Leica X2 – Compact Digital Camera

By - May 11th, 2012

In addition to the M-Monochrom, Leica has announced the debut of the X2, an APS-C compact camera with a fixed 24mm Leica Elmarit f/2.8 ASPH lens. An updated version of the X1, the camera’s biggest improvements take the form of a 16.2-megapixel CMOS sensor — a size typically found in DSLR shooters — and the addition of an accessory socket for a 1.44MP “Viso-Flex” electronic viewfinder. Other benefits include an improved 11-point autofocus system, ISO range up to 12,500 and continuous shooting up to 5fps. Around the back is a 2.7-inch display with 230,000-pixel resolution. On the design front, the X2 features Leica’s signature classic lines, with metal construction finished with leather trim. Featuring a list price of $1,995, the Leica X2 is available for pre-order now at authorized dealers.
