Craig Mod, after six months with the Leica Q:
If the iPhone is the perfect everyperson’s mirrorless, then the Q
is some specialist miracle. It should not exist. It is one of
those unicorn-like consumer products that so nails nearly every
aspect of its being — from industrial to software design, from
interface to output — that you can’t help but wonder how it
clawed its way from the R&D lab. Out of the meetings. Away from
the committees. How did it manage to maintain such clarity in its
point of view?
Beautifully illustrated with photos taken with the Q, and wonderfully written and considered. My only complaint about this review is that it might wind up costing me $4000, because this camera is right up my alley.
