Leica Q2 review


The Leica Q2 is an impressively capable fixed-lens, full-frame camera with a 47MP sensor and a sharp, stabilized 28mm F1.7 Summilux lens. It's styled like a traditional Leica M rangefinder and brings a host of updates to the hugely popular original...

The Leica Q2 is Leica's best camera. Or, at least, it's the easiest to justify. It's objectively very good at what it's trying to do, and doesn't have the kinds of omissions or shortcomings - such as the

Leica Q2


Leica's pricey Q2 camera marries a superb lens to a high-resolution image sensor and puts it all in a travel-friendly, weather-sealed package.

High-resolution full-frame image sensor. Quick, accurate autofocus. Bright, sharp lens. Optical stabilization. IP52 weather protection. Big, sharp EVF. Up to 20fps capture. 4K video. Wi-Fi.

Expensive. Doesn't track subjects at top burst rate. No flash.

Bottom Line: Leica's pricey Q2 camera marries a superb lens to a high-resolution image sensor and puts it all in a travel-friendly, weather-sealed package.

Leica Q2 review in progress


The Leica Q2 is a fixed-lens, full-frame camera sporting a new 47.3MP sensor and a sharp, stabilized 28mm F1.7 Summilux lens. It's styled like a traditional Leica M rangefinder and replaces the hugely popular original Leica Q (Typ 116), launched in 2015.

Leica Q2 review


Stunning? Yes. Seriously expensive? You bet.

full-frame sensor ; Fantastic handling ; 4K video

very expensive ; Very niche ; Limited battery life

A gorgeous design and build, with equally gorgeous pictures to boot. But it’s hard to justify the outlay for a camera like this unless you happen to be mega-wealthy. If you want something reasonably similar in operation and style, take a look at the...

Leica Q2 review: The best of the best - but with a price tag to match


The ultimate camera for street photographers, with gorgeous design and features – if you can stomach the price

Stylish design ; Traditional controls ; Full-frame sensor

Expensive ; Fixed lens ; Fixed screen

Overall, there’s a heck of a lot to like about the Leica Q2 – but that might not make you any more likely to buy one.

Test du Leica Q2 : voici le joyau des appareils photo experts !


Si son prix est élevé, le plaisir de shoot et la qualité des fichiers du Leica Q2 en font une véritable invitation à faire des images. Une merveille.

Capteur de 46,7 Mpix ; Qualité d'image ; Simplicité et résistance IP52 ; Electronique performante (rafale, 4k, etc.) ; Cadres de recadrage 35/50/75 mm

Tarif élevé ; Pas de prises physiques (USB, etc.) ; Focale fixe 28 mm

Le luxe, c’est la simplicité et ce Q2 en est la démonstration. Cet appareil à l’aspect épuré, avec peu de commandes, juste ce qu’il faut de fonctions et doté d’une simple focale fixe inamovible est pourtant l’une des meilleures machines à produire des...
