'However, like the very best cameras from the brand, the Leica Q (Typ 116) is a pure joy to shoot with. '
'It's five centimetres of pure photo-snapping pleasure, the fruit of 160 years of micro-mechanical know-how. .'
'The Leica Q's photo quality is, of course, terrific; however, Leica's processing decisions and options are not as mainstream as its feature set.'
'Even though it's classified as a compact camera, the X (Typ 113) is on the large side.'
'The built-in pop-up flash worked well indoors, with no red-eye and good overall exposure. '
'No focus peaking.'
