Leica's found its form in the point-and-shoot market with its X-line rather than its Panasonic co-brand. The Made-in-Germany Leica designs from the X-2—that is additionally the X-Vario, X Type 113, and X-E Type 102—have contained a similar form factor and technical abilities. The new X-U shares the Type 113 on-lens manual focusing (other models focused using an awkward dial on the back of the body) while adding environmental sealing and is rated for under-water usage for up to an hour at 15m.
