Ababus: And as usual with Lomo the pricing is completely bonkers, for reference it costs approximately 4 times the price of a Fujifilm instax mini (which is a very fine instant camera already).

You're comment feels a bit disingenuous. Feature-wise, this Lomo fits between the Fuji Instax mini 70 ($139 MSRP) and the mini 90 ($179 MSRP): flash on/off, exposure compensation, multiple exposure but no rechargeable batteries. The Lomo has an f/4.5 glass lens, compared to the f/12.7 plastic lenses. This makes the Lomo pricing pretty reasonable, even taking in account the fact the Fujis can easily be found at a 20% or so discount.

JL Auch: I'd buy one in a heat beat if;

-exposure comp worked in manual mode with auto iso

-flash worked with auto iso in manual

-could cycle the evf and lcd with a custom button ala x100t or pen, or panasonic.

Exposure compensation does work in manual mode with auto iso.

Cy A: It is actually possible to navigate between images while zoomed in by holding the "Play" button while turning the rear control dial.

I agree that camera handling could be drastically improved by the firmware fixes recommended by the authors.

You're welcome! Strangely this does not seem to be mentioned in the manual, or at least I couldn't found any mention of this there. I found this trick in a review for an other Leica camera and gave it a try on the Q. It worked.

sgoldswo: This is genuinely one of the best fixed lens cameras I've owned (all such cameras are inherently flawed, but often lots of fun). I've previously owned the Sony RX1 and Fujifilm X100S, the Leica Q focuses faster than either, particularly in low light. The biggest question to ask yourself is whether the focal length is for you, but personally I find 28mm a lot of fun.

Just a note on the review - the sensor performs very differently to the Leica M240. There's more DR and the camera performs (much) better at high ISO.

Some thoughts from me and lots of samples here: http://sgoldswoblog.com/2015/11/11/q-who-user-impressions-of-a-wonder-camera-the-leica-q-typ-116/

AF speed and accurary is outstanding. As a Ricoh GR user, I was worried by the CDAF. AF is fast and accurate in low light whereas the GR was painfully slow.

What impressed me the most is that the Q AF is fast and accurate in strongly backlit situation where my GR would quickly focus on the background (unless you really bumped up exposure compensation a lot).
