Leica X Vario Camera: APS-C Compact Isn’t Cheap, But It Is a Real Leica

 |  |  |  |  June 19, 2013


I love good digital cameras, and you definitely get a lot of value for what you pay for, since mine has lasted me about 7 years. That being said, it’s no Leica (just a Nikon.) With their latest announcement, Leica showcases another elegant take on compact cameras.

The Leica X Vario has a 16.2 MP APS-C CMOS sensor, with a 3.0 inch LCD screen in an aluminum and magnesium enclosure. The whole camera comes wrapped in leather trim, giving it a classic look. The X Vario can also capture video at 1080p and 720p at 30 and 60 fps respectively. ISO ranges from 100 to 12,500, and the aperture range is f/3.5-6.4. Its lens is a 28-70mm equivalent.

The X Vario retails for $2,850(USD). This Leica is made in-house in Germany, and like the M9, which costs $7000 without a lens, and the S2, which costs about $15,000, the X Vario is made for stellar optical quality at a more attainable price range compared to other Leica models.
