Leica X1 @ PDN PhotPlus Expo

Last week I attended PDN PhotPlus Expo in New York (this explains the lack of new posts from the past few days). At the Leica booth I had the chance to get a detailed presentation of the new Leica X1. I expected the camera to be much bigger and heavier and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the X1 weights only 58 grams (aprox. 2 oz) more than my D-Lux 4!

The picture below shows the optional X1 hand grip:
