Leica introduces the Leica Q-P, another Leica Q compact camera with a full-frame sensor. The technical specifications of the Leica Q-P are identical to those of the serial Leica Q.The difference is in the camera design...
Leica hat die neue Leica M10-D vorgestellt, die sich wie auch der Vorgänger dadurch auszeichnet, dass sie kein Display hat. Das technische Innenleben entspricht der Leica M10. Äußerlich sind sämtliche Elemente auf der Kamerarückseite entfallen – kein Display, keine Buttons und keine Kreuzwippe.
Well, I have to say your time was well spent because you came away not only with an understanding of a lifestyle most of us only read about, but withs powerful series of outstanding documentary photographs. My congratulations
If you could live with a 28mm lens only, I'd opt for the Leica Q - you'd get full frame, superb low light performance, and fabulous IQ for $4K. (It will also allow for 35mm and 50mm apsc sized images).
The 18-56 is not a fast lens but the CL sensor should be more sensitive in low light, so will outperform the X Vario in low light situations. Whether it is worth $5-7K is your judgment call.
Yep, that was the one, Dave. I missed the red flag until after I closed the deal. I wanted to see what shipping outfit he was going to use, and it referenced the package as coming from Switzerland. If I had checked that first, then I'd have known it was a scam. I just thought it was some new seller who couldn't get his descriptions right (no mention of the OVF). The next day when it was posted as shipped, but no information was given, I had that sinking feeling. So far I've received no reply from the e-mail I sent the "seller" asking for the shipping information. Looks like I'll be filing a claim soon.
Maybe I should just save up for a M10-P instead.
