The Leica Q has been the biggest surprise to come out of Wetzlar in recent years. It has been more successful than everyone thought it would be and that includes the Leica faithful. A Leica with a fixed 28mm lens just seems like it has a lot going against it.
I was one of the people that when it was introduced was a bit skeptical but I changed my mind when I had the opportunity to demo the camera. It has a great, solid feel, with an excellent lens. As everyone likes to say, you are buying the lens and getting the body for free. If you price a 28mm Summicron that is true. It really is an excellent lens. It is probably not a popular thing to say but in some circumstances the electronic viewfinder is more useful than an optical viewfinder.
As far as the Leica Q-P goes this one line from the Leica website sums It up.
In technical terms, the Leica Q-P is identical to the Leica Q (Typ 116) except for the color of the casing.
Really can’t write much of a review based on that. The real difference is the removal of the red dot from the front of the camera and the Leica script added to the top of the camera. Yes the red dot which for a subsection of the potential customers is the main reason to by the camera. The rope strap that comes with the standard model has been replaced with a brown leather strap. Also an extra battery is thrown in to sweeten the deal. Guess only time will tell if the camera sells in any quantity but I suspect that enough will sell for Leica to justify the special edition.
