Thanks for your report. I'll handle a model once my dealer gets one.

Can you offer a reason why Leica have chosen to not offer shooting raw files only? Raws have to be paired with one of the two jpg styles. That seems very odd and was the main reason I shied away from buying an X2. Now the same for the new X Vario. I simply can't think of a reason for this restriction.

Again, thanks for your report!

HI Mike

Thanks for the kind words.

I'm not sure why either, but as it really doesn't impact on performance I don't really mind.

You can choose just to import the DNG files into LR or Aperture easily, and the jpgs actually work very well if you're importing onto an iPad.

I agree it's strange, but I'm sure it shouldn't be a show stopper.

all the best
