Featuring a large APS-C Image Sensor paired with a high-quality fixed lens in a compact and lightweight metal design, the Leica X-E (Typ 102) Digital Camera with Elmarit 24mm f/2.8 ASPH Lens keeps all the strengths of the Leica X2 and places them in an updated titanium body. This compact Leica camera is equipped with a 16.2 megapixel CMOS sensor in APS-C format--a format usually only found in much larger DSLR cameras.

  • 16.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • Leica Elmarit 24mm f/2.8 Lens
  • Lightweight and Compact Metal Body
  • 2.7" 230K-Dot TFT LCD Display
  • 11-Point AF System
  • Manual Focus and Manual Exposure Control
  • ISO 12500, Up to 5 fps Shooting
  • Pop-Up Flash & Built-In Hot Shoe

The Leica X-E also features a fixed Elmarit 24mm f/2.8 ASPH lens that has 8 elements in 6 groups, with 1 aspherical lens element. Paired with the X-E's APS-C sensor, a 24mm lens will provide a similar angle-of-view to a 35mm lens on a full-frame camera. This moderately wide viewing angle makes for a great walk-around camera suited to capturing close subjects or far-away landscapes.

Its large CMOS sensor helps yield lower noise levels with better dynamic range than typical point and shoot cameras with much smaller image sensors. Making the Leica X-E effective at low-light and indoor photography without a flash, sensitivity goes as high as 12500 ISO. However, for times when you need a flash, the Leica X-E has both a built-in pop-up flash and is compatible with larger Leica flashes (sold separately) via the hot-shoe.

A 2.7" LCD with 230k dots and a 100% field of view fills up most of the camera's back. It enables Live Mode and precision focusing. Users can also view and compose their images using either the optical or electronic Leica viewfinder (both optional) which fit into the accessory shoe on top of the camera body.

The camera records in both JPEG and DNG file formats and registered owners can download a free copy of Adobe Lightroom to process the camera's DNG RAW files. The Leica X-E is made in Germany with Leica precision engineering and is compact at 2.7 x 4.9" and lightweight at 11.2 oz and features a design reminiscent of classic Leica M-series rangefinders.
