Leica X vario….Mini M….

Leica Mini M...X vario

As the website said, Mini M, called X vario officially came out today.

The rumour which came out in May 28  was right….it is zoom lens version of Leica X2.

As I said in previous post, the zoom lens Elmar 27-70mm (35mm equivalent) f/3.5-6.4 is a bit too dark if I think the price tag or $2200.

Since SONY NEX came out, the size of the zoom lens and the image quality has been criticized and that was the big reason that I did not go for SONY.

In case of Leica, they could not do anything about the size of the lens.
So,now….What Leica with interchangeable lenses are….redicurously expensive S system, and ancient M series.

Others are X series which has fixed lens and Panasonic OEM point & shoots.

I just don’t understand what they are thinking and where they are trying to go…..


Leica mini M…more update…


Now….the box of mini M is a bit more open compare to last post.


Now, we can see more than before.

Well…if I see this…I have to say my previous post was wrong. The image of Mini M was everywhere including news site!! But as far as I see, the lens is not as big as the photo we had before.

At least I still think the body is based on X2…..but talk about lens…I have no idea.

leicaminim1As I said last time, the lens is too big on this photo.

It could be zoom lens with APS-C format….or could be 35mm full-size point& shoot….

From the name, It does not sound like big brother of X2. They are calling Mini M….this means It could be 35mm point & shoot like Sony RX1.

At least those Ads. are quite interesting….but it is not attractive to me…
