Aperture range: The big aperture and the wide lens of the Leica Q is a enough larger than that of the Sony RX1R the result will allow to enter much amount of light onto the sensor and that’s making it ideal for given light conditions and by this way the camera will be the best choice for the portraits, street, architectural and landscape photographers but on the other hand Sony RX1R has a smaller range of aperture.

 Image stabilizationsThe optical IS engineered in Sony RX1R will not allow blurry part into the list of problems that occurred due to unnecessary camera shake but image stabilization doesn’t make place inside the Leica q.

 ISO- 50000 range of iso inside the Leica Q helps you to give your best performance in low light conditions by better freezing the subjects with reducing the noise from the images but the ISO range is restricted to 25600 only in Sony RX1R.

 AF points- However both the two cameras has inbuilt contrast detect autofocus system but unluckily, Leica q hasn’t disclosed the exact AF points but with 25 distinct points of AF been involved in the specifications of  Sony RX1R to provide you a precise and accurate shots of the images.
