Leica are expensive, get over it.
If someone has the money to buy Leica gear it probably means they are not stupid.
Also I find expensive products have a habit of keeping their performance for a long long time, cheaper alternative compete when new, then often drop off with use.
As a camera this looks to be a pretty decent offering and actually does a very good job, in fact for this type of camera there isn't really anything to compare it with. I suspect by the time the mkII arrives it will be extremely good. Well done Leica.

Stoped reading at"Ken Rockwell"

mosc: Leica made a FF fixed camera! That's awesome but it won't have a viewfinder worth... the EVF has WHAT resolution?? And the rear screen won't let me pick a focus... it's a touch screen? It'll have some ridiculously poor video... 60fps you say? The lens won't be as good as a typical M... it's HOW fast and sharp?

And it's combination of AF and MF seems even better that Fuji's X if it's living up to rangefinder levels of awesome. This lens seems the equal of nearly any wide angle prime made by canon or nikon as well.

Even at $4,300 you can't expect it to be much cheaper with a FF sensor (A7 is still $1k) and a f1.7 wide angle lens (canon's is $450 for f1.8), with that EVF and IS as well. If this were say an olympus product you'd expect it to drop in price some but you know this won't. This is probably the best VALUE leica in a very long time too.

Good points.. But I'm pretty sure it will drop in price - just look at the other digital Leicas.

RStyga: I wonder HOW many versions of the model X will take to replace that unacceptable 230K LCD with a normal resolution screen!! Or is this another "feature" of the X series, like the retarded aperture dial? Leica is a dinosaur hiding behind an expiring name. I remember handling the first X1 model I was appalled of the non-resopnsiveness of the AF. I'm expecting that XE as well as the "flagship" (only in size, I'm afraid) X are the slowest AF compacts on the market. Leica, wake your engineers up!!!

AF was certainly quite good on the X2, hope this is even better.

AF on the X1 can only be describes as a joke, I agree with you there.

The aperture dial IS a little retarded, but I still prefer it over nothing, but they really should put it on the barrell..
230k accually didn't bother me that much on the X2, X typ 113 has 920 dots so that's a major step up..

A built-in EVF would have been nice, but all in all I think the X 113 makes a bit more sense than both the X1 and X2...
