The cameras I own are from Leica, Sony and Olympus.
It is if you want a real Leica.
The lens is too large.
When I turned on the Vario I lifted it to my eye and then ere is no EVF built in at all!Maybe a Sony NEX-7 with zoom or better yet, a Ricoh GR with the APS-C Zoom that will come in at less than 800 and deliver results just about on par with the Leica.The question is this: Is the Leica worth more than the Fuji X-E1 idée cadeau jeune maman accouchement and 18-55 Zoom Lens?The big slow lens.Amazing color here as well.For Example, our Guide in the Palouse, Ryan McGinty said he would buy one if he could as he was in love with what it could.It would not focus fast enough so I missed three shots with it right from the get.You will need the Grip accessory which will set you back another 200.In many cases, you want large DOF.If something is not for you, then ignore.If you shoot in good light you will also be rewarded with beautiful files out of your camera.
I hope to shed some light on that question in this review that is filled with images from the camera, with many full size images from RAW, as well as my honest and truthful thoughts.
