Conclusion
The Leica X (Typ 113) is an across-the-board improvement. It has a 35mm f/1.7 lens (the brightest of its kind), much faster performance, Full HD video and, finally, a modern 2014-style display. Even the manufacturing and handling have gotten better. However, the Leica logo itself doesn't justify the design issues or the fact that the tech is still behind the competition. All the same, it's a good pick for Leica fans who wish they had a mini-M, or any non-Leica fans in search of charm and simplicity.
