Leica Q Review - Going Wide

Recommended Posts

Very good review - nearly exactly what I like and dislike about the camera. I really miss an articulated screen, The X-T2 was perfect that regards with the ability to tilt even in portrait mode. Actually, I think the face detection works very good - but I like the exposure compensation that comes with it on the Olympus cameras. Well, nothing is perfect

Nice review!   As someone who traveled three days after receiving the camera, and learning in the field...  I shoot in manual and found this wonderful.  I also, surprisingly, shot more than half the time in manual focus!  I say surprisingly because of the other two cameras I have owned (Lumix  and Fuji (still use the Fuji, x-e2), I could never really use manual focus.  With the Q, I set that back button for focus, on spot focus center.  With the easy on/off to get in and out of manual/outo focus, I could change in an instant.  My only comment would be, I wish the manial focus wasn't so  sensitive.  Someimes I touch it trying to get the f-stop and it shifts into focus.  It would be nice if it was a little less sensitive, and if, when moving the f-stop ring or shutter speed, it would switch off (as well as maybe depressing the shutter halfway).


And, I, to shot for 30 years with only a 5omm lens.  On my Fuji I have a 40mm, and love it.  the 28mm is a challenge!  : )

Always good to see a solid review with images, written by someone who knows what they are talking about.

And yes, the Q has a very discreet shutter.

Excellent review since it totally agrees with my experiences with the Q. :-)


I'd love to have a "tilty-flippy" rear display and an OLED EVF.

      I purchased a Q end of last year, liked it so much that I sold my Nikon DSLR, Lumix FZ-2500 and Fuji XE-T3. I then purchased the CL with the 18-56mm lens a few months later. Now with adapters to use my Rokinon wide-angles, and 7 Artisan lenses I find myself using the Leica CL way more than the Q.  There's no doubt that the IQ of photos from the Q, a full-frame camera, are better than the Leica CL, t's a fantastic camera and lens with macro capability.. But I'm thinking of selling it add more lenses for the CL (or at least pay it off 😎).   Anyone else face this situation?    BTW, with all that's going on in the world at this time, I'm fully aware that this is no big deal, but it keeps my mind off the other cataclysmic issues  we're experiencing.  All opinions welcome, any recommendation for lenses?...thanks.  I am currently waiting for arrival of the TTArtisan 35mm F1.4 lens to ship.  Be Well everyone.

      Hello everyone, I just wanted to let you know I published a review of the TTArtisan 50mm 0.95 lens and I think the findings might be interesting for you.
      I hope you enjoy the reading!

      RESERVIERT Verkaufe gebrauchte Edel-Kompaktkamera Leica Q (Typ 116). Die Kamera hat kaum Gebrauchsspuren. Das Display und das Objektiv sind frei von Kratzern. Sie diente mir als Zweitkamera, kam aber selten zum Einsatz, da ich doch lieber mit meiner SL fotografiere. Zwei original Leica-Akkus sind dabei, sowie ein neuer Tragegurt, ein Ladegerät, die Geli mit dem Metalldeckel der minimale Gebrauchsspuren aufweist. Dies ist ein Privatverkauf- I send only within EU.

      Is it possible to set up the Leica Q to be used as a webcam for Zoom and other video conferencing meetings? If so, any suggestions on setting it up?

      This is an old-ish (5 months) review, but IMHO it is worth reading if you are on the fence with regard to purchasing the M10 Monochrom.
      This camera costs a lot of money, but make no mistake:  There is no other camera even remotely like it being made anywhere in the world.
