Bought the XE-1 as a good adjunct to the Leica, and it is. However, it is no Leica. Could not get an image even close to this one from the Fuji.

Taken in Taos Pueblo just after the snow.

Used the M9-P and the 35 Summilux @ f/4.

Friends don't understand why I use the Leica. They go on about auto-focus and high-ISO. For me, it is just LOVE!

As far as optics are concerned Leitz is still among the top dogs but should be careful, renew, redesign and don´t rely on what once was. Mechanical skills are still OK, but very old fashioned. As for electronic development, their still ages behind the rest of the pack. Hopefully, one day Leitz will see the light they, don´t want to see, and manufacture a state off the art camera that matches their lenses. of course the Leitz S class isn´t addressed here.
