hey I'm Carrie with DP review and we've just gotten our hands on the Leica q2 which is an all new high-end full-frame camera with a fixed 28 millimeter f1 point-seven lens and a whopping 47 mega pixels of resolution now it looks a lot like the original Leica cue from 2015 but looks can be deceiving in typical like a fashion there are no ports to be found but it does come with a B for your battery lifted from the Leica SL burst shooting maxes out at 10 frames per second with focus locked and the Q 2 can now shoot 4k video the controls are simplified the power switch around the shutter release no longer doubles as the drive mode selector which is a welcome change and there are only three buttons down the left side of the display the top command dial has been redesigned and has a customizable function button built right into it that small button near the thumb rest gives you the option for 35 millimeter 50 millimeter and now 75 millimeter digital crops these result in 30 megapixel 15 megapixel and 6 point 6 megapixel JPEGs respectively oh and last but not least like it has confirmed that unlike the original Q at the Q 2 is weather sealed to IP 52 standards so it's not waterproof but it should be fine with a little Seattle drizzle Leica says the lens is unchanged and even with almost double the resolution of the original Q to deal with it gives gorgeous results its optically stabilized and engaging macro mode or manual focusing are both super smooth together with the new sensor is an updated maestro processor giving you a base ISO of 50 and really snappy performance overall despite all the resolution that you have the Leica q2 is a camera that just feels great in the hand it responds instantly produces beautiful RAW files and it's plain fun to use but this is a Leica afterall and if you think the Q 2 is for you be prepared to shell out a significant four thousand nine hundred and ninety five dollars for one and if you're hoping to pick up an original Q at a discount you should hurry the Q to officially replaces the older camera so once it's out of stock that's it now we've got lots more information on the like q2 including sample images impressions from our other staff members and weigh more over a DP review comm so be sure to check all that out until next time I'm carry with DP review
