Well, these are just a few of my favorites. When the light is right, and the autofocus works properly, this is what's possible.

But due to a lot of great photos ruined by slight blurriness.... I'm thinking to sell my x2 and get a Sony RX1.

These photos haven't been corrected at all using any software. They have, though, been made smaller for uploading here.

Nice shots. What's happening in the third image?

When it first came out the X2 produced softer shots than the X1 at Base ISO and ISO3200.
A firmware fix sorted the problem at ISO 3200 but AFAIK it still exists at Base ISO.

Of all the Leica X series it appears that the old X1 still produces the sharpest images.

Thanks! But it seems the website really reduces the quality when uploading them!

The third image is a festival last week near Langmusi in Gansu Province in China. Its a Tibetan festival celebrating tribes no longer being at war with eachother.

These are wonderful photos. I would really like to know more about the blurriness problems you have had with the X2. I just tried one last week and really liked the feel. Thanks again!

Basically I found that in any kind of low light - even daylight in a shadow , or a rainy day, or maybe 6pm in the summer (when it doesn't get really dark until about 8-9) - any kind of hand shake transfers to the image, even above 1/60th.

The low light picture of the two giraffes is outstanding.
My only Leica experience so far is with two Leica Digilux 2's.
Not totally Leica, but as close as I have gotten. They still do good work.

When shooting with my X2, I find I need to take control of ISO in any low light situations. The auto ISO is limited by the inability to set a min shutter speed above 1/30 second - too slow for a non-stabilized camera.
