I just recently sold my M8 to "upgrade". I bought a used Q and am having feelings of loss of my M8 which I loved and had a more emotional attachment to than the Q. I bought the Q for the benefit of the option of autofocus in a full frame leica and better performance in low light with a lens that I could never afford to buy on its own and attach to an M. But I prefer the build quality on the 8 as well as the look of the files I just can't pinpoint over the Q. While better on paper in every way from a tech stat standpoint, the Q seems more clinical and images do not seem as buttery and the color rendition is different. I'm not looking for super sharp. I am not looking to document an exact copy of what I see in front of me. I am won over by the feel of images. The leica M8 just seemed to produce more artful dreamy images. Now I have been thinking about an M9 instead as I am reading that the differences I am describing are common with the newer sensors in all Leica. Am I crazy? Should I learn to love my Q and explore ways to replicate what the 8 had that the q seems to be missing?
Hi, I have been successful in connecting my Leica Q to the new Leica FOTOS app downloaded onto my iPhone. After using the app and the q together this first time, I turned off the wifi on the camera and the camera disconnected from the app. As it should. My question is this: when I want to use the Q along with the FOTOS app again, do I have to go through the same process of pairing the iPhone and the camera in the FOTOS app by scanning the QR code again etc, or once I have turned on the wifi on the Q will the iPhone and the Q automatically re-pair again in the app for instant re-use? Thanks, Jeff
