Couldn't help myself. Apparently I have the determination of an ameba.

I went in and part-exed my X113 + accessories for the new Q.

So I now have Q + Leica grip for it. Haven't really had the chance to shoot much with it, since weather has already turned dodgy & murky around here but it does feel nice in hand. Also from the little testing, the EVF is fantastic.

Also I now need to work on my discipline again.. too easy to get careless with this one. Have to start treating it like an M.

I'll report back when I've got some real experiences with it.

Very nice - congrats! The Q is a nice camera. As long as you like the 28mm focal length... Personally, I'd have preferred 35mm. But the camera is definitely solid.

I second the congratulations! Looking forward to seeing some of your work with the new "axe."

Here's a few first samples from a recent trip to Grand Canyon. We flew a chopper from Vegas to GC.

Great shots, Juha! I hope you kept an eye out for rattlesnakes and other dangerous desert denizens. :o

Your first 2 photographs remind me of a similar ride I took up the San Joaquin River into the Sierras when I worked for Southern California Edison. I was flying from Fresno to our Big Creek Hydroelectric complex, and the company pilot was a former helivac pilot in Vietnam. Instead of flying over the gradually narrowing and deepening canyon, we flew inside it. As the sheer rock walls continued to tower over us on all sides, the trip seemed to become more of an "E ticket" ride! 8-)

I'm envious...I've never been to the Grand Canyon. :mrgreen:

Here's one more with the Q. Our town holds every year a small event when they fire up the Christmas lights on the main street. Had my Q with me and grabbed a quick portrait of my wife and 4 year old daughter.

Has anyone else been blown away by the quality of the new Q? It's that good that the M has gone for a part exchange and it's now Q all the way for me. Why is it good? well, when you long for a bit of assistance in focusing knowing that it will be a big improvement on your hit rate together with the same quality of raw files, you see how temping the deal was.... The build quality just has to be seen and as long as you can live with the 228mm issue you are good to go.
