    Sorry Godfrey - just seen your 'all models' thread.
    Perhaps we could keep this one going for a few weeks and then combine it with the 'All models' thread later?

    Re: Fun with the Leica X

    I just got the black one yesterday as well. I used it last night at a family party, here are two pics from that.

    I like the lightness compared to the M, and the slightly smaller size. Right now I am using the tiny Voigtlander 28/35 finder which looks nice and keeps the 'bump' really small on top. (so it still fits in a small bag easily without taking it off)

    Two things I noticed, it starts up really fast for a Leica almost instantly. As soon as I turn it on, the finder lights up and it is ready to go. If it is in manual focus, I can click immediately. The second is just a quality thing, the hot shoe cover is aluminum not a plastic insert thingy.

    Off to take more pictures now.

    Here are a couple more from a walk on the beach yesterday.

    There seems to be zero flare in the wedding shot, which is great, I had no hood and the sun was basically hitting the lens.

    Pretty happy with the X, I wish it had a built in viewfinder given the size of the camera it seems like it should fit.

    Sheesh, Jono.

    I created the "Fun with Leica X (all models)" thread (http://www.getdpi.com/forum/leica/51...ll-models.html) two weeks ago—inspired by your thread on the new X typ 113, Jono. I even wrote about it there ... first post on the second page (the way I have GetDPI configured).

    I feel like Rodney Dangerfield ... ]'-)

    Re: Fun with the Leica X

    BTW, I put a query into the last post I made on the "new Leica X type 113" thread. I'm concerned that my camera might have some problems:

    - I'm not getting any GPS data with the EVF fitted.
    - The status light does not indicate focus/exposure lock.
    - Setting Auto Review to OFF does not actually turn it off: I still get a second long flash of the last exposure I make.

    Could you check your cameras' operation on these things? I can exchange it or get Leica involved at this point.
