Leica Updates Its Next-Gen B&W Lineup With The Q2 Monochrom Camera

Leica’s M Monochrom Typ 246 is revered as one of the industry’s finest black & white cameras. A large part of this can be attributed to the brand’s long-running reputation within the history of reportage, tapping into its roots to create a modernized platform that pays homage to the variants of old. Now, the optically-affluent outfit has decided to gift its Q2 with the monochromatic treatment.

The next-generation Q2 will adopt a newly-conceived 47-megapixel, full-frame monochrome sensor, integrated zoom function, and locking element, giving users the opportunity to dip their toes into the world of manual focus. If they find that it’s a bit too difficult, they can always switch back to the camera’s responsive autofocus, thanks to an intuitive peripheral on the camera’s lens. Like the rest of Leica’s lineup, each example will boast a durable magnesium alloy body, weather-sealed traits, and luxurious black leather, giving it an air of premium taste. To keep the Q2 Monochrom as unassuming as possible, the brand’s noticeable “red dot” logo has been omitted, making the fast f/1.7 aperture model a joy to utilize for street photography. Head to Leica’s website, where the camera is listed for $5,995, to pick up one of your own.
