Leica has taken the official wraps off of its ‘Mini M’ teaser campaign and introduced to the world the Leica X Vario. [click to continue…]
It appears that the cat is fully out of the bag with the upcoming Leica Mini M, the proper model name of which will be the Leica X Vario Type 107.
Additionally, the initial specs that we hoped were wrong have been all-but-confirmed, which means the new camera will sport an APS-C sensor and a fixed 18-46mm f/3.5-6.4 zoom lens. As such, it seems that the X Vario Type 107 will be paired as a sibling to the 24mm f/2.8 fixed lens Leica X2. However, if the price turns out to be what’s rumored below, then it may cost substantially more in the US than the $2000 X2.

All in all, it was underwhelming and left many of us scratching our heads. [click to continue…]
