The Leica Q (Typ 116) is a niche camera, with a full-frame image sensor and a dedicated 28mm lens. It's not for every photographer, but it's fantastic at what it does.

    Full-frame image sensor. Sharp, wide aperture lens. 6.7-inch macro mode. Fast autofocus. Large, crisp EVF. Touch-screen display. 1/16,000-sec electronic shutter. 10fps burst shooting. 1080p60 video recording. Includes Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. In-camera Wi-Fi.

    Expensive. No built-in flash. Touch screen focus could be better implemented. Lacks 24fps video option.

The Leica Q doesn’t come cheap, but it’s still got people talking. Find out why in our Leica Q (Typ 116) review.

    Snappy AF set-up; High-end build quality and finish; Class-leading EVF

    Lacking a microphone socket; High price tag

Other modern features of the Q include the ability to record MP4 Full-HD video at 30 or 60fps with stereo sound via the built-in mic, optical image stabilisation for still and video and both Wi-Fi and NFC (near Field Communication) connectivity to allow remote control by a smartphone or tablet as...

    High price, No grip on the front, Large for a compact camera

27 July 2015

The Leica Q is everything we expect a Leica to be. It’s amazingly well made; the build-quality and physical appearance are remarkable. It also produces images of exceptionally high quality.

Leica may be notorious for making cameras that help photographers slow down their process, but the Q also has the ability to help speed things up. It offers 10 fps bursts, even when capturing full-res DNG images.

10 June 2015

A terrific, if expensive, full-frame compact, the Leica Q is worth every penny for landscape and street photographers.

  • +

    The Leica Q produces great photos and videos, sports a stellar lens and a delivers surprisingly good performance.

  • -

    There's a lot of moire to clean up in the photos and a real grip would be nice for the money.

In the James Bond novels and films, Q is the oft-exasperated purveyor of high-tech gadgets that inevitably help 007 escape impossibly tight spots.

  • +

    Super fast; gorgeous image quality; good low-light performance; responsive AF; Wi-Fi; touchscreen display; sharp EVF.

  • -

    Limited video features; pricey; lens cap can inadvertently rotate aperture dial.

Buying a Leica camera is like buying a very expensive watch – it’s a luxury item. Hung around the necks of people who have no idea of photography, it is a status symbol.

The new Q is not cheap. Leica never ever is and while I was hoping for $3500 (I feel that would have been PERFECT and sold a ton of these for Leica), it appears the Q comes in at $4250, about $750 over my “hoped for” price. Yep, $4250. True Leica style ;) I loved my time with the Q.

Sometimes it just happens. You grab a camera for the first time and it immediately feels right. You turn it on, you take the first shots, you dig randomly into the menu feeling a little bit lost, but it doesn’t matter. Everything just looks great.

I am back to Leica, due to the Q. It is a phenomal camera, with the right size, that is digital. What I like about it is the following: 1. I owned a few M6 TTL's Leica's (film) in the past, with 5 lenses. Enjoyed rangefinder, and outcomes of photos.

Yesterday was $6,999.00. Today $7,999.00. Looks like USA debt now.
