At the beginning of November, the new one was officially announced Reporter Leica Q2a solution that uses what was done with the M10-P Reporter by modifying a version “standard” of camera model with different design for colors and materials used.

As for the others limited editions Of Leica, also in this case we find an upward adjustment for the price. The difference is due both to the use of different materials, to additional processes but also to the few units produced. This last point is particularly important on the second-hand and collector’s market.

Features of the Leica Q2 Reporter

New mirrorless camera from the German manufacturer has a machine body that instead of being covered in leather is equipped with a so-called“armor” In Kevlar. To give a camouflage/military look, the upper, lower and side areas have a matte green finish which is particularly scratch and abrasion resistant.

Reporter Leica Q2 therefore has a design which combines both resistance and discreet appearance. One of the peculiarities of the Kevlar coating is that its color will change with theexposure to UV rays. It will thus go from an almost black state to a color close to that of the paint (green).

Exterior texture has a pattern that will lift over time, further increasing texture handle from the hand. The coating also helps protect the camera against mechanical, chemical and thermal hazards. As you can see the front area does not have the red Leica logo, again for “goes more unnoticed”.


New Reporter Leica Q2 uses the same technical basis as the standard model. We then find a sensor of 47.3 megapixels in full-frame format with integrated optics Summilux 28mm f/1.7. There’s also a high-resolution 3.68 MPixel EVF, the ability to record 4K video, and dust and splash water resistance with IP52 certification.
