47.3MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor and Maestro II Processor

Featuring a redeveloped imaging system, the Q2 incorporates a high-resolution 47.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor along with an updated Maestro II image processor, which lends more flexible image creation along with smooth color and tonal rendering, a broad 13-stop dynamic range, low noise, and a wide sensitivity range from ISO 50-50000. Processing capabilities also afford fast shooting performance, up to 10 fps at full-resolution with a mechanical shutter, along with an especially quick 49-area autofocus system. Stills can be recorded as 14-bit DNG files and JPEGs. The added resolution also enables unique digital zoom capabilities to simulate working with different focal length lenses: 30MP images can be created using a 35mm field of view, 15MP images with a 50mm field of view, and 7MP with a 75mm field of view.

Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens

Key to the popularity of the Q-series is the incorporation of a fixed Summilux 28mm f/1.7 wide-angle prime lens, ensuring exceptional imaging performance. Blending Leica's optical know-how with a design perfectly matched to the image sensor, this lens incorporates three aspherical elements to control distortion and spherical aberrations for sharp and accurate rendering.

The fast initial aperture of f/1.7 guarantees optimum picture quality in even the most difficult lighting situations - excelling in low-light conditions and offering improved control over depth of field. Extending its versatility, a dedicated macro focusing position can also be used for working with subjects as close as 17 cm away.

Additionally, with its digital zoom of up to 75mm, the Leica Q2 can make a perfect companion for street photography as well as shooting architecture, landscapes, and portraits. An optical image stabilization unit also helps to compensate for the effects of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting - highlighting the greatest possible creative freedom in composing exceptional black-and-white images.
