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.
