THE NEW LEICA Q – THE UNVEILING OF LEICA INNOVATION

by JAY CASSARIO

The Leica Q is the newest compact camera manufactured by Leica in Wetzlar, Germany. It comes with a fixed Summilux 1.4/28mm lens, a full frame 24mp sensor and a built-in electronic viewfinder. I just tried it for a few minutes at the local Leica store in Hamburg, but as far as I can tell, it’s awesome.

I really like the feel and build quality of the camera. I never was a fan of an optical viewfinder, but this one seriously makes up for previous shortcomings. It is bright, responsive and feels almost natural. The lens seems to be one of the best I have every tried in terms of handling and the macro mode surely comes in handy. This is in fact something all Leica M lenses cannot match. I can not say much about the optical qualities of the lens since I only tried it in the store. But as far as the reviews go, it just might be an awesome piece of glass.
