Leica X Vario: My Equipment

Status Beginning of August 2013 | Additions February 2014 | Photos of the Camera

On this page, I present my Leica X Vario equipment (status: beginning of August 2013 and mid-February 2014). Please note that the purpose for showing my equipment is to give recommendations to other Leica X Vario users or prospective users, not to boast with what I own.

 

Status Beginning of August 2013

Here is my Leica X Vario equipment from the beginning of August 2013:

Overview

*) At enjoyyourcamera you can buy a full-metal lens hood (with cap) for 36 EUR, which looks very similar to the Leica version that it is meant to replace. Regrettably, I heard of this too late...

 

Additions December 2013, February/March 2014

In December 2013, I bough a Peak Design wrist strap (Cuff) and a shoulder strap (Leash). For details see page Peak Design Straps.

In February 2014, I bought a Marumi achromat +5 to improve the quality of close-up photos ( and another one in June 2014 to achieve +10). The lens has a minimal filter thread of 52 mm, which required me to also buy a 43-52 mm step-up ring.

In March 2014, I bought a used black ThinkTank Retrospective 5 bag for my Leica X Vario equipment and some additional stuff (for example, binoculars, Ricoh GR, purse - but not all of this at once)...

Here is a first look at how I can fill the bag:
