    For sale is my Leica X1 compact camera.

    One of the finest compact cameras available, featuring an APSC sized sensor and a beautiful 36mm (full frame equivalent) Elmarit lens. A durable metal body houses a number of manual control dials allowing you easy control over the camera.

    The Leica name is associated with quality and this camera is no exception. Please note this isn't one of the lower end 'rebadged Panasonics' this is a genuine Leica. The internet is full of examples of the types of photo this camera can produce. The Leica lens gives sharpness across the frame and it's low light capabilities are excellent.

    Camera is in excellent condition. Body and screen have a few minor marks, but absolutely nothing significant. A couple of the buttons on the back of the camera (ISO and Info) are a little stiff but still 100% operational. The camera is running the latest firmware.

    Camera comes with genuine Leica battery and third party charger.

    £450 ONO, any questions please ask. Open to trades for other interesting camera gear (generally enthusiast compacts or mirrorless systems).

    Price and currency: £450 ONO
    Delivery: Delivery cost is included
    Payment method: BT or PPG
    Location: Stratford upon Avon
    Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

    Any interest in a Panasonic Gx1 with 20mm lens, or a Sony Nex5N with 16mm prime + kit lens, or a Canon G9 (too much camera gear!)?

    Hi,

    What was your main use for this? Im thinking of it for some street photography as it's quite tedious always lugging a DSLR around.

    Have you had any issues with it? I take it the condition is spot on? is it boxed and did you lose the original charger?

    sorry for all the questions, been looking at these and some fujis for a while and I love trying out new gear.

    Potentially interested in GX1 with 20mm. Could you give me some more details on condition, etc. and also what sort of deal you'd be after.

    Main uses have been street, architecture, landscape and informal portraiture. It's great for all those. Just back from Munich where I've captured some beautiful shots.

    I've had no issues with it. Body and screen have some minor marks, but really nothing significant. I'm the second owner, I never had the box. The price reflects its without box.
