It's been almost 4 years since the original Leica Q was announced, and there have been some big upgrades. The resolution is up 200%, weather sealed added, OLED EVF, 4K video and the new Maestro processor promises to maintain the speed and responsiveness of the original. But can it really deliver? And is the unchanged optical formula up to the task of a 47mp sensor?? Let's find out.

NOTE - This is NOT paid, promoted, reviewed or sponsored in anyway by Leica. Earlier this year I did shoot a paid campaign for Leica USA, however this is entirely separate and the opinions shared here are entirely my own.
