THE ART OF ENGINEERING - MADE IN GERMANY
The design and finish of the Leica X Vario reflects the ultimate art of engineering with attention to detail and
the use of the finest materials. When you first see the Leica X Vario, the Leica DNA will be obvious. A few
minutes of handling the Leica X Vario and design characteristics of the Leica M will be apparent including
compactness and construction. The top plate is machined from solid aluminum, the process identical to that
used for the Leica M. The magnesium and aluminum body feels solid while the soft leather trim provides a
comfortable but firm and reassuring grip. The Leica X Vario provides the user with a unique, one of a kind
visual and tactile experience which is synonymous with a Leica made in Germany.
▸ Strong and sturdy. Made in Germany of the finest materials and attention to detail.
