Super slim, great viewfinder, simple UI, and fantastic handling. It’s like a Q2 but smaller and with interchangeable lenses.
Traded up the fp for this. It is the fp on steroids! Something to be said about carrying around a 60mp sensor, more responsive AF, and the ability to carry lenses with an added 50% focal length when needed. All in a super tiny package.
The only negative I keep running into? Not a lot of ‘grab’ to mount/remove the lens. Unless you use the provided hood to hold it for the twisting…
Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2
Sigma 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | C
Sigma 90mm F2.8 DG DN | C
Nice compact lens, but honestly, after using the Voigltander 35 f/1.2, I would have purchased the 50mm from that company instead.
What a great compact portrait lens that is!

Got a fantastic deal on it. Can’t beat the tonality but was a bit too long in the tooth in terms of buttons management. Also, once you use an M10 it’s very hard to go back to typ 246, feels like a dinosaur.
The most enjoyable camera I’ve ever owned, after my M10-R that is. With the Q you can’t really miss a moment, and the quality is always there. I did find the lens too unbalanced with the body, which is also a bit big.
Quite possibly one of the best all around cameras at the time. Tons of features. Lots of customization. Too bulky and AF video is not reliable. Highly recommended for sports shooters though.
Sigma fp
This camera rarely disappoints. Super portable, extremely well-built, fantastic image quality, and amazing series I lenses to pair it with.
