Leica X1

Leica has announced the new Leica X1 – it features a 12 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor (the same size used as most DSLRs), a 2.7″ screen, flash hot shoe, 35mm equivalent f2.8 autofocus lens, shutter and aperture dials, pop-up flash, AF assist lamp, ISO3200, and will be available in Silver and Black from January 2010

“Countless iconic images in the history of photography were shot with a fixed focal length of 35 mm. This focal length is considered to be a classic for reportage photography, and has lost none of its timeless charisma today. The Leica Elmarit 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH. is a true Leica lens with terrific optical performance. When seen in terms of 35-mm film format, it has precisely this legendary focal length of 35 mm.”
