Leica X2 review

Dynamic range

I found the dynamic range of the Leica X2 to be good without being outstanding. Generally, the evaluative metering exposes images to avoid any burnt-out highlight detail, which can cause underexposure in shadow areas.

It is possible to increase the brightness of shadow areas, but only by around 2EV before colour noise becomes very apparent, even at ISO 400.
