The Leica Q is the most affordable full-frame Leica camera to date. Its 24MP sensor is good though not class-leading, and the fixed 28mm F1.7 Summilux lens is superb. The camera is built beautifully and responds rapidly.

  • +

    Street shooters, photojournalists, event photographers and world travelers who appreciate a well-built camera with good external controls and like the 28mm focal length.

  • -

    Peak action and video shooters, photographers who need ultimate dynamic range flexibility and photographers on a budget.

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.

Had it been announced by any other camera company in June of 2015, the Leica Q ($4,250) would have been a flagship camera: a compact body, full-frame sensor, optically stabilized and autofocusing 28mm f/1.7 lens, a huge electronic viewfinder and enough processing power to run an Apollo mission.

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.

The Leica Q isn't just great, it blazes a trail forward for the venerable camera maker.

A true object of desire, offering great image quality and fantastic hardware design.

  • +

    Fantastic handling and control, Excellent image quality, High-quality lens

    Price pushes it into a niche, Video capabilities could be better

The Leica Q (Typ 116) offers rapid performance, excellent image quality, and good handling. Considering you are getting a Leica 28mm f/1.7 ASPH. lens with optical image stabilisation, and a 24 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor without an AA filter , the Leica Q offers reasonable value for money,...

  • +

    Bright f/1.7 Leica lens with OIS, 24-megapixel full-frame sensor with no AA, Extremely sharp even shooting wide-open, 2-year warranty, 1-year accidental cover, Fast autofocus, Touchscreen, Wi-Fi with QR code, Adobe DNG raw format, Dual axis electronic level, Extremely high-resolution EVF

  • -

    Some bias towards under-exposing images, saving highlights, Muted colours on default settings, EVF colours more saturated than rear screen, Automatic HDR would be good

Whether you’re a staunch Leica fan, or simply a photography fan, the Q is that rare Leica that will transcend users old and new thanks to its combination of classic and modern features.

  • +

    Exceptional optical quality and sharpness throughout aperture range, Superb image quality even into high ISO settings, Classic Leica build quality is robust yet luxury, Manual controls

  • -

    JPEG standard contrast setting to excess, No tilt-angle screen, Viewfinder eye-sensor a bit slow, Continuous shooting on on/off switch, Fiddly macro/manual focus release, No front grip

I havent drunk the Leica Kool-aid yet, but after a few days, it is a phenomenal camera. I also own a Fuji X-T20, so the immediate comparisons are inevitable. Suffice it to say both cameras are great, but there are nuances to the Leica that are hard to ignore:*The full frame sensor is nice, no doubt...

The Leica Q has been thoroughly reviewed elsewhere so will keep this short.This camera is perhaps the most intuitive, easy-to-use, yet stunningly high-performing piece of kit I've ever used.While it can't replace a full DSLR setup nor has the versatility of interchangeable lenses, it's the camera...

I've been shooting Nikon DSLRs for years, most recently the D810, but I recently decided to sell my truckload of professional Nikon gear and switch to the Leica Q. I made this decision for 3 reasons: 1) I found that I was taking very few pictures because I didn't like hauling heavy gear around; 2) I...

The Leica Q is in my opinion a camera with everything a street shooter ever needed crammed into one camera. The only reason to not buying one has been cost. Ive never thought of it as expensive. Compares to an M-body + 28mm Summilux its down right cheap.

A few years ago I purchased the Leica D-Lux 6 and had great fun with it traveling, hiking and taking it everywhere without lugging about extra lenses. I thought about and read many reviews over the course of the last year about the Q and finally took the plunge. So glad I made the purchase.

I have watched Leica from afar for the past few years thinking my amateur skill level as a photographer could not justify the hefty price tag. But now that I've gotten fairly serious about this hobby of mine, and to celebrate, a milestone birthday, I took the plunge and purchased the Leica Q (TYP...

Love the way this camera can be used as an all-manual camera but with the available technology of focus peeking and touch screen for instance. Nice size, although with my larger hands the grip option has made the camera perfect.
