Dust and splash-resistant build

The Q2 is build to withstand moderate use in tough conditions, offering the same IP52 rating as the SL. Technically this should guarantee "limited protection against dust ingress [and] falling drops of water, if the case is disposed up to 15 degrees from vertical". While this might not sound particularly impressive, consider that most photographic equipment is not rated by its manufacturers at all, and as such, even a modest IP rating should inspire a degree of confidence in wet or dusty conditions.

Despite its new weatherproofing, the Q2 maintains the same shape and size as the original Q, thanks (according to Leica) to a redesign of some internal components.
