Leica Q2 Instead of an X100V!

The much better camera

Since you can’t get a Fuji x100v, come May, I’ll seriously consider a Leica Q2.

When I see the x100v at $2000 – $2500 then I think “Why not just buy a Leica and stop kidding myself”. I don’t care for excessive bling or overpriced anything. But the whole TikTok bullshit that sent the X100V into unobtanium mode really ruined my feelings for what seemed like a great “poor mans Leica”. Once that happened, very oddly enough, all of a sudden what seemed like yet another overpriced bling camera from Leica now seems like a better value.

I guess everything is inflated these days. Is this the new norm? I fear it is.

The more I scan my 1980’s film negs the more anxious I am to do street photography. Instead of big dangerous cities it will be smaller towns. In fact I’ll return to my roots – growing up in a town of only 7000 and that was the biggest town in the county has never left me. In fact, on a recent trip to visit my brother in law in tiny Canyonville, OR I found several great things to photograph.

Just musing, I’m in no hurry and can think about this for months. Too bad the Leica CL is no longer – that even would have been a better value. Plus I like the two wheels and LCD window that approximated real camera dials.
