    Leica released a new camera, called "Q". This is the first time that Leica has paired a fixed lens with a 24MP full-frame sensor. It has a fixed "Leica Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH lens". It also has touch screen control, autofocus and a electronic viewfinder.

    Price: $4,250

    It seems like it's a great camera (According to all the reviews that I've read so far). The only downside is that it has a fixed 28mm lens (You can't change the lens).

    What do you think about the Q?

    I was thinking in buying a full-frame camera for travelling. So the Q seems to be a good option. But the fact that you can't change the lens sucks. I'm not sure if I should buy the Leica Q or the Sony A7RII.

    If you want to do shots from farther away, then it isn't worth getting, since you can't put a more powerful lens on.
