Photos file corruption

For the past few days I’ve been having an issue with Photos. When opening a thumbnail in my library the full size image goes blurry to the extent that it is nearly impossible to make out. This is almost always accompanied by the spinning ball of death. I have to force a shut down of the app but re-opening it does not sort it out. Shutting the Mac down and re-starting it seems to work until I open up specific thumbnails.

I’ve narrowed down the culprits to a series of jpeg from my Leica Q2 uploaded from the camera a few days ago. Once the corruption is initiated it effects all photos not just the Leicas and I could be wrong about the Leica pictures being the guilty ones.

Anyone seen this happen before? What is causing it and apart from deleting the offenders and possibly reloading them from the SD card, is there anything obvious I’m missing?
