    I suppose that is true. I tried some of the Micro 4/3 cameras this weekend (including an Olympus and Sony one) - they are quite nice cameras but I don't think that I would buy one. I am hopefully going to try a Leica X1 next weekend, so that should convince me whether or not it is for me.

    It's only money, if you don't spend it your partner or kids will!

    If you're not getting a proper Leica you may as well get the Panasonic Equivalent.

    This is a proper leica and there is no panny equiv, your thinking of the d-lux.

    Yes true, that's why I am not going to get one of the D-Lux cameras. I will try out an X1 this weekend, and then I should be able to make my mind up!

    Re: Leica Advice

    I've managed to try both the Leica X1 and Fuji X100 this evening, and they are both excellent...but after seeing a 765 deal for the Leica X1 I could not resist it! So I now have a Leica X1 and I love it! Unfortunately I did not get the lovely packaging, but with a saving like that (it was an ex-display camera), I could not turn it down

    Yes ok, it's not the fastest camera, but I personally find it very nice to use. The hunt is over now.
