Leica Q: New fixed-lens full-frame camera with stabilisation, viewfinder,
1.7 Summilux and priced to sell | Mike Evans

Today Leica launched a full-frame mirrorless camera built in Germany to M-standards and with an integral viewfinder. From the X compact, through the X and X Vario, all European-made Leicas up to now have had to slum it with an external electronic viewfinder perched on top. Many assumed Leica was reluctant to build a camera with an integral viewfinder because of the possibility that it might cannibalise sales of the venerable and expensive M.
