"Leica X1 delayed till February 2010
By LR admin | December 19, 2009

Arlingtoncamera just confirmed the news to LR: their Leica rep has told them that the Leica X1 will be delayed until February, 2010.

I see two reasons for that delay: either Leica wants to concentrate on M9 production in order to satisfy the current demand (see this post) or the latest X1 review at dpreview was not up to par with Leica’s expectations and they are working on few final tweaks."
