Until recently the Sony RX1 and the Sony RX1-R (both £2,149/$2,789) were the only full-frame digital compact cameras available. However, these have just been joined by the Leica Q Typ 116. Unlike some of Leica’s other lightweight cameras, the Leica Q (Typ 116) isn’t created by Panasonic, but is created by Leica itself in Germany. Inside the Leica Q (Typ 116) is a full-frame (24 x 36mm) CMOS sensor with 24.2 million effective pixels and a Leica Maestro II processing engine. The lens is a fixedfocal- size Leica Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH optic, helping to make good ‘walkabout’ lens, with lots of scope for restricting level of field. The sensitivity might be set from ISO 100 to 50,000, and there’s a maximum continuous shooting rate of up to 10fps (frames per second) at full resolution. The Leica Q Typ 116 looks and seems like a mini Leica M. It’s beautifully built and seems right at home among Leica’s rangefinder models. Nevertheless, in a trio of moves that some may consider controversial for Leica, there’s a 3,680,000-dot electronic viewfinder; the 3-inch 1,040,000-dot screen on the rear is touch-sensitive; and though the lens could be focused manually, there’s a fairly snappy autofocus system. I utilized the Leica Q (Typ 116) for a week before its launch, and it’s a delight. The traditional visibility controls allow quick changes and even automatic and semi-automatic shooting modes, as well as the image quality is positively superb. Our full review is coming soon.
