Leica Q (Typ 116) Review: A Full-Frame Mini M

Back when the X Vario was introduced and initially teased as a mini M, many were disappointed. The X Vario (Typ 107) ended up being a great camera, an X with a zoom, and a stellar zoom lens at that, but certainly not the mini M that many hoped for. Don’t get m...

Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) Review

Many in the photographic community have speculated that it was only a matter of time until Leica made a monochrome version of the M (Typ 240), more commonly known as the M240. The original M Monochrom, perhaps now better referred to as the M9 Monochrom, was a ...

Going Wide: Leica Super-Vario-Elmar-T 11-23mm Lens Review

At launch, the Leica T-system was available with two lenses: the Leica Vario-Elmar-T 18-56 f/3.5-5.6 ASPH (equivalent to a 28-85mm) and the Leica Summicron-T 23mm f/2 ASPH (equivalent to a 35mm) with the promise of two additional zooms to be formally announced...

Leica M-P (Typ 240) Hands-On Preview

Every two years, the world of Leica is thrown into a frenzy as Photokina approaches. Over the last decade, Leica has consistently introduced a range of new and exciting cameras and accessories at the show. While I am confident the 2014 trade fair will not disa...

Leica T (Typ 701) Review

Mirrorless or EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens) cameras have become increasingly popular since the first Panasonic micro 4/3 systems came on the market several years ago. Sony jumped in with their NEX series and Samsung put out the NX. Olympus ...

Leica X Vario (Typ 107) Review: Looking Beyond the Specs

Leading up to the launch of the new X Vario, Leica rolled out a teaser campaign for what they were calling a “Mini M.” The campaign was quite effective at building up anticipation for this new camera. So much so that expectations, mine included, got a little o...

Leica V-Lux 4 Review

Ever since its announcement, Leica’s new V-Lux 4, the successor of the much loved V-Lux 3, has been turning heads. The super-zoom “SLR-type” compact camera boasts a 25-600mm lens with a constant aperture of f/2.8, an incredibly fast and versatile combination. ...

Leica D-Lux 6 Review: A solid improvement over the D-Lux 5

The new Leica D-Lux 6, replacement to the popular D-Lux 5, has started to ship in the United States, and I have been playing with it for a few days (the above image of the water tower was taken with the D-Lux 6, 24mm, 1/250th at f/4, ISO80). As a D-Lux 5 owner...

Leica X2 Review: A Weekend in Berlin

The X1 had been a pretty revolutionary idea when Leica released it alongside the M9 on 9/9/9 three years ago. Forgoing the smaller micro 4/3 sensor format, Leica went larger, opting for an SLR-sized APS-C 12MP CMOS sensor. The decision resulted in excellent im...

Leica M Monochrom Review

When I heard the rumors about a B&W-only digital M camera body a few months ago, I was a bit skeptical. Who would want such a thing when it is so easy to convert M9 images to B&W in a matter of seconds with LR, Silver Efex or (insert favorite image pro...
