Leica Q Cameras (2019) vs Sony α5x00 (Upper-entry APS-C) Mirrorless Cameras (2014)

Analysis:

The Leica Q2 (2019) is an exemplary product and one of the very best Mirrorless Cameras at the $5,000 budget.

The Sony α5100 (2014), however, doesn't seem to have enough data available for us to be able to draw any meaningful conclusions.

The Leica Q2 (2019) managed to impress reviewers from two reliable and unbiased sources that conduct their own hands-on testing, namely shotkit.com, PCmag, and Digital Camera World. It performed great in their roundups - it earned the "BEST LUXURY" title from shotkit.com and "Best for Street and Travel" from PCmag, which makes it a product worthy of consideration.

Moving on to the Sony α5100 (2014): it did great in a number of roundups that were conducted by sources that perform their own hands-on testing, such as shotkit.com, Reviewed, and TrustedReviews - it was dubbed "Top Pick" by shotkit.com, "Ranked 3 out of 5" by Reviewed, and "Ranked 1 out of 11" by TrustedReviews, which indicates that it's worthy of consideration.

When we thoroughly analyzed their review scores, we learned that all of the sources that tested both Mirrorless Cameras, including DXOMARK, PCmag, and Expert Reviews, preferred the Leica Q2 (2019) over the Sony α5100 (2014).

We also took a look at which sources they managed to impress the most. The Leica Q2 (2019) was liked best by DXOMARK, which gave it a score of 9.4, while the Sony α5100 (2014) got its highest, 10, score from Photography Blog.

Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other Mirrorless Cameras on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by Mirrorless Cameras being 7.9 out of 10, whereas the Leica Q2 (2019) and Sony α5100 (2014) managed averages of 8.5 and 8.3 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct Leica Q2 (2019) vs. Sony α5100 (2014) comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
