Re: some comparisons

Greetings,

The Leica X1 brochure is out. Did you have a chance to look at the printed images, and what do you think about the quality?

BTW- I thought the X1 has I.S. but there is no mention of that in the brochure.

Regards

Interesting comparisons. First, let me point out that I am not convinced that the X1 samples were processed or even taken all that well.

And if this is true.. I still can not understand why Leica did not have a talented photographer produce a gallery of X1 photos for the Leica website rather than let DPReview be the only site with production model photos. I just can't get over the short-sightedness of Leica in this area of marketing a new, highly anticipated camera.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
