Leica Q Typ 116 Review (DxOMark): Best Low-light Camera


Kevin Carter has just posted a full review of the new announced Leica Q (TYP 116) at the DxOMark. With an overall DxOMark score of 85 points, Leica Q Typ 116 is the best low-light, high-ISO performance of any Leica to date, albeit only a slight improvement over the full-frame Leica M.

Leica’s best low-light camera“, Conclusion from DxOMark: “The Leica Q is a thoroughly modern and likable camera with a very impressive sensor. While it is close in performance to the CMOS in the Leica M, it is clearly a different sensor with slightly lower noise and improved high-ISO dynamic range. While that has implications for the dynamic range at base ISO, it remains competitive and offers excellent, nuanced color and low noise. If the field of view of the fixed 28mm focal length lens appeals, then anyone who likes working with the Leica M series will surely be tempted by the performance of this new model.…”
