Expand your creative potential
New 47.3 mp sensor and extended digital zoom
The Leica Q2 features a newly developed 47.3 megapixel full frame sensor that captures both richly-detailed still pictures and 4K video in brilliant quality at ISO sensitivities up to 50,000.
The combination of the fastest lens in its class and the high sensor resolution expands the flexibility available for subject composition and, thanks to the integrated digital zoom function, also enables you to choose subject framing corresponding to focal lengths of 28, 35, 50, and 75 mm while always preserving the original 47.3 megapixel resolution image from the full sensor in DNG raw format.
Brave the elements
Get the shot every time, anywhere
The Leica Q2 is the only camera in its class to feature IP52* protective sealing against dust and spraywater. This means that it can brave even unfavourable conditions with ease. Shoot without fear and pay attention to what really matters – getting the perfect picture.
*Ingress Protection, class 52: Protected against dust in damaging quantities. Protected against dripping water when body is tilted at 15°.
One lens, limitless potential
Primed for perfection, day or night
The fast maximum aperture of f/1.7 is ideal for capturing the world with your subject standing out in incredible sharpness while the background blurs into a beautiful void, and guarantees you outstanding imaging performance in even the most difficult lighting situations.
With its digital zoom of up to 75 mm, the Leica Q2 can make a perfect companion for street photography as well as shooting architecture, landscapes, and portraits.
A simple turn of the integrated macro mode dial on the lens quickly pulls the Leica Q2’s close-focus distance down to just 17 cm to capture close-up shots with razor sharp precision, while right beside it is a locking focus ring for instantaneous switching between manual and auto focus modes.
A clear view at all times
With the new OLED viewfinder
The newly developed, high-resolution OLED viewfinder has a resolution of 3.68 megapixels. The high resolution provides an ideal view and live preview of your subject at all times, with improved image depth and higher contrast. Surpassing the previous generation’s LCD EVF technology, the brightness of each individual pixel in the OLED viewfinder of the Q2 is independently controlled – yielding improved contrast and color depth. Power consumption remains low even with the strength of the high-resolution EVF.
The viewfinder is activated as soon as the camera is brought up to the eye and shows the subject reliably and without any perceptible delays. The new Leica Q2 also offers a unique and intuitive handling concept, such as its redesigned push-button diopter setting dial on the back of the camera that prevents inadvertent shifting of the compensation value.
High speed performance
Capture fleeting moments with unparalleled precision
To ensure you never miss a treasured moment, the Leica Q2 boasts an autofocus system that sharply focuses on your subject in 0.15 seconds, the fastest in its class. With its high-speed burst shooting rate of an impressive 10 frames per second at the full resolution of 47.3 MP, the Leica Q2 is built to capture what you want, whenever you need.
Push your creativity beyond still-images
With the new 4k video function
The combination of the excellent Leica Summilux lens and the ability to capture video with 4K resolution unlocks new creative perspectives. For brilliant, true-to-life moving pictures, the new Leica Q2 offers a 4K video mode with 3840 x 2160 pixels and frame rates of 30 or 24 frames per second. Alternatively, video footage can also be captured in the familiar full-HD format with 120, 60, 30, or 24 frames per second.
With the new Leica FOTOS App
The new Leica Q2 features energy-saving Bluetooth connectivity for fast, wireless connection. After setting it up for the first time, this connection is automatically saved and remains available when the camera is switched off and on again. In combination with the Leica FOTOS App, this makes it possible to quickly and easily share pictures with the whole world on social media at any time, change numerous camera settings from a smartphone, or even remotely control the shutter release of the Leica Q2.
Made in Germany
A tradition of excellence
Reduction to the essentials while fully exploiting all available potentials: the new Leica Q2 is fully committed to the principle of uniting the top-level quality and fundamental functionality.
Only the highest quality materials are used in its construction to ensure maximum endurance and a long service life. The camera body is made from magnesium and offers a confident and rugged, yet exquisite, feel.
Classic form meets innovative function
Elegance in design and handling
The New Leica Q2 features a distinctive thumb rest paired with a sophisticated diamond pattern leather trim to ensure optimum grip and a quintessential elegant charm.
In contrast to the Leica Q, and following the design language established by the Leica M10, the new shutter release button of the Q2 solely controls the camera’s On/Off setting – giving users a confident feel and satisfying haptic feedback that helps keep them in tune with their camera.
