Features and technical details

Back-to-basics design, state-of-the-art features The 47.3-megapixel Q2's high-performance optics lets you take fantastic images in automatic and manual modes. Leica's Q2 camera offers a long list of modern features that can help you produce brilliant-looking images with just the press of the shutter button. But for me, that's not its biggest attraction. What I love about this camera's design is the way it takes me back to the foundation of good photography. I like thinking in terms of the most basic camera setting variables: F-stop, shutter speed, ISO, and focus. The Q2 - and its siblings, the Q2 Reporter and the black and white Q2 Monochrom - really invite you to ditch the menus and work in manual mode to get the effects you want. A tradition of optic excellence I learned photography on my dad's old 1950s Leica M3, and I bet it's still taking great images for the lucky person he eventually sold it to. I carried it around with me in high school and college, and it traveled along with me in my backpack across Europe in the early '90s. It really took a beating, but that rock-solid, precise German design and build always functioned flawlessly, and took great photos. The Q2 has that same durable precision. The fixed prime Summilux 28mm lens has a maximum aperture of f/1.7 so it performs beautifully in low light. You can't change the lens, so that's one less thing to think about - although you can use the digital zoom crop modes to approximate 35mm, 50mm, and 75mm lenses. Modern technology and options There's a lot to be thankful for with regard the Q2's modern features. The full frame 47.3-megapixel sensor can capture intricate detail. The amazing ISO range - 50-50,000 - means low light is rarely a problem. Rely on high-speed autofocus or use aperture or shutter speed priority to have the camera give you an assist in composing shots. Shoot 4K video when you'd rather save the moment as motion instead of stills. Use the 3" touchscreen for focusing, shooting, and more wi
