Reasons For

10 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Leica V-Lux (Typ 114) has a megapixel count of 20.1MPMP, but the Leica X (Typ  113) is only a 16.2MPMP digital camera (3.9MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

22% more total megapixel count Edit
The Leica V-Lux (Typ 114) has a total megapixel count of 20.9MPMP, however the Leica X (Typ  113) is only a 16.5MPMP digital camera (4.4MP less).
Five aspheric elements Edit
The Leica V-Lux (Typ 114) has five aspheric elements, however the Leica X (Typ  113) only has two aspheric elements.
Significantly higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Leica V-Lux (Typ 114) has a maximum ISO speed of 25,000, whereas the Leica X (Typ  113) is only a 12,500 maximum ISO speed digital camera (13 lower).
