?The Leica X1 compact camera? and the Leica V-Lux 20 compact travel camera also significantly contributed?, ? said a Leica spokesman.

Leica?s sales revenue rose to Euros 110.8m, from Euros 59.5m for the same period the year before.

Sales of cameras, lenses and accessories shot up from Euros 36.6m to Euros 87.7m.
