The Leica Q is the tool of choice when it comes to capturing fleeting moments. With one of the fastest lenses (Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH.) and auto-focus in its class, it's ideal for shooting subjects of high-speed with available light.

That makes it a preferred tool for street photography, high-energy editorials or simply capturing family and friends in the spur-of-the-moment, without the need to spend much time fiddling with the settings. 

The Q has a 24 MP, full-­frame CMOS sensor, which allows it to shoot with a super-shallow depth of field and can capture a much wider range of colours than traditional digital cameras. 

Unlike other DSLRs, the Q is mirrorless. When releasing the shutter, the camera doesn't shake to the mirror retracting, which allows for less vibration when the shutter speed is slow. Not having a mirror also allows the lens to sit closer to the actual sensor, allowing more detail and quality to be retained in the image.

The Q weighs 690g with strap and battery, making it lightweight enough to hold single-handed.

With the easy handling of a point-and-shoot, but the in-depth customisation and high-definition imagery of a professional camera, the Leica Q is the camera for those that want a single tool for every moment in life.

The Leica Q is compatible with the Leica FOTOS App that allows you to control the camera remotely and instantly transfer images to your mobile phone via the camera's inbuilt Wi-Fi.

The Q is one of our best-selling cameras and used by a wide spectrum of photographers - from complete amateurs to experienced professionals.
