The Leica T (Typ 701) features a stunning aluminum unibody design, but it's not as robust as its price tag implies.

  • +

    Stunning design. Integrated Wi-Fi. Big 3.7-inch touch-screen LCD. Customizable interface. 16GB internal storage. Supports in-camera charging and includes external charger. Come with Adobe Lightroom license.

  • -

    Expensive. Slow autofocus. No Android companion app. Proprietary strap system.

The Leica T, like many Leica products, can be a mixed bag. It raises expectations about unprecedented quality with its shiny metal body and high retail price, but quickly disappoints when it comes to the most basic functions such as the lack of an exposure lock button or the slow and unreliable...

  • +

    Beautiful aluminum body, Clever battery locking mechanism, Large touchscreen display, High-quality optics, Very good image quality

  • -

    No tiltable display, Unorthodox menu system, Slow and unreliable autofocus, Wi-Fi connections not stable, No exposure lock button

One hundred years is a long time for any company to survive, especially in an industry that’s gone through as much change and upheaval as cameras. Leica’s been able to thrive, however, even though its products are exceptionally expensive and serve a niche user base.

  • +

    Beautiful design, Solid build quality, Good image quality

  • -

    Very expensive, Slow, Clumsy ergonomics

I But Leica’s style is unique, and rightly so. What a camera like the model T does is invite the shooter to be creative; to entertain new ideas, and display them with the lighting, color and effects that some call the “Leica effect.

9 July 2014

Carved out from a block of aluminium, the Audi-designed Leica T is one sexy and sleek camera that can be said to be the Miss Universe of the mirrorless cameras. From the company famous for its rangefinder cameras, the T certainly has brought the mirrorless market a notch up.

So after only one week of using and shooting the Leica T I have come to the conclusion that while not perfect (no camera is), the Leica T is a fabulous mirrorless solution from Leica.

Beauty in photography can be represented in many forms and has different meanings. But if we associate the word with the actual tool, in this case a camera, it is usually a question of aesthetics: “It looks nice” “It looks modern” “It looks ugly” and so on.

24 April 2014

Leica's new compact system camera has a killer design, a brand-new lens mount, and lots of fresh ideas.

A whole new camera system from Leica! A mirrorless form factor with a 16MP CMOS sensor, Leica T-mount interchangeable lenses and two lenses available in May, plus very distinctive styling like no other camera on the market right now.

A great camera, but only if you think the premium engineering is worth the price.

A very polarizing camera. I find it almost difficult to write my thoughts on it since I know how upset people get when someone says that they love this camera. Some get angry because they don't think its a proper Leica. Some because they can't afford it. Others because they don't get it.

There are a lot of negative comments about this camera. But anyone who has a Leica T are delighted. This is a unique camera with exceptional image quality. The build quality is incomparable. It is very pleasant to handle. No other camera has an interface like this. It is quite unique.

Love the imagequality and the ease of use. The menu is a relavation. Downside pricewise, the electronic viewfinder is a must for long reach and m lenses.

Finally got this at a sale - brand new , and the only comment I can make is : Leica should stick to making cameras or better still lenses, and leave writing of the firmware and software to the professionals. I am a M user and have / still used M6, MP, M8, M9 , M9P , M240 and X2 , V-LUX.

Bought it for a friend. Solid built but features set pales compared to Sony at a lower price. For professionals, the all-touch control takes some getting use to.

22 June 2014

This is a beautiful camera, but despite the aluminium housing, the touch screen is very fragile. The screen on my camera cracked within two weeks, and Leica has been very difficult about this, insisting that it was my fault and that I had "impacted" the camera in some way.

22 June 2014

I love the Leica T system. It is my favorite camera/system that I have used (I have experience with other ILC systems like the Fuji and the Panasonic, some DSLRs, as well as other Leica compacts such as the X1 and the X2).

22 June 2014

I would have given it two and a half stars but the only choice was 2 or 3 stars. I got this camera to replace a Leica X-Vario. I had high hopes that Leica had improved the processor speed and that this would result in better performance.

22 June 2014

We've had the camera for a few weeks. Built quality is very impressive. With the 18-56 T lens, the images are very sharp and noise free up to ISO 1600, and usable at ISO 3200. Touch screen is beautiful, even in bright day light. Interface is very well designed.

Since you’re reading this it’s safe to assume that the idea of owning a Leica T has crossed your mind. To save you time I’ll sum things up. This is the only review you’ll need. Hold a T in your hands and you’ll know at once whether or not the camera is right for you. It really is that simple.
