Leica Q (Typ 116)

 

The Leica Q (Typ 116) is just what we've been waiting for – a new Leica camera that isn't simply a re-brand of another model, and one that isn't ridiculously overpriced.

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

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

Leica Q review: The best fixed-lens full-frame compact ever made

 

Leica is one of those brands that's been around for donkeys years, and for good reason: it makes such exceptionally good optics for its high-end M-series rangefinder cameras that it's in a league of its own. But while the photographic elite might wax...

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

Leica cameras are known for being out of this world. Not just for their no-nonsense build and super-sharp picture quality, but astronomical pricing too. The Leica Q encompasses all of those things and yet despite its near-£3k price tag it's still an...

Leica Q (Typ 116) review

 

Leica's full-frame compact camera proves to be the ultimate luxury point-and-shoot

Top class lens and sensor ; A joy to use ; Rugged construction ; Elegant minimalist design

It's really expensive

If you can stomach the eye-watering price, this is a truly top class point-and-shoot

Leica Q (Typ 116) review

 

Our findings after spending several days using Leica's new 24MP full-frame compact camera

Full-frame sensor ; Fantastic images quality ; Traditional exposure controls ; Wide aperture lens

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

A superb full-frame compact camera for those who like traditional controls and modern features like an electronic viewfinder. The Q is capable of producing beautiful quality images.

Leica Q review: This camera has everything you expect from a Leica, from sharp photos to a high price

 

Leica's fab new full-frame, fixed-lens camera is its most mainstream to date, excluding the Leica-branded Panasonics. It's still Leica-expensive, though.

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.

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

Leica Q In-depth Review

 

The Leica Q's melding of manual control with electronic assistance and combination of fixed-28mm F1.7 lens and 24MP full-frame sensor make for a responsive package capable of excellent photographs. But despite its $4250 asking price, we found a few...

As mentioned in the introduction, there is a combination of classic and modern that is central to the 'personality' of the Leica Q. However, the Q offers a number of other combinations that you might not expect. There's the combination of well-thought...
