Leica X-E (Typ 102) Review

February 13, 2015 | Mark Goldstein |


The new Leica X-E (Typ 102) is essentially a cost-reduced version of the three year old X2 camera, offering exactly the same features and image quality at a slightly lower recommended official price. It's starting to look dated now in 2015, with the lack of a movie mode and terrible rear LCD screen, so much so that we can't really recommend it despite the price reduction. We'll be reviewing the Leica X (Typ 113) soon, which is actually a new camera, rather than a cost-cutting exercise - we'd recommend that you wait for that review if your heart is set on this kind of Leica camera...
