Why doesn't the Leica Q show up?
In my opinion the best innovation in 2015 in the field.

It's fast enough; definitely faster than the S95.
HOWEVER before you buy one weigh the following point:
> I had an RX 100 and loved it, especially as I could photograph in RAW + JPG in black and white (see my square BW images on the screen and know I could always go back to the full-frame color RAW image if needed.
Now, the RX 100 III does not authorize the recording of the RAW image wit the bw JPG one. If one shoots JPG bw one only gets the JPG bw.
In my opinion this is a very stupid change in software for a camera that taps into an audience that would rather use raw and the possibilities of multiformat BW images (while photographing, and NOT in front of one's computer) than their cell-phones. Kinda ludicrous move!!!

It is a very pleasing... and frustrating camera to use.
Image quality and possibilities are great.

Points in dire need of improvement:
1-AF focusing (slow and can simply be erratic, I have had too many bad surprises).
2-M-focusing can be improved too.
3-precision of the frame in the OVF should definitely be improved with the next update of the firmware.
4-we need a 23 mm f 2 or f 1.4, fast... please this is the OBVIOUS lens with a range-finder or alias range-finder!!! I need a wider angle than the 35 mm but not as wide as the 18 mm (with fewer distortion and less loss of sharpness in corners at full aperture).

Finally an alternative to the M9 that comes at a relatively reasonable price, innovates in a rather esthetic and ergonomic body. If the promises are held and the lenses up to the quality of the one on the X100, these cameras will mark the definite return of Fuji among the great camera makers, appreciated and used by professionals and exacting amateurs alike.
