    The new Leica X U

    Leica sent a newsletter on this:

    Love that hideous looking flash. It will be quite useful because of its location!

    It looks like it'd be easy to hold; a giant step forward, I feel. Definitely looks go-anywhere.

    Its a shame that the flash does not come off.
    I for one carry a single lens compact and rarely if ever use flash.
    While its not large its also of limited use. Perhaps was included to trigger other units.

    Let's hope they improved the camera's speed, especially in AF. The X cameras have been notoriously slow, which is what made the Q stand out.

    I even dont understand why would they not use the Q instead of the X for a waterproof camera????
    28mm would be much better for underwater than 35mm, fast AF and better Video would also be an Advantage.
    And I think to remember that the Q also has a better Close focusing Limit (?).

    Strange. I wonder if the People who decided to build this camera have ever used a camera underwater before.
