Trading X Vario and Q for CL

Recommended Posts

Thanks for that very detailed response.  I rented an M10 awhile back and was impressed with how much I could bring up the shadows and make some other adjustments.  I hope the CL produces similar files.  I never warmed to the Q.  The fixed wide lens just wasn't working for me.  I enjoyed the X Vario more except for having to use the lousy external EVF.  Both on are their way to Leica Store Miami for a trade.  Still haven't made any final decisions.

The CL  has a slightly higher photographic dynamic range than the M10, so no problems in pulling up the shadows.

Thanks for that info.  I'm looking forward to trying it out.

Update:

Thanks so much to everyone for encouraging me. Over the weekend, I bought a barely used CL from Miami Leica (I must have spotted it on line the moment they posted it because they never even got the details up). I talked with Josh there--very helpful--and it should arrive on Thursday. 

I'm completely besotted with my Q and will certainly keep it (or its eventual successor the Q7, with its 8 tps sensor producing 600 gigabyte files and roasting my coffee beans on demand). Initially, I'm using it with my legacy manual focusing Nikon glass until I get a sense of how it will complement the Q--with its 1/2 sensor, certainly that includes telephoto photography. It's really nice that the cameras share the same batteries.

again, thanks, and looking forward to sharing photos with everyone here!

I fear your Q might be gathering dust :p , at least for a while.

I've placed an order to rent the CL with the 18-56 and 55-135 lenses.  I'm eager to try them out. 

....... and how did you get on ?

I really like the XV and Q and was reluctant to part with them ....... so I ended up with both CL and SL before I let them go. I'd be interested to hear whether you are sticking with them or moving on ......

Thanks for checking in. I bought the CL. I’m really impressed with the image quality. I bought the wide and long zooms but I will probably sell one to help pay for the 35mm prime.
