    Would love to see shots at iso100, f/1.7, 1/4000+ showcasing Q's bokeh character.

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    So what are the odds that we see a Panasonic version of this camera down the line? An LX Uber as it would seem. Why else would Panasonic seemingly contribute so much to this home run if it's just for Leica? I could see it going either way, but generally here's hoping. Bet it'd be $2499.

    A Panasonic with a 40/1.7 or 40/2 would be a spiritual successor to the Leica CL... Or a a spiritual successor and FF GF1.

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    My brother-in-law got his hands on a Q for a few days. Here's his response:

    Leica Q Ad

    I have to agree. Wonderful camera!

    As a happy owner of the Voigtlander 40mm f2 Ultron for Nikon, a Panasonic Q with a 40/2 would be an amazing camera. I can't see how they'd do that to Leica though haha.

    As a happy owner of a 40mm you clearly need something else now - how about a 28mm???

    My brother-in-law got a Q to play with. I took this portrait of him at lunch. The Leica Look!
    (SilverFX, too) What a great little camera!

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    Sharpening 40, Details 33 in LR 5.7.1. The files require very little sharpening, comparable to the M9. Colors are quite punchy, a little too much so for my liking. I played around with the files again and realized that the oof areas look better if not too much contrast is added.

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    These are quite good Ashwin. Great colors here and I'm loving the composition on that first photo especially.

    Have you found you have to tone down the orange saturation a bit on the Q? I got mine yesterday and find I need to reduce it a bit but haven't really figured out the sweet spot. -11 orange saturation in LR... What do you use?

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    Received my Leica Q yesterday and had a few hours to play with it. So far, so good. I really enjoy this camera. I shot a lot of frames and the camera did lock up on me on 2 separate occasions so badly that turning it "off" didn't work. I had to remove the battery. Anyway, hopefully a firmware update adds a histogram that we can see while changing exposure compensation. I would also love it the AF points where about half the size they currently are... Sometimes focusing on a face focuses on the nose rather than the eye. Orange tones are a bit high so they should tweak that as well, but maybe the official Lightroom profile will help with this.

    This photo I shot at f/1.7 with a very minor crop. Focus is right on the money with her eyes and there is enough depth of field to get most of her hair in focus as well. ISO 3,200 pushed to ISO 5,000 in post with zero noise reduction...

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    Just purchased a Q today from an eBay seller that was located nearby and he delivered the camera to me this morning. Just starting to get to know the camera and so far I am really liking it. Here is a quick snap of my lady after she reluctantly posed for me in the kitchen. The high contrast exposure and highlight recovery as well as shadow recovery was nothing short of amazing. I also included a macro shot of a flower while testing macro mode.

    Re: Fun with the Leica Q

    Thanks Ashwin, and thanks for your earlier help, even though it helped someone else, you tried and I appreciate it!

    I am pleased and amazed that Leica finally got AF right. It is very fast, beating out the EM-5II in my stop watch timing test and that is something. Low light performance appears to be very good too. Dynamic range and recovery are the best I have seen, I think beating out the A7II which is pretty darn good.

    As you have had the camera a bit longer, is there anyway when reviewing images in the camera to switch between images at magnification, i.e. without going back to unmagnified view in between? I tried swiping, the thumb wheel and the arrows and nothing seemed to let me change images.

    Ashwin, Great Images.

    I recognized you at the steakhouse last night and wanted to ask you about how you're liking the Leica Q.

    Best, Derek

    Ha, that is great, Derek. You should have swung by to say hi. I am loving the Q. The steaks were so filling that I went on a beach walk and took those pics to walk off the steak . The Q is a great companion as such

    Have you found you have to tone down the orange saturation a bit on the Q? I got mine yesterday and find I need to reduce it a bit but haven't really figured out the sweet spot. -11 orange saturation in LR... What do you use?
    So sorry for the delay. Just saw your post. Yes,skin tones can get a bit orange in certain light. I drop the saturation to -10, bump luminance +5, and adjust the hue a bit. Sometimes I just the brush to add a bit of cooler temp...
