How's the battery life with the Q? And does the batt from GH3(?) work well?

Battery life is significantly better than M9 / MM.
I bought Panasonic Lumix batteries DMW-BLC12PP 7.2V 1200mAh, 8.7Wh Li-Ion.
I think about 1/3 $$ of the orig. Leica battery and these Lumix work just fine.

Sometimes it's fun to fool around with the built in macro ring and get really close wide open.
To milk the potential of the lens a tripod might be needed, this was just handheld.

Good to know the macro-like capabilities of the Q.

The Q is still very tempting.

Q goes to Maine

Just came back from Maine, very happy with the Q and the quality of the images it produces. Here are some examples, many more on my flickr page.

Thanks for your comments Helen and Robert. The Q in certain situations makes things possible that I could not have captured with the M9. ISO12500 and 1/15s at F1.7 (the 2nd shot), that's pretty low light.And I have to admit composition is improved with live view especially with quick captures that would be lost with a rangefinder.

And To Think

That my olde X-1 was an overlooked treasure!
Some very nice shots from a camera that requires (like the X-1) that the photographer find its groove.

It's not a one trick pony, but a go fer pony for a number of situations in its wheel house. Picking the right shots requires a bit of experience with the camera, and that's okay!

I should ask Leica for some incentive ...

As you can imagine the perspective was difficult from the seat I was squeezed in and the only chance for proper framing and getting through the mic and sheet music stands and cables, was to hold the camera on arms length to peek through all this, frame on the screen and move the focus spot to where is was needed. Given these circumstances, I am very happy how these shots turned out. And a full size file looks even better than the tiny posts.

Thank you very much! I'm really liking the Q. Had to sell my M9 and some lenses to get it, but don't really miss the M9 anymore.

You bet! Haha.

And with those awkward angles... I think it would even be more challenging when shot by an M, so the Q really fits in nicely don't you think?

In certain situations framing and composing in live view on the screen is just easier, or here I couldn't get behind the vf of the MM for some shots and just aiming w/o actually focussing properly...

Here some more:

"This is where middle C is, you know about middle C right?"
