Leica has provided the option to save the cropped images with a correspondingly reduced resolution of 47.3, 30, 14.7, or 6.6-megapixels.

Regarding new shooting features, the Q2 has a slightly lower base ISO of 50 (compared to 100 for the Q) while maintaining the same maximum ISO of 50,000 despite the higher-megapixel chip.

The Leica Q2 also features a newly developed, high-resolution OLED viewfinder to greatly improve image depth and contrast, which is activated as soon as the camera is brought up to the eye and shows the subject reliably and without any delay.

The original Q has proved to be a big seller for Leica, combining numerous traditional values of a classic M camera with modern amenities such as autofocusing, an EVF and programmed exposure control.

The Leica Q2 is available to purchase in select regions now, with a recommended price tag of $4 995 (~R72 453).
