Editor's Review

The Leica X2 is an update to 2009's X1, an over-priced yet very good rangefinder with an APS-C sensor and fixed 35mm f2.8 lens. The X2 provides only a few upgrades but both are absolutely necessary: a higher resolution 16.2 megapixel sensor and improved autofocus. While the X2 is a bit smaller than Fujifilm's XPro-1 and X100, we aren't convinced it's even close to competitive. The rangefinder-styled camera doesn't shoot video, sports an underwhelming LCD, and mounts an external, optional electronic viewfinder. It's an absolutely gorgeous camera, but for the prices Leica usually demands, we say meh.
