    Auto Review gives one the options of: Off, 1s, 3s, 5s, Hold, Zoom, however, when I set it to Off, I expect no image freeze and it appears to be no different that the 1s setting. Anyone else experience this?

    Just got a call from Leica technical support and this is a known issue, probably fixable with a firmware update, no update on the horizon though.

    My XV is gone, but my 'T' does the same, and my feeling is it's just intended as a cover for the slow write to memory (i.e. not intended as a 'display' per se). I shoot mostly bursts, and that's when you really see what's going on, what with the frame counting etc.

    I agree that it's a glitch while the writing to the card. It's a basic bug aside from the intended Auto Review settings, even at "Off"
    To prove this, set your camera to single exposure, click a pic, then immediately press the shutter half way as you pan (left or right, doesn't matter) ...because it's still writing, camera freezes mid pan as well.
