Size does matter when it comes to image sensors
Even the most compact member of the X-Family, the Leica X-E, has an unusually large APS-C-format CMOS sensor. And it, too, makes no compromises when it comes to picture quality, natural colour rendition, and the finest resolution of details. Even in low light.
It fascinates with design and quality
The elegant design of the Leica X-E is dedicated to compact ergonomics and ease of use. Visually iconic, it also treats the hands to an exciting tactile experience. Because its light but strong full-metal body lends it a tangible robustness – it feels as good as it looks. Exceptional materials brought together and finished with a passion for exquisite detail. The Leica X-E: a true X-Camera in both design and quality – Made in Germany.
Intuition is the best user manual

This makes the Leica X-E the ideal camera – especially for less experienced users. The experience of shooting perfect Leica pictures right from the start is all part of the package.
