Leica Q2 Monochrom Review

 

Gorgeous wide-angle lens ; 47MP full-frame sensor ; Built for black-and-white images ; 4K DCI video ; IP52 durability rating

Expensive ; Omits in-camera charging ; Traditional glass filters recommended for color balance

The Leica Q2 Monochrom is a speciality version of the Q2, made just for black-and-white imaging. It's not quite as versatile as the color edition, but it will make monochrome specialists happy—for a price.

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 Monochrom Review

 

The Leica Q2 Monochrom is a 35mm full-frame compact camera with a 28mm fixed focal length lens that exclusively only shoots in black and white. With a price tag of £5000 / $6000, is this a niche product that no one will buy, or somebody's idea of a...

Leica Q2 Review

 

To celebrate the release of their new Q2 camera, Leica held an announcement event in New York City, and I took the opportunity to get a brief hands-on with the new camera. Obviously, what stands out most about the Leica Q2 are its new headline...

Leica Q2 Monochrom review

 

The Leica Q2 Monochrom takes the brilliant Leica Q2 and makes it black and white only. How can this possibly make sense?

Black and white image quality ; Build and materials ; Interface design ; Superb Summilux f/1.7 lens

Fixed rear screen ; Quite prone to lens flare ; Focus breathing in video

Leica has not deliberately ‘hobbled’ a regular camera to make it shoot black and white only. The Leica Q2 Monochrom has had the normal color filter array removed to produce a much higher level of black and white image quality than a regular ‘color’...

Leica Q2 Monochrom review

 

A full-frame compact that only shoots in black and white might sound like folly, but the Leica Q2 Monochrom has won us over.

Full-frame 47.3MP sensor Fast f/1.7 maximum aperture Beautiful design and excellent build

That price tag Only shoots black-and-white Fixed 28mm wide-angle lens

There's no doubt that the Q2 Monochrom is extremely expensive for a compact camera, albeit one with a 47.3MP full-frame sensor. And even by Leica standards, it's monochrome-only sensor makes it extremely niche. But it does give photographers who'd like...

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.
