The new Leica Q generated these comments today from two very respected bloggers/photographers/reviewers:
“optical rangefinder… it was a good option back in the days before EVFs and AF, but honestly, I’ll take the EVF in the Q any day.”
“Colours from the Leica Q are very much in line with the Leica M240/MP240… It’s great to see Leica maintaining continuity within their product lineup…”
I must say I have to respectfully disagree with both gentlemen. Though, in all fairness to Kristian, he backs away from the statement above, further along in his review:
“The Q has a tendency to render skin tones a little on the orange side, just like the M…I guess once Leica decided to go with the M’s colour signature, they thought it was best to stick with it, but I’d like to see this improved in future generations of M and Q cameras.”
There you have it.
As an aside, I do like the Q, though I’m planning on sticking with my M9P/Monochrom (for many reasons).
