The Leica Q
My search for high quality, full frame, fixed lens 'grab' camera has now ended. While the Sony RX1 came close, it was a Sony, with all the issues that come with that... After reviewing everything there was on the Q and spending a weekend with my good friend Brady and his trusty little beast, I made the plunge.
Selling off my Nikon gear I am now officially 'All In' with Leica. The advent of the Q and now the SL gives me the opportunity to have a single system ranging from a small compact (Q), to traditional rangefinders (MM & M240), film(tbd), and state of the art interchangeable mirrorless bodies (SL), all capable of using the magnificent line of Leica Glass.
What follows is a visual tour of my first weekend shooting the camera. I had the chance to shoot this in every possible way including from the hip on a bike to night time street shots all the way to more contemplative image making. I can say without a doubt that this is the real deal and is no way a product of the Red Dot hype.
