Still they are not so much on the mid-range or lower end; you will have to pay premium for the Leica name.

If your concern is not so much the name and you have some bucks to spare, there are quite a number of capable cameras that you can choose from like the latest X model that was shown at Photokina exhibition.

The X boasts a fixed 23 mm f / 1.7 lens paired with a large 16.2 MP APS – C sensor. The sensor is the same in size to those in most DSLRs, while the lens provides a field of view equivalent to a 35 mm lens on a full-frame camera.

The X is very lightweight and is awfully sharp looking. With this camera, you can shoot JPEG and RAW stills as well as 1080p video at 30 frames per second.

It has a 3” LCD display with a very wide viewing angle, and there is an option of adding an Electronic Viewfinder if you like. There is a top sensitivity of ISO 12,500 and 5 frames per second consecutive shooting mode.
