Pros: 28mm Summilux F/1.7, performance of a full frame sensor, compact body with simple and appealing design

Cons: Absence of a double memory slot and non-interchangeable lens

Opinion: The Leica Q is a minimalist and intuitive machine. It imposes the compromise of a fixed non-interchangeable optics to obtain large images, without the need to carry huge weights. The MACRO function is not to be overlooked and allows you to get great shots close together. In my opinion, the only downside to this machine is the lack of a double memory slot. The double slot would guarantee the back up of the images and then made the Q useful also for professional aspects. With the Leica Q it is possible to "focalize" both in automatic and in manual. In manual, the focus peaking and zoom assist functions help the focus setting in a splendid way, but it is always possible to change focus system very quickly by simply acting on the relative ring. Also, on the Q you can find focus functions like Face detection, and the touch and shoot function that makes it very similar to a smartphone. If you are looking for a reliable travel companion, which at the same time is light, a single body and a single lens, the Leica Q is the right choice.

Pros: Fast and responsive machine, gorgeous and crisp optics

Cons: Price (especially accessories), battery life

Opinion: Who buys the Q does it for a specific use, so I can not come to say that it is not a machine for portraits, because it is not created with that intent. It is a machine created to make street, reportage, to be at the center of the situation. And it does it extremely well. It has few buttons and a few rings and for this it reduces everything to the essential, the photograph. After 2 years of tests and days with this gem I decided to buy it and since then I have not carried around my A7rII, which I used to use for street with only a fixed 28mm lens. Really great and amazing.

Pros: Fantastic machine, beautiful, fast, and optically exalted.

Cons: Price (relative)

Opinion: Beautiful car, bought new in lieu of the Leica mi X2 (also a really good car) and I have to say that there is a quality train in this little German masterpiece. The lens is really phenomenal and combined with a right sensor with honest 24 MP that make the photos really read even to manage but that allow crop (35 and 50 mm already in the car) with a very good resolution. A specialized machina and built with the best materials and technologies, the price is not excessive if you consider that a FF with similar optics costs even more. I can not do anything but recommend it to those looking for a machine of high quality, ready to use and for a use that goes from street to reportage.

Pros: Dynamic range, autofocus, high ISO. Optics to say the least amazing! Construction

Cons: For me Nothing

Opinion: I come from Reflex, newly contested Leica was love at first sight! I use it often in churches and street! It responds beautifully and at the high and low lights splendid in portraits contextualized, landscapes, also proven in macro! A real bomb! The 28 F 1.7 makes stratospheric numbers! Sure costs! Ma......se one has a chance to buy it........ don't wait! Rated 10!

Pros: Reactive, fast, practical, well-designed, electronic viewfinder, high image and constructive quality, central shutter

Cons: Covers specific needs

Opinion: You pull it out of the bag, you grab it and what you need is all there. Enclosed in a couple of well-placed buttons, two or three ring nuts in the right place, a lens that can not be removed (but that much you would never remove), an electronic viewfinder that seems (almost) to look in an optical and a fast and powerful electronics, the central shutter Extremely quiet. The Q... If you are a street photographer, you probably appreciate (in addition to the focal length) its responsiveness and speed. If you are a reportagista, as well. Along with these also the fact that you can use the ring nuts to set the values of the camera, when you use (often) as I do in manual and can understand only by looking at it from above what shutter values you have set. If you love to use telephoto lenses, you don't do anything. If you're looking for flexibility, either. If you do "close up" portraits, maybe you won't need it. What model likes to see her nose deformed by wide angle, bigger than it is in reality? If you do set portrait instead, yes. If you're a pixel freak, maybe it won't be enough. Because it is true that used to 28 gives 24 mpx, but used with the frame of 35 te ne 16 and if croppata according to the frame of 50 about 8. Pochini, for those who have delusions of greatness. More than enough for the "normal" use that you make of a photograph. 8 mpx are printed with more than good quality even on a A3 +, without interpolating and print in a magazine without problems. Its RAW (DNG) are Gestibilissimi and easy to work, as traditionally Leica. The yield of the Summilux 28 ASPH (even with the crop of the frame equivalent to 50) is of the highest level. Ease of use and effectiveness, as well. Personally in some cases, I miss the optical viewfinder a bit, but you can not have everything from life and the electronic one of the Q is at the top (I made comparisons with Sony A7II, Olympus EM1, Leica SL and Fujifilm X100F, X-Pro2 and X-E3). And then, to be honest, I'm getting a little used to it, despite everything. Today in my camera bag they have placed a Leica Q and another Fujifilm APS-C camera that covers the focal above the 50 equivalent (for those rare times I need them). An essential system, which has a lot of limitations, but that in Street Photography and Reportage has specific advantages. Ease of use, speed, image quality, essentiality, simplicity, substance.
