One lens, limitless potential
Primed for perfection, day or night
The fast maximum aperture of f/1.7 is ideal for capturing the world with your subject standing out in incredible sharpness while the background blurs into a beautiful void, and guarantees you outstanding imaging performance in even the most difficult lighting situations.
With its digital zoom of up to 75 mm, the Leica Q2 can make a perfect companion for street photography as well as shooting architecture, landscapes, and portraits.
A clear view at all times
With the new OLED viewfinder
The newly developed, high-resolution OLED viewfinder has a resolution of 3.68 megapixels.
