Last Leica Q2 Monochrom camera leak before the official announcement

The Japanese GQ published their Leica Q2 Monochrom a bit too early – here is the Google translation:

Leica Camera Co., Ltd. announced the latest model of the Leica Q series, the “Leica Q2 Monochrome”. This digital camera is equipped with a newly developed 35mm full-size sensor dedicated to monochrome photography. The lens is a fixed single focus “Leica Summilux f1.7 / 28mm ASPH.”. Also, like the Leica Q series announced so far, it is equipped with a high-definition organic EL electronic viewfinder.

The image sensor of the 35mm full-size sensor, which is the biggest feature of this camera, has 47.3 million pixels, and high-sensitivity shooting with ISO sensitivity of 100,000 is possible. Depict the subject in detail. Looking at the example, you can see that the thin steel frame of the station is expressed sharply. Macro photography is also possible, and you can easily switch by twisting the lens barrel, and you can shoot at the shortest distance of 17 cm. Also, a function called crop shooting is unique. In addition to the normal 28mm lens angle of view, you can shoot up to a 35mm (30 million pixel) lens, a 50mm (14.7 million pixel) lens, and a 75mm (6.6 million pixel) lens-equivalent angle of view with the push of a button. Despite being a compact digital camera with a fixed lens, it can be said to be a high-performance model equipped with macro to medium telephoto lenses. It also supports 4K quality video recording.

Perhaps it was conscious of a monochrome machine, the appearance unified with matte black except for the engraving is also attractive. Compared to the high-end model Leica M10 Monochrome, the decoration has been cut off. The price is planned to be 740,000 yen excluding tax, and it can be said that it is a very reasonable price as a Leica “introductory machine” and a sub machine for M users. The release date is November 19th. Check out the gallery for camera details and examples.
