  • I'd like to see a replacement but I think the price cuts could be as much about clearing stock before everyone looking for FF compact just pays the extra and buys the Leica Q. The RX1/R is capable ...
  • It's not low light performance per se that is better, it's long exposures (the type you'd do for astrophotography or when using ND filters to blur clouds/water). The E-M1 seems to suffer a lot ...
  • The AF speed is the biggest gripe with the RX1 for me, I can live without an EVF but in low light the AF is really quite poor and even in good light it can hunt when any modern camera will lock ...
  • Surprised the distributor (Lacklands) was selling on TM, you sure it wasn't one of the resellers? There are about 5 authorized resellers in NZ but they all get their Leica kit from 1 distributor.
  • Fellow kiwi, preordered back in June and getting the same story. I've also heard that Leica Australia are trying to muscle out the current NZ distributor and that is making the situation even ...
  • I used my RX100 in light rain and never had any problems. Sadly, when my wife took photos on a nearby beach it died pretty fast :( She never put it on the sand but thought she was doing the right ...
  • If I already had an M then I would probably get the lens, otherwise I'd get the Q (this is what I am doing).
  • Just ignore this review, posted two months ago (and nothing else ever posted by the OP), it's clearly someone trolling. The Q is expensive for sure and it's limited by the fixed lens but anyone ...
  • Thanks, that's pretty much bang on with my thoughts. Pick up any reasonably modern camera and it's technically capable of producing a great image but there are some (the E-M1 is one for me) that ...
  • Some lovely shots, how are you liking the Q so far? I see you also have the E-M1 which I love, how does the AF compare? I am stuck between keeping my E-M1 and buying the Q or swapping to the A7RII. ...
  • If you are really enjoying the X100T then I'd spend the money on a holiday instead. I say that as someone who has ordered a Q and is awaiting delivery but I sold an RX1 to part fund mine and have ...
  • I don't mind the 3rd one, shame about the distracting lantern top left, but the first isn't straight and the second one either needs a tighter crop to remove the couple in the top left or needed ...
  • I started off with Panasonic, switched to Olympus purely because I loved the E-M1 so much and nothing has yet tempted me away.
  • Couple from the beach, trying the Pana 25mm with E-M1, not my favorite length but have to love the quality of the lens.
  • I live in New Zealand so can't help you with where to order in the States :(
  • I faced the same question and I've opted for the Q for two main reasons, both highly personal: 1) I suffer from GAS so not being able to buy (too) many lenses is a positive and means I concentrate ...
  • I've ordered: UV filter & Polariser GGS Screen Protector (D-Lux 6 model) Leica Grip Spare battery (Panasonic version) Black Leica Logo Tieherup Komboloi wrist strap That should do the job for me ...
  • That feedback makes me very happy John, I'm waiting on my Q to arrive as a replacement for my RX1 and AF speed is a big factor in my switch.
  • I don't have my Q yet but I have ready the JPEGs are pretty average, I'll just shoot both (since you can't shoot only DNG at the moment) and use the JPEGs where they are good enough. The only real ...
  • I think the difference is that Leica can charge a premium and people will pay it even for a "niche" camera but Sony really didn't see enough sales of the RX1 to justify an RX2. I'd love to be wrong ...
