Other developments include a high-resolution OLED viewfinder, an AF that can focus in less than 0.15 seconds and 10fps continuous shooting at the full 47.3-megapixel resolution.
Known for its attention to design, the Q2 embodies the Leica ethos of ‘reduction to the essentials’ and the ‘Made in Germany’ seal of quality, guaranteeing that its construction has been made with the finest and most resilient materials.
