Administrators Andrew Reid Posted September 8, 2017 Administrators Share Posted September 8, 2017 Occasionally I like to pretend video doesn't exist on EOSHD and I'm preparing a review of the Leica Q! I really liked Mattias Burling's review And this guy's, with some stunning shots in both... I bought mine used for £3000. The prices new have gone up due to lack of stock. But if you think of it as a £1500 lens and a £1500 body, in Leica terms that's cheap and with this you get very fast AF unlike on the 28mm F1.4 M It is quite simply the best small full frame camera I've ever used And what I find very interesting technologically about it is how much of a Panasonic trace there is in the camera, a clear collaboration and I think we'll be seeing more from Panasonic in the full frame market in due course (just a personal opinion). I had the Sony RX1R II but I prefer the Q, which is saying a lot because the RX1R II is an amazing camera and has better specs on paper. The look of the 28mm F1.7 is drool-worthy wide open on the full frame Panasonic... I mean Leica... sensor. The 24MP sensor in the Q has amazing colour, the lens is crazy sharp... You have a 35mm and 50mm crop mode, which works in video mode too. I really wish it had 4K, 3K and 2K high quality video, as the cropping ability from the full frame sensor at 28mm gives you practically a 28-50mm F1.7 OIS zoom. Firmware update please Leica!
