EISA Awards Leica Q Premium Compact Camera 2015-2016

EISA has awarded the Leica Q (Type 116) camera the "European Premium Camera of 2015-2016." They write, "The Leica Q is a hugely impressive camera that combines state-of-the-art technology with traditional design. The 28mm wide-angle lens is incredibly sharp and the fast electronic shutter, means you can shoot wide open at f/1.7 even in bright sunlight. The 24-million-pixel full frame sensor gives superb image quality, even at high ISO settings, and the traditional control dials give intuitive shooting. The 3.7M-dot electronic viewfinder pairs well with the smoothly-damped focus ring for manual focusing, while the touchscreen makes autofocusing away from the centre of the frame easy. These elements all combine to make the Q the best digital camera Leica has yet made, despite its high price."
