Bring on the Leica Q2

January 19, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

After a lot of contemplation, I recently purchased a slightly used Leica Q2.  While I am a Sony shooter first, I have always been lured but the mystique of Leica cameras and lenses.  Whether it's how they're build and/or the beautiful rendering of images that come from these cameras and lenses, I have been like many others . . . lusting to try it for myself.  

At first, I rented a copy of the Q2 from the good folks at Lens Rental.  From the first image I took, I could tell that all this mystique about images from Leica cameras and lenses was true.  Great colors, contrast and overall rendering was just beautiful.  So is the camera!  It looks like a piece of artwork yet it's certainly sturdy to handle the elements whether out in the rain and snow, or the cold.

The camera very much reminds me of the Sony RX1 series . . . single focal length camera with no ability to change lenses.  That's right, the Q2 has a 28mm f/1.7 Summilux lens.  That's it . . .28mm which is a focal length that, to me, is perfect for travel and street photography.  With a 47 mp sensor however, there's plenty of real estate for cropping. 

Now, I'm not one for doing technical in-depth reviews so I'll let the pictures do the talking.
