Leica has revealed its latest digital compact camera – the Leica X Vario. …perhaps it’s time to upgrade my old Leica compact…

The camera is the first compact to combine a large APS-C format CMOS image sensor (16.5-megapixel) with a zoom lens (28-70mm) and, as you might expect from Leica, is made from high quality aluminium and leather with a hand-crafted luxury finish. “The X Vario features an intuitive handling concept with clearly laid out functions. The user-friendly operation of the menu interface guarantees rapid access to an impressive range of automatic and versatile manual setting options,” say Leica. A range of accessories will accompany the camera, including a EVF 2 Viso-Flex electronic viewfinder with a 1.4 megapixel resolution and the ability to swivel at 90-degrees for top-down use. The X Vario is available now for £2,250 (approx. $3,500 USD) and comes with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
