On article 5 reasons to choose the Leica Q for street photography (28 comments in total)
In reply to:

plainwhite: I've been seriously considering the Q for some time now. What's still keeping me for acquiring one is the focal length (I prefer 35mm) and the lack of weather-sealing.

Once those two things are taken care of, there will not be any reason not to purchase one anymore.

My 2cents

@ luck002:

The Leica X-U is not full-frame; it has no viewfinder. But at least it has the weather-sealing.

As they say, "Close, but no cigar".

cprevost: I am also jumping ship. I've never owned anything but a Mac since the 90's. Microsoft is on a roll and seems to understand the needs of creative professionals better than Apple. Never thought I'd say that. This product is brilliant and transforms the way you work with pixels. My MacBook air is going up on eBay and the Surface Book will replace it soon. Wish I had the budget for the Surface Studio because I'd get one in a heartbeat.

My Surface Pro 3 is getting way more use than my Retina MacBook Pro. I plan to get this Surface Studio as my next desktop.

Marksphoto: I think mirrorless is still too young to be useful for pro work. It is however great for enthusiasts due to the great glass availability. Subjects that don't move so that the photographer can think and shoot. The AF is too unintuitive for people/weddings.

No matter what fan boys say, fuji hasn't listened to their clients, which was a major let down, lets face it, we waited so long and all had our hopes up.

No articulating/touch screen -- EXCUSES: if you don't like it, don't buy it, or this camera is not for you then... Well, I have already invested into fuji lenses, so what are my choices now...?

I am willing to wait one or two more years to see if fuji's vision is what pros were hoping for. they got their lens line up right, it only makes sence they will get the body right eventually.

I for one am willing to hang on to their lenses for another year or two and wait for fuji to give us the camera we want, if not I will ebay my glass and look elsewhere.

Hi Mark.

Have you tried the X-T1? It has an articulating screen (though not touch). In the experience of many, its AF is capable of capturing everything short of a sporting event (racing cars, birds in flight, etc...).
Looking through quite a bit of your photographs, I can't imagine that the AF of a DSLR would have been so necessary. I have been able to catch similar scenes just with my X-Pro 1.
Any, just my 2 cents.

You could have used any old kit lens and this lady would have made it look superlative. ;-)
"Just sayin'" as the kids today put it. Cheers.

photominion: Leica Q over this in a heart beat!

That 35mm focal length is looking real sweet!

This is serious equipment for serious work. Quality machines come at a price and the Surface line strikes the right balance for me.

ChrisH37: A rather large elephant in the room that I don't think people are picking up on...you can't actually edit a RAW file natively on an iPad (Photos only pulls the embedded JPEG).

Kinda critical, considering they are pushing this at photo editors.

It's done much more easily and effectively on a Surface Pro 3/4.

You should have asked him if there is an RX2 on the horizon!

On article A second glance: two takes on the Leica X (403 comments in total)

I might have been tempted to purchase the Typ 113 if it had a built in VF and full manual control of the ISO and aperture setting at f/1.7. But alas, there are to many compromises for $3k in my opinion.

Just because a person has money, doesn't mean he shouldn't also have some common sense.

It's nice to see that Aperture has not been completely neglected.
