Leica X Vario Camera: APS-C Compact Isn’t Cheap, But It Is a Real Leica

I love good digital cameras, and you definitely get a lot of value for what you pay for, since mine has lasted me about 7 years. That being said, it’s no Leica (just a Nikon.) With their latest announcement, Leica showcases another elegant take on compact cameras.
