Leica Announces Q2 Full-frame Fixed-lens Camera

  By Kaitlyn Kerr

Leica has announced the successor to their popular full-frame fixed lens camera, the Q2. The camera features a 47.3 megapixel sensor and a fixed Summilux 28mm f1.7 ASPH lens.

The new camera keeps the same form factor and handling as the original Q. A new higher resolution sensor has been developed, featuring 47.3 megapixels and 4K video capabilities. An integrated digital zoom now allows the user to crop to 35mm, 50mm, and 75mm frames for JPEG files (the camera will save the original 28mm DNG file if set to do so). A new electronic viewfinder has also been developed for this camera with a 3.68 megapixel resolution. The camera also features fast autofocus and a shooting speed of 10 frames per second. A new Maestro II processor helps facilitate this.

The Leica Q2 is available for preorder now at a price of $6992.95.
