    Sign in to follow this  

    The series of Leica Q cameras is known for its attractiveness and timeless design. The latest generation uses these advantages, but takes them to a higher level and offers new functions. The camera will perfectly fulfil its role in street, landscape, photojournalism and architecture photography.

    The camera has a fixed Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH lens, which is in-built in the body. The lens consists of 11 elements placed in 9 groups, among which there are 3 aspherical lenses. If this focal length limits us in any way, the camera is also equipped with the digital 1.2× – 35mm, 1.5× 50mm and 2× 75mm zoom. But if we use it, the image will be simply cropped and its resolution will decrease.

    Leica Q2 has a full-frame sensor with huge 47MP resolution. The first generation of the compact camera used “merely” 24MP sensor. The sensor is supported by a well-known Maestro II processor, which enables using the ISO range of 50-50000 and taking photographs (in JPEG and DNG) with the speed of 10f/s.


    The autofocus is a well-known phase-detection system with 49 AF points. The mechanical shutter has the time range of 60-1/2000s and the electronic one – 60-1/40,000s.

    The camera is equipped with the film-making functions and registers materials in 4K (30/24p) and Full HD (120/60/30/24p).


    The camera’s body is made of the magnesium alloy and is fully sealed. The in-built electronic viewfinder has been made in OLED technology with the resolution of 3.68 million points. The screen is a non-rotating 3’’ touch LCD one with the resolution of 1,040,000 points.

    The new Leica Q2 also has wireless functions, namely Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, with the possibility of convenient operation of the Fotos mobile application. We should also not complain about the battery capacity. A fully-charged BP-SCL4 rechargeable battery should enable taking 370 photographs.

    Leica Q2 is already available on sale. As could be expected from Leica, the price is  $4,999.
