Leica cameras have always been paragons of image quality, but to attain such quality was usually a hassle, fraught with sacrificing many modern technologies. The Leica Q essentially brings Leica into the complete 21st century of camera technology, all additional bells and whistles included, rather than sticking to the core “expert photographer” toolbox. Things like an EVF (electronic view finder), touchscreen, WiFi, a companion app and the like.
And of course, being that this is a Leica camera, a full frame sensor and a high price tag are also coming along for the ride. So, how is this ride, exactly? I had a week to find out.
