Leica Q (Typ 116) Full Review | ePhotoZine

The Leica Q (Typ 116) is a new camera from Leica, with a fixed 28mm f/1.7 Summilux ASPH. lens, a 24 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, full HD video recording, a 3inch touch screen and the World’s highest resolution electronic viewfinder, with 3.686 million pixels. The Leica Q is available to order now, priced at £2900 including VAT. Even with a full frame mirrorless camera like the Sony Alpha 7 series, or a Leica M Rangefinder, finding a bright 28mm f/1.7 lens could be tricky, with your options available being Leica’s own 28mm f/1.4 (£3900) or 28mm f/2 (£2700) lenses being quite pricey. Alternatively, Canon offer an older 28mm f/1.8, Nikon offer a 28mm f/1.8G, and Sony offer a 28mm f/2 FE mount lens. Considering the Leica Q features a 28mm f/1.7 lens, which on it’s own would be around £3000, we think the £2900 asking price of the Leica Q is quite reasonable. The camera is built in Germany, where Leica’s other premium full-frame cameras such as the Leica M are manufactured, with technology from Panasonic including the auto-focus system and optical image stabilisation (OIS) system……..
