I truthfully assume this lens goes to be the final word deciding issue for anybody buying a Leica Q2. It has a 28mm focal size however 28mm shouldn’t be essentially for everybody.
Nevertheless, having used some 28mm lenses up to now, the lens on the Leica Q2 feels a barely wider. It’s someplace in between a 24mm and a 28mm. This could possibly be a deal breaker for somebody who loves capturing 28mm. You in all probability would need it to really feel precisely like all of the 28mm lenses you’ve used up to now, nevertheless it does really feel wider in my expertise utilizing it. It’s why it makes a variety of sense for anybody eager about buying a Leica Q2, to first take into account renting the digital camera out first and seeing how they prefer it.
This isn’t one thing a bit little bit of cropping and lens correction can’t repair although, nevertheless it’s value citing as a result of 28mm is a broadly in style focal size for road pictures and why lots of people would possibly gravitate to this digital camera.
I discussed earlier than that 28mm shouldn’t be for everybody. I might personally put myself in that class as I primarily shoot 50mm on most of my cameras. In order that’s motive sufficient for me to not wish to purchase a Leica Q2. The focal size you shoot with is essentially tied to the model and strategy you have got in road pictures, and the 28mm lends its self to extra candid documentary and environmental photos. In the event you love documenting massive occasions, structure, or identical to the “extensive look”. This lens is perhaps for you.
That mentioned, I’ve heard from a number of earlier Leica Q2 homeowners that they offered their Q2s as a result of they grew uninterested in the extensive focal size and didn’t get pleasure from capturing it as a lot as they initially thought. A hard and fast lens digital camera like this at this value level requires a fairly good understanding of how you want shoot.
