Leica Q review- Photographs of the past 18months.

I have had the Q for the past 18 months or so, but its unfortunate that I am parting my ways with it since I am upgrading to M240.

You should get in touch with Leica HQ as you are probably going to help them sell some Q's!

I agree with the others, excellent photos. You might regret selling it off.

The Q allows for better better framing and is quicker than a traditional M in certain situations. To get an expression, to capture just the right moment. At least that my experience with quite a few shots. Obviously just using a Q and not having the visual expectation what is going to be an interesting frame will only yield snapshots, as every other camera can do as well.
And yes, this wide angle lens wide open at 1.7 is stunning ... not a lot of lenses will get these results.

More like a sidegrade, isn't it?

I've been constantly tempted by the Q after deciding not to play the Leica digital game anymore. There's just something right about it; I just wish it wasn't so costly for a fixed-lens camera. (Quality not-withstanding).

Beautiful work with it though sir! I'm sure you'll have just as much fun with the M.

Great job with this! I'm actually an owner of M262 and am adding the Q to workflow when shooting

It should be arriving this week

The Q was the first digital Leica I truly considered. If it was 35mm or had an OVF I think I woulda broke down and bought it.

Basically if Leica made the x100 series I would be pretty happy.

Those are great photos! Thanks for sharing the link. You may yet regret parting ways with the Q.

I could not possibly afford a Q, but I like having a small, fixed-lens digicam w/ the equivalent of 28mm. For me, the Fuji X70 is a poor man's Q. ;-)

Lovely images & review!

I've actually gone the other way - I sold my 28mm Summicron to fund the purchase of a Q as a complementary body to my M240.

I haven't used wide angle lenses on my M240 since I got the Q, but have found that the Q as my main camera plus my M240 with a 50mm is the perfect combination for me!
