“Much better autofocus efficiency is also worth to note. The casing is kept in the same elegant style and I am sure there will be plenty of those who will appreciate the refreshed model because of that.”

PCMAG reviews the Leica X2 and writes;
“I used Imatest to check the sharpness of the X2’s lens. It does much better than the 1,800 lines per picture height required for a sharp image—at f/2.8 the lens records 2,089 lines, a figure that increases to 2,318 by f/5.6. The X2 is able to control noise through ISO 1600, but images get very noisy at ISO 3200 through the top ISO of 12500.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Pocket-lint reviews the Leica X2 and writes;
“Compared to the X1 there’s a raft of improvements: higher resolution, quicker autofocus, stiffer control dials, a higher pop-up flash, significantly better battery life, and an accessory port to add an electronic viewfinder should you wish.”

Whatdigitalcamera reviews the Leica X2 and writes;
“The AF system has a choice of either 1 point, 11 point, spot or face detection AF. For manual focusing, the central area of the frame is magnified, and focusing is performed using the thumbwheel.
The X2 is capable of shooting at up to 5fps, managing 8 combined Raw and JPEG files before the buffer stops operation as it writes images to the card.”
