Review summary from DPReview
“ The Leica Q is a specialized tool, but one that will nevertheless appeal to a broad range of photographers. In exchange for your forgiveness of some operational foibles, you get an excellent (though not class-leading) 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor, a fast, sharp Summilux lens with gorgeous out-of-focus renderings, and simple-yet-effective controls. ”

My Review of the Leica Q
I have now owned the Leica Q for about three weeks and I have been using it almost daily. In the past, I have owned numerous digital cameras including one DSLR (I also owned several film cameras but they are only tangentially relative to this discussion). Several were very nice cameras but for a variety of reasons I did not keep them. Within the Leica brand I have owned the M8, the X-Vario and the T. None of those met my needs or expectations. In all fairness to the M8, in addition to the numerous known issues discussed on DPR and LUF, I have to add my age related declining vision is just not good enough to rapidly focus a range finder, especially in low light or high contrast situations. This isn’t the camera’s fault but is a fault of the optical range finder design that has plagued many others besides me.
This is going to come as a shock to many of you but: I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! I thought I would get this out first so you can stop reading if you chose.
This is the first digital Leica that has actually met and in some ways exceeded my expectations. First, it is quick, second AF is really-really fast, the fastest I have measured beating out the Olympus EM5-II and several Panasonics.Read more ›
The new 28mm Summilux lens this camera uses is in a class by itself. Given it's full-frame sensor and 1.7 aperture wide-open, you can capture an impressively thin DOF for a relatively wide-angle 28mm lens. Out-of-focus bokeh is smooth and pleasing to the eye. At wider apertures the subject can leap out of the creamy background giving the viewer a beautiful 3 dimensional feel.
You can shoot all day at f/1.7 and obtain that "Leica-look" with consistent and predictable micro contrast from corner to edge, and no noticeable chromatic aberration. The look a Leica lens renders is often hard to describe...but it's a know-it-when-you-see-it type of thing. The subtle and well-coordinated color saturation and soft contrast is unique.
The color saturation and contrast in RAW photos is more rich and well distributed than it is in the Sony RX1, at least in my opinion...and the bokeh is more pleasing and softer. I owned a Sony RX1 for a few weeks a while back, but I returned it because I was unimpressed with how the lens and sensor rendered color distribution. Most everything had a subtle desaturated look to it...just sort of bland...it routinely "missed" on the vibrance of a scene. The Q's photographs have none of those unimpressive characteristics.
The electronics in this camera are elegant in their simplicity. The menus are basic and efficient. You won't have trouble navigating through the interface, and you won't get lost fumbling through endless sub-menus.Read more ›
The Q feels like it’s created from delight itself. The camera is minimal, intuitive, and imposes little compromise to deliver great images. Images that stand toe-to-toe with heavier, clunkier, far less mobile, “professional” kits. Those behind this tool deserve recognition. Especially Vincent Laine, the lead designer of the Q. This is apparently the first camera he’s worked on for Leica. If Leica can find and retain talent like Mr. Laine, then they have a fine future, indeed.
On a macro, industry-wide level, Mr. Laine and his team have struck an impressive balance between not over-technosizing the Q and also not leaning too hard on the anachronistic legacy of the M. Next to the Q, Leica’s other offerings now seem a bit lost — For whom is the touchscreen-only T? The waterproof x-u?11 The Q, on the other hand, with its lightning autofocus, gorgeous Summilux lens, and fast electronic brains and viewfinder, all built atop the granite-set soul of an M, feels like the arrival of a Leica — indeed, a refinement on an entire class of full-frame cameras — many of us have been waiting for.
If you’re looking for a stripped-down kit — one body, one lens — that will bring home remarkable pictures every time, then this is it. The Q is an unbeatable companion.Read more ›
