Leica Q2 Monochrom
To this day, black and white photography continues to exude a unique fascination, mystery and beauty. Compared with color photography, it is the most authentic manifestation of "painting with light". Leica Monochrom cameras give photographers direct access to this captivating form of visual expression.
Welcome the latest member of the Leica Monochrom family, the Q2 Monochrom – the world’s first full-frame digital compact camera to feature a dedicated monochrome sensor.
With its 47.3 megapixel resolution, exceedingly sharp and fast Summilux 28 f/1.7 ASPH. lens, quick and precise autofocus and crisp OLED viewfinder, the Leica Q2 Monochrom is an intuitive tool for timeless monochrome photography with an inherent focus on the essentials for the modern-day photographer.
The Q2 Monochrom is true to form with its resilient matte-black body and time-honored engravings inlaid in discreet grey and white.
A conscious omission of the classic red Leica logo marks the dedication of the Q2 Monochrom’s commitment to black & white.
Leica Camera is excited to announce a brand new groundbreaking addition to the storied Leica Monochrom family of cameras. The Leica Q2 Monochrom bridges the gap between technical innovations and modern features to the historic legacy of black & white photography tracing back through Leica's heritage. This is the only camera of its kind: the first full frame compact camera ever to be made with a dedicated monochrome sensor – bringing with it much of the fan-favorite features of the Leica Q2 with welcome refinements to its design and style.
The Leica Q2 Monochrom touts a brand new 47 megapixel full frame monochrome sensor based on its sibling model, the Leica Q2. Amazing sharpness, detail and resolution combines with a higher dynamic range to give photographers the best black & white image quality that is more accessible and approachable than ever before thanks to the easy-to-use, fast auto-focusing Q2 Monochrom. The expanded ISO range of 100-100,000 with the Summilux 28 f/1.7 ASPH. lens enables photographers to capture stills and 4K video in any light, and all the amazing functionality improvements of the Q2 – such as weather sealing and the OLED viewfinder – remain on tap to encourage users to bring the Q2 Monochrom anywhere and tackle any task.
