  • Well, suit yourself. Rob
  • The ZM 35 is larger than Leica 35 Summiluxes, but it is not too big, and it balances quite nicely on the SL. Highly recommended. Rob
  • Do you have a problem with the Q's hood? It adds little to the size and weight of the camera, so I can see no good reason to give up the shading and protection that it offers. Rob
  • Interesting. I owned an RX1 for several years and got some wonderful images from it, but the  combo of Zeiss ZM 35 f/1.4 + SL gives the best performance that I have seen from any 35mm lens. The ZM ...
  • I think you will find that the output from the Q is absolutely stunning. The Sony beats it only in MP and DR, neither of which is as critical as many people think in normal usage, not viewing at ...
  • This I cannot explain. Perhaps someone else can. I suggest that you stop worrying about it, and return the camera for exchange. Rob
  • I think that there is general agreement that the RX1 family are capable of taking wonderful images but that using them can sometimes be slow and frustrating. And if you think that their low light ...
  • I have had the Q for about 8 months, and I can confidently say that it is the fastest and most accurate AF camera that I have ever used. Either you are doing something wrong, or the camera is ...
  • I have been using the ZM 35 f/1.4 on my SL. It's probably the best lens that I have. The profile that I have found works best is the one for the Summicron 28 ASPH, because it is better at ...
  • Replied in Q and OIS
    I also have not seen any significant decrement in IQ when using IBS while hand-holding the camera, and I'm sure that in many instances, there is improvement, as there is always some camera shake. ...
  • I am constantly amused by people who think that the Q is HUUUGE. No, its size is perfect, unless you want a pocketable camera, which is another class altogether. I owned an RX1 for several years, ...
  • Replied in SIDON
    Very well done. Rob
  • Of course it doesn't. There is no perfect camera. They all involve compromises and tradeoffs. Rob
  • I know the feeling. In my case, the Q led to an SL. If you are in the market for a 35mm lens, I highly recommend the Zeiss ZM 35 f/1.4. It is widely regarded as one of the finest 35mm lenses ever ...
  • The CV 50 f/1.5 Nokton was one of my favorite lenses on a Sony A7ii, and now it is one of my favorites on an SL. I cannot imagine how the Summilux 50 can be much better in the IQ department. Rob
  • You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but I have never heard anyone else describe the RX1Rii as "crushingly superior" to the Q. Perhaps it is in certain circumstances or when viewing at ...
  • With all due respect, calling the Q "good enough" suggests that the images it produces are mostly OK, but not great. This does not match my experience with the camera, as I find most of the files ...
  • I love that long-haired dog, but I wonder how he/she can see the world with all that hair covering the eyes. I use MF lenses exclusively with my SL, and I have found that I can often achieve good ...
  • Replied in Smeary Idea
    Here are a couple of shots taken with the CV 50 f/1.5 Nokton on a Sony A7ii. I did not perform comparisons to other lenses, but I think that these photos speak to the quality of the lens on that ...
  • What you say is true, but there is also the example of the Summilux 1.7 on the Leica Q that has huge barrel distortion that requires software correction. I realize that this was a compromise that ...
