Leica Q2 camera sensor test review posted at DxOMark



DxOMark just published their analysis of the Leica Q2 camera sensor. Here is their conclusion:

Although at one point compact cameras routinely accepted 35mm film, full-frame compact digital cameras are very rare. The Leica Q2 has a high-resolution sensor that puts it on par with Panasonic’s flagship Lumix DC-S1R, and although it doesn’t quite match that camera’s stellar performance, it’s clear that the Q2 is capable of producing superb-quality images—so much so that it ranks in the top 10 of all the cameras we have tested, with its strongest suit being its ability to render color well. This, combined with its extreme portability, makes the Q2 a very attractive option for landscape, street, and travel photographers.

Press release:

PARIS - June 5, 2019 - DxOMark has just published the results of its in-depth analysis of the Leica Q2 camera sensor.

The Leica Q2 (Type 4889) is the high-resolution update to the Leica Q (Type 116). As such, the Q2 is a full-frame compact camera whose sensor has an effective pixel count of 47.3 million, and its fixed 28mm f/1.7 lens has been tailored to suit this higher resolution.

The Leica Q2’s sensor achieved an overall score of 96 in our tests, which puts it in 10th position in our sensor ranking, and in second place among compact cameras. The Q2’s strongest sub-score is for Portrait (color depth), which hits a peak of 26.4 bits, the 4th-highest value we’ve measured for any sensor—including medium-format units.
