    Not exactly timely, but welcome and significant nonetheless.

  • X2 owners left out in the cold

    So, I guess they gave up on the X2. The X2 needs that same auto ISO update. It’s useless the way it is now. No firmware update for the X2, thanks Leica.

    Not exactly “new” news. In fact old news.
    Upgraded the firmware on my X Vario just over 1 week ago.

    @Admin: Are you sending us a subliminal message with the photo in this article?

    “Don’t focus on the writing around the lens.”

    Nice touch.

    • Yes, there is nothing good to see on that lens 🙂
