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


We get to try out the 47-megapixel Leica Q2 compact camera. This is our verdict, with lab test results…

• Superb image quality ; • Great range of autofocus and manual focus controls ; • The beautiful feel and engineering

• The price (if you have to ask, you probably can't afford it) ; • The LCD panel is fixed ; • No built-in flash

The Leica Q is one of our favorite compact cameras... and based on our brief time using this full-frame compat on we can already feel that that there is a new love in our life. Yes, the Leica Q2 is expensive – but if you want the absolute in luxury...

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’...
