Merging two of their most unique series of cameras, the Leica Q2 Monochrom is a full-frame compact camera fitted with a 47.3MP monochrome sensor, which is used for the sole purpose of recording vivid and rich black and white imagery only.

Compared to a standard CMOS sensor, this specialized monochrome sensor omits with the color filter array to enable the recording of just luminance values, in order to achieve greater visual depth and clarity, along with improved sensitivity to ISO 100,000 and reduced noise levels to suit working in difficult lighting. The sensor's design also sees the removal of the optical low-pass filter and inclusion of an updated microlens array, which helps to produce sharper, higher resolution imagery.

Beyond its Monochrom distinction, this version of the Q2 follows a familiar path of quick and robust performance and intuitive handling to that of the Leica Q2. The sensor uses the Maestro II image processor to offer fast shooting operation up to 10 fps, support for both DCI and UHD 4K video recording (in black and white) and provides great autofocus performance. This camera also features the same beloved Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH wide-angle prime lens, which has been matched to the sensor design for exceptional resolution and clarity.
