Leica X1 Preview Samples Gallery on Dpreview.com

Dpreview.com just published some sample pictures from the “entry-level” Leica X1 camera here.

When I first wrote about the X1 almost a month ago here I noted that although they had a “hands on” experience with the camera Dpreview did not publish any sample pictures. Now they have – including one of Tower Bridge, London.

As expected the pictures are very high quality, especially at the edges. I am not an expert but I feel they are measurably superior to others I have seen from expensive cameras. But do their have the Leica “look”?

Maybe it is not possible to judge a camera of this quality from even full-size images on a PC’s display. Maybe I should print them on a high quality printer and compare them with the output from other cameras to get a fair impression.

What do you think?

    Just to show how far we have to go in software, I found a link to this post from http://www.autoblog.com/2009/09/15/frankfurt-2009-2010-bmw-x1-shows-up/

    It’s about the BMW X1 light SUV. But the “automatically generated links” cued only on X1. This post’s title is clearly “Leica X1” but the software scanning the blogs was not intelligent to see that. A human would have spotted it at once. I bet there are links in the opposite direction too.
