Price of used Q will skydive to sub US $2500

Recommended Posts

Time will tell. The Q is not a rare camera though. The most sold Leica in the last 4 years. In the same magnitude as Leica M3 and M6 : data from Leica representatives.

So we can estimate its sales around 200K units. Far more than any digital Leicas. Maybe even more than all digital M combined. 

That's why Leica is really nervous to duplicate this success with a very nice updated Q2. They are now too Q line dependant.

Precisely the reason why I don't believe the hype that Q1 is being offloaded quickly by owners and that its price will "skydive". People see 50 or even 100 Leica Q for sale and they start to panic "OMG the Leica Q is depreciating fast" thus feeding the internet hype. 🙄 They forget that the number of Leica Q for sale is a very very tiny proportion of the actual number of Leica sold.

Those suffering with GAS or GOS will sell their Q1 cheap so that they can get their hands on a Q2 (although as jaapv says how much they will make use of the extra features remains to be seen). There's some people out there that have listed their Q1 for £1700😱. I mean, if nothing else, that is disrespectful to the Q.

So the price might go down for a short period of time but it certainly aint going to stay that low for that long.

My 1st thought was not to get the q2 bit with all the hype my GAS is kicking in

Yes, I feel your 'gas' pain.

Speaking with dealer he said they have already decided to limit Q trades because of number of inquiries to trade for new model. Will be interesting. Still think Q1 is great camera.

I assume you mean nosedive, an antonym of skyrocket, or perhaps you meant noserocket? 😂
