Dynamic Range test: Leica Q2 vs Sony A7rIII sensor

Photonstophotos tested the Dynamic Range and noise performance of the new Leica Q2. this is interesting ebcause it’s likely the new Leica uses the same Panasonic S1R sensor.

And as you can see from the graph on top the Leica Q2 sensor can’t quite match the Sony A7rIII sensor performance. Still, we don’t know yet if the Panasonic S1R might be able to score a better result..

Leica CL review by Hugh Brownstone

Hugh writes:

Unequivocally: the CL is a 1/3 the price, 2/3 the weight, 9/10 the image quality in the real world, M10 — with the EVF I wanted AND the autofocus I occasionally need. It is THE most compact, cost effective and aesthetically integrated tool for M-glass, full stop. Of course, reasonable people may disagree, but the bottom line is: I’m trading in my TL2 for one.
