The Leica X1 is the direct beneficiary of 100-plus years of German engineering experience and it delivers the best picture quality in its class – in the proud Leica tradition. This elegant camera features a professional CMOS image sensor that’s as large as those in high-quality SLRs. Combined with an outstanding Leica lens it captures images of unmatched brilliance. Any way you look at it, the Leica X1 is a winner: It’s conveniently compact, its controls are intuitive, and it offers a full range of sophisticated automatic functions. A real Leica “Made in Germany”.
The LEICA ELMARIT 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH.
Countless iconic images in the history of photography were shot with a fixed focal length of 35 mm. This focal length is considered to be a classic for reportage photography, and has lost none of its timeless charisma today. The Leica Elmarit 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH. is a true Leica lens with terrific optical performance. When seen in terms of 35-mm film format, it has precisely this legendary focal length of 35 mm.
This is one very interesting camera introduced to me by a friend in France, who share photos shot during his first trip to Venice, Italy. Wow! Clarity from the big chip inside, and the wonderful wide, precise lens. Nice design and German technology.

UPDATE: The camera is a little to pricey for me, but I’d love to give it a spin outdoors and inside tech events and tech labs.
Photos of the Leica X1 didn’t it make it through Posterous onto this blog, so here is a video demo I found on YouTube by LeicaRumors.
