Leica Q3
« on: May 25, 2023, 10:03:07 am »

I was looking at this new full-frame camera and it interests me in many ways except one -- why on earth would they limit it to a fixed 28mm lens? That takes it off the table for me. Why not, say, a 28-105 zoom?

Grumble.

Yawn all you want but the truth is the lens is not sharp in the corners. Not great for such a short lens. Anyway an interchange Q3 would have been too much production and profit for Leica not to mention killed the M system which is doomed anyway for some of us.

Ask yourself if you have to produce high quality images using a 28mm lens for submission to get a project what lens would you use? If you're just taking snapshots for the web like 90% of Q buyers who cares.
