Full-frame sensor, fixed-focus lens, unlimited creativity

Focused

‘Combine what is technically possible with what makes sense photographically.‘  A concept that has been epitomised by Leica since Oskar Barnack laid the foundations for 35 mm photography more than a hundred years ago, with the original Leica.

This concept has been central to our company’s philosophy - based on the art of engineering on one hand, and on visionary risk-taking on the other. A philosophy that leads to innovation, rewriting photographic history again and again. As it has with the new Leica Q, a camera which continues this groundbreaking Leica tradition with a full-frame sensor and a fixed-focus lens.

Fast

Whether your subject involves depth of field, an available-light situation or a macro photography shot, the  Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH. provides everything you need to express yourself photographically. Its classic  28mm focal length is perfect for street, architectural and landscape photography. Its lens, the fastest in its  class, combined with a specially designed 24 MP CMOS full-frame sensor, provides detailed images of  unsurpassed quality: up to ISO 50,000.

Reactive

The integrated viewfinder of the Leica Q is activated as soon as the camera is brought up to the eye. It faithfully displays the camera’s image at any time, right down to the smallest detail and without any perceptible delay. With its resolution of 3.68 MP, it surpasses all other electronic viewfinders. The autofocus is also outstanding, capturing with ultimate sharpness at maximum speed. The new Maestro II series processor works extremely rapidly and allows a serial image speed of up to 10 frames per second at full resolution. And of course, the images are instantly available as a JPEG in playback mode.

Intuitive

Intuitive, ergonomic, pragmatic. The controls of the Leica Q provide quick access to all relevant options and  opportunities. For example, auto-focus can be set either using buttons or via the touch screen. Prefer to focus  manually?  Then let the innovative Live View aids “Focus-Peaking” and “Live View Zoom” assist you. Easy to use,  the Leica Q helps you implement your ideas perfectly - at the press of a button.

Networked

The built-in Wi-Fi module on the Leica Q makes it easy to share your pictures and videos on social networks. Images can be downloaded to your smartphone, tablet or computer via WLAN and the complimentary Leica Q app. The app also allows the Leica Q to be operated remotely. For example, set the time and aperture on your device and use it as a remote-control release. In this way, blur-free long exposures and recordings are possible from unusual angles – and also as moving images. What’s more, you can record video in Full-HD and web-friendly MP4.

Reliable

The Leica maxim 'focusing on the essentials' also applies to the Leica Q’s exterior design. Made in Germany, the  high quality materials and outstanding craftmanship guarantee maximum durability. The top cover is milled from  a solid aluminium block, while the housing is finished in magnesium and all labels and markings on the  adjustment wheels are laser engraved. The thumb rest on the back of the camera and the diamond pattern of  the exterior finish make the Leica Q beautifully easy to grip.
