Leica M9 and X1 Camera Preview


According to Leica Rumors, both the M9 and X1 cameras will be seeing a release this year. While the M9 will make itself available in stores next week, the X1 should become available in the coming months. Offered below are some specs from both cameras.

Leica X1 specs:
12 mp APSC CEMOS sensor
Leica Elmarit 24mm f/2.8 ASPH l;ens (equivalent to 35mm)
Manual exposure operations (shutter dial/aperture dial
Built-in flash (this is the circle cover on top right)
Bundled with Adobe Lightroom
Made in Germany

Leica M9 specs:
Full frame CCD 24×36mm 18.2 mp sensor
Improved image noise performance at high ISO settings
Improved operation reactivity
SD card slot
Bundled with Adobe Lightroom



  1. The X1 is small and neat. Unfortunately the lens can’t be manually focussed directly via the lens barrel. On the other hand if Leica make some adapters for the lens to give the camera greater options as a serious tool then it will gain some followers.

    The M9 is, of course, the camera we’ve all been waiting for Leica to produce. A true digital M and the smallest bodied full 135 frame camera on the market. A real breakthrough.
