Leica, the luxury and very expensive camera manufacturer have launched the Leica Q a 24MP fixed focal length compact camera designed to look and feel not too dissimilar to the high-end M series rangefinder cameras that they are famous for.
The Leica Q comes with many interesting features and is a blend of old school features with the latest in camera technology.
You have the ability to choose between manual or automatic focus and if you prefer being in control of the aperture you can set this manually using the lens.
Other features of note are the full frame CMOS sensor with an ISO range of 100 – 50000 and the fixed 28mm 1.7 ASPH Summilux lens. This marriage between sensor and lens not only creates beautifully sharp images but I believe allows for the highest quality of light to hit the sensor which for me, makes a huge difference in the final results of your images.
The Leica Q is priced at a breath taking £2900! If you would like to find out more about the Leica Q you can visit the Leica website here.
