Embrace the Soul of Photography
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.
Features at a glance:
– New 47mp full frame black and white sensor for stills and 4K video

New 47.3 megapixel Monochrome Sensor
State of the art technology and a brand new
microlens design result in a completely
new monochrome sensor, exclusively
developed for the Leica Q2 Monochrom.
47.3 megapixels reproduce the finest structures
and low noise. Even at the max ISO of 100,000 the
Q2 Monochrom creates images with an
outstanding level detail.
Weather Sealing & Other Favorite Q2 Features
The Q2 Monochrom, like the Q2 it is based on,
benefits from IP 52-rated weather sealing against
dust and spray water. Additionally, it shares the
same crisply detailed OLED electronic viewfinder,
impressive battery life (BP-SCL4 battery),
manually-controllable 4K video recording, Leica
FOTOS connectivity with Wi-Fi/Bluetooth and
intuitive menu system.
Now with no color settings to worry about, the Q2
Monochrom has an even further streamlined menu.
Matte Black & Monochromatic Design
Inspired by the design elements established with
the M10 Monochrom, the Q2 Monochrom is
painted with a matte black finish and all
engravings are filled in with only gray, white, or
black. The omission of the Leica red dot logo
keeps the design elegantly subdued and stealthy.
New and Existing Accessories
Adding to the vast repertoire of fully compatible
Q2 accessories, there will also be new color filters
in E49 size for controlling contrast and tonality the
"old school" way. A new handgrip for the Q2
Monochrom perfectly matches the grain of the
leatherette for a seamless look and feel.
