Leica Q2 Sensor Review (DXOMark)

Angela Nicholson has just posted a full sensor review of the newly announced Leica Q2,( B&H/ Adorama/ Amazon) at the DXOMark.com. The Leica Q2’s sensor achieved an overall score of 96, in 10th position in sensor ranking sitting in second place among compact cameras, just behind the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II.

The Leica Q2 has a high-resolution sensor that puts it on par with Panasonic’s flagship Lumix DC-S1R, and although it doesn’t quite match that camera’s stellar performance, it’s clear that the Q2 is capable of producing superb-quality images—so much so that it ranks in the top 10 of all the cameras we have tested, with its strongest suit being its ability to render color well. This, combined with its extreme portability, makes the Q2 a very attractive option for landscape, street, and travel photographers…

Unfortunately, Leica Q2 is currently out of stock in US. You can only pre-order at  B&H/ Adorama/ Amazon on “a first come first serve basis”.
