The Leica Q2 builds upon its predecessor (the Leica Q) by fixing a few of the latter’s issues with user interface and drastically upgrading the camera’s imaging capabilities. The Q2 features a 47-megapixel sensor, snappy autofocus and image stabilization in a stylish package that continues Leica’s legacy of minimalism. The 28mm f/1.7 fixed lens is an absolute wonder, and is more than sharp enough to resolve those 47 megapixels. The new model retains what made the Q great — the manual/automatic mix, the fantastic EVF, the unbeatable lens, the size, the speed, and the portability — and brings it all firmly up to date. While you’ll pay a Leica price, the Q2 is the absolute pinnacle of fixed-lens cameras.
