Leica Z2X

Traduction de Manuel M

A Leica? then only by the quality of its zoom. All the rest is as well as possible on the level of other compact of famous brand contemporary. If the design is rather successful, the quality of the finishing is mediocre.  Its exposure slightly shifted towards the over-exposure (+ 0.5 IL) prohibits to him to expose a slide correctly.
The shutter is slow, and its maximum speed is largely below the announced features (1/150 measured by Chasseur  d’Images instead of the 1/300!)

Leica hoped to replace its “Mini-Zoom” by this camera; it is missed.

Its price in 1997? 2290 francs. Ah yes, nevertheless!
