In fact, it's the quickest in its class.

On the front of the camera you'll find an image stabilised Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH, while the back features a 3-inch touchscreen, which can be used to manually focus the camera by tapping a certain area, and a 3.68-megapixel electronic viewfinder. Additional features include full HD video recording, built-in Wi-Fi for sharing content, a special Leica Q app for remotely controlling camera settings, and a macro mode.
