Leica releases $6,295 'Reporter' version of its Leica Q2 Monochrome camera
Leica is back again with another special-edition camera, this time giving its Q2 Monochrom camera the ‘Reporter’ treatment its given its original Q2 and M10-P cameras.
As with nearly every limited-edition Leica model, the Q2 Monochrom Reporter remains entirely unchanged from its predecessor on the inside. Notably, the camera still has a full-frame 47MP sensor designed specifically for monochrome photography. Leica says this monochrome sensor can capture up to two additional stops of dynamic range (13EV vs 11EV) compared to its Bayer-laden counterpart. In front of the sensor is the same stabilized 28mm F1.7 ASPH lens found attached to the Q2.
On the outside, however, the Q2 Monochrom Reporter gets the usual Army Green paint job and Kevlar wrap around the front. Leica says the green paint features ‘abrasion-resistant’ properties and says the Kevlar fibers will wear over time to create a unique patina that not only visually alters the wrap, but also adds additional grip as the texture of the fibers becomes more pronounced.
The Leica Q2 Monochrom Reporter is available to purchase through Leica retailers for $6,295, a reasonable $100 premium over the standard Leica Q2 Monochrom.
