Fans of stylish, retro-tinged compact cameras take note! Lecia have revealed a new premium compact, the Lecia X2, heading your way soon!
Designed to look like part of the M system cameras and fitted with an APS-C sensor, the X2 will snap 16.5 megapixel images with a fixed-length Leica Elmarit 24mm f/2.8 ASPH lens (36mm in the 35mm film format), also boasting full manual controls.
An improved auto-focusing system should deliver faster, quieter and more accurate auto focussing, with the sensor itself benefiting from improved low image noise, high dynamic range and colour accuracy.
On the back sits a 2.7 inch LCD screen, while accessories including a 90-degree swivelling viewfinder and optical viewfinder will also be available. To cap things off, each Lecia X2 will come with a copy of Photoshop Lightroom for post-processing of your shots too.
Expect to pay around £1,575 ($2540) for the Lecia X2, with a vague “coming soon” the closest we have to a release date at present.
