That's a tough one to answer since they are so different. My personal preference is to have as little gear as possible when I go out shooting so the X1 is often my camera choice since it doesn't give up much IQ and is so much more compact. Of course you give up the flexibility of an SLR and a range of lenses. For me, zooming with my feet is no problem.
Hi, thanks for watching the video. I purchased the X1 from Schmidt Camera downtown.
Yes, it's a leather piece. There have been some reports of it starting to peel from some users in hot, humid climates.
Sure a re-boxing video would be great. Well, I'd hate for you to have a pre-owned X1 so maybe you're better off heading to your nearest Leica dealer, tell them I sent you.
