G1Xm2 Versus Leica X Vario I think is an interesting comparison

I have never really considered the Leica before, but I am enjoying my Leica 25mm f1.4 and there is a unique way it renders my photos that I cant describe but love.  I also have used other Leica optics and even though they are usually out of my price range, I think they have earned my respect for quality imaging.

But I think this is an interesting comparison I hadnt considered until now.  I think in many ways the Canon would win out as the more useful camera and probably do better in low light anyway, but I have been finding that I actually enjoy shooting between f3.5 and f8 any way just because I want more in focus.  Even if a lens is sharp at f1.4 it doesnt matter if nothing is in focus.

I would be curious if anyone has any thoughts on these two.  What do you think?
