Leica proudly presents the Leica X Vario - a groundbreaking compact camera which combines a
large APS-C format with a zoom lens to offer customers the best possible quality and versatility in a compact digital camera.

The Leica X Vario digital camera incorporates the Vario-Elmar 28-70 mm f/3.5 - 6.4 ASPH lens (35 mm equivalent), and the APS-C CMOS sensor ensures images of unsurpassed brilliance. The size and quality of the sensor means low image noise, high dynamic range, and accurate color differentiation. The wide-angle to telephoto zoom range of the Leica X Vario offers photographers the options for many more creative compositions: indoor scenes, impressive landscapes, or intimate portraits.

The Leica X Vario allows users to change focal length easily and quickly, to spontaneously capture the perfect moment. In addition, the autofocus is fast, extremely precise and virtually silent, while the switch from autofocus to manual focusing is intuitive—simply move the focusing ring on the lens from MF to AF mode.

The Leica X Vario features several significant technical, design and handling characteristics of the Leica M. With the AF Leica Vario Lens offering an equivalent zoom range covering 28–70mm and full-HD video recording, the Leica X Vario expands the creative options for the user, while offering easy and automatic operation.
