First post here on the forums, I've been traveling through Europe and Asia the last 4 months, with the Q as my primary camera (I also do wedding work with the Q) and here's my list for a firmware update:

- I want live view in manual mode
- The timer should not be reset after every picture
- Give us a user menu
- I want the fn, delete, movie button and the button in the middle of the arrows as function keys which I can change the function to by long pressing them (so no need for extra menu options)
- Focus menu should get a fix, so it's more logical
- Focus mode should be possible to be changed by a function key
- Add more touchscreen shortcuts and implementation
- Panorama should be better, it often fails
- OIS should be automatic in movie mode (or just give us more options for video)
- The info on the live view screen should be configurable (I don't care about the scene mode and a level gauge would be nice without all the other info)
- The arrows should still change the focus point in touch screen mode.
- Give us the option to change the ISO with the wheel, without having to press an other button.
- Custom name profiles please
- AE lock should be possible without holding down the button
- Manual video
- I don't get why leica bothered with so many scene modes and digital shutter sound!? You can delete those options I think.

That's all ;) Hope 90℅ of these improvements make it to firmware 3.0

The "user" system gives us four personalities for our Qs
(Leica, please let me name them!)
My "User 3" is like the M-D 262 -- pure simplicity, no LCD, direct access to Aperture, Shutter, ISO, and White Balance (via Fn) -- autofocus if desired.

Leica Q with me at all times.  DSLR kit only when 28mm will not be proper.

Sorry if someone else already mentioned this: I went to the Leica store today and played with the Q. The thing that was a deal buster for me was that I could not turn off the LCD. My D Lux 109 has this feature and it is really essential for me. Do any of you know how to turn off the LCD. No one at the Leica store could do it.

They must have had the old firmware installed. It is in the setting for the 2.0 version.

So simple. Just select EVF in the Display menu. Turns off the LCD.

To me the most awaited feature would be a "favorites" menu like in the M10, which would show first when pressing the menu key.
If Leica do it for the next firmware I'll be very happy. This is a simple feature that would solve many ergonomics issues.

That would be a brilliant and most welcome feature.

Agreed. This and the option to turn off Noise Reduction are on top of my list.

i just discovered that setting along with the setting for no review of images (i.e. no chimping) -- totally changes the way i shoot..(for the better)
