Just bought a used X-vario with Olympus EVF for those moments I want in color. I took a Canon 6D with lenses to Europe this spring and loved the image quality, but hated the weight. Sold that kit and bought a Leica M9, on a recent weekend trip my wife was clearly frustrated with trying to focus and me fiddling with lenses. I didn't worry too much as she likes my Sony RD100 II, but when a line of dead pixels cropped up on the M9 before the return period was up (bought it from a dealer) I returned rather than repaired it. I've been looking at the X-Vario for a while and after seeing some excellent work by a few of our own members, I decided to give it a try. The only real weakness for what I want is the camera's inability to get shallow depth of field at anything more than semi-macro subject distances. Even wide-open, selective focus effects are subtle. The good news is, at least from images I've seen here and elsewhere (XVarior's work particularly) is that image quality appears up to the level of Leica primes at all focal lengths, distances and apertures. It is also easy enough to use that I can just pass it off to my wife with the camera on full automatic and expect good pictures to result. I should have it by Friday or Monday, and with any luck my next vacation might see me without a camera bag at all. Keeping my fingers crossed.
