As usual these days Dpreview reviews are a dogs dinner. Lots of contradictions and errors.. e.g. 'The Q is both low profile (with some gaffer tape over that red dot) and responsive. It's a great combination for street shooting. If 28mm feels too wide, at least you have 24MP to crop with.' ???
- JPEG engine and JPEG customization lacking
So you pay £3000 and shoot jpgs? Really?
- Severe lack of customization options
This is a PRO.
- Card write times are slow if you shoot both Raw and JPEG
Not if you use a fast card
- Video mode is uncompetitive
That is simply not true. The video on the Q is excellent and has really good stabilisation for hand holding.
The whole emphasis is around what Dpreview call the 'Q's various quirks and shortcomings' Well I suppose if you're a gimmick loving gear head then that may be the case. But then the Leica Q (Typ 601) is a photographers camera, something Dpreview have a hard time understanding, since they don't seem to have many of them working on the site.
