While it looks almost identical to the Leica Q, the Q2 is weather-sealed, has a 47-megapixel full-frame sensor, and shoots 4K video at 30fps. It features the same Leica Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH. lens, although it’s been tweaked to maximize the new high-resolution sensor.

At the exhibit, Leica also showcased the Q2’s improved capabilities with a portrait studio. The company says the new camera goes beyond the conventional use cases of a 28mm focal length with its built-in crop functions for equivalent focal lengths of 35mm, 50mm, and the newly available 75mm.

The Leica Q2 is available in a black paint finish at Leica stores, boutiques, and dealers for US$ 4,995.

Garcia’s Leica Q2 exhibition is on view at the Elga Wimmer Gallery in New York City for a limited engagement of 24 hours on March 7. “Behind the Seen” is a diverse collection of images that strive to highlight the beauty and intrigue of the movie industry and marks Garcia’s debut photographic gallery exhibition. It’s also the first and only exhibition worldwide shot exclusively on the new Leica Q2 camera.
