Leica X1 firmware v2.0 will be out on March 29th *updated*

Leica X1 firmware v1.0 will soon be history

Leica Camera Russia just reported that firmware V2.0 for Leica X1 will be out on March 29th. The new firmware version includes the following changes (Google translation):

  • A more accurate manual focusing thanks to the fact that the manual focus screen now always shows the image on the basis of an open aperture.
  • Improved manual focus. Now with the slow scrolling wheel focused perhaps more accurately focus.
  • Enter the 2 speed for more accurate and rapid manual focusing.
  • Introduced the configuration of the lock manual focusing.
  • Zoom in distance scale on the screen in manual focus mode.
  • Added a map scale of depth of field in manual focus mode.
  • Added automatic memorization of manual focusing when camera is turned off.
  • Improved speed of auto focus in low light and low contrast subject, especially with regard to multiple shooting the same object.
  • Added display of the parameter sensitivity (ISO) mode Auto ISO.
  • Improved image quality as JPEG.

The Leica owner website is currently down and I cannot confirm if the firmware is already available online. Some sample images taken with the new v2.0 firmware surfaced earlier today on flickr.
