Sil­ver Lin­ing For Le­ica’s Q

ProPhoto - - NEWS -

Le­ica has an­nounced a new edi­tion of its Q, the fixed-lens RF-style cam­era which uses a full-35mm sen­sor. The le­ica Q Sil­ver has a top plate and base­plate with a sil­ver an­odised fin­ish while the rear part of the bodyshell is painted black. The black leather trim from the se­rial pro­duc­tion model has been re­tained while all the ex­ter­nal con­trols on the top plate are in sil­ver. le­ica adds, “the de­sign con­cept is com­ple­mented by en­grav­ings of the feet scale and the fo­cal length num­bers on the lens picked out in a shade of red that sets a colour­ful ac­cent in the clas­sic look of the cam­era”.

The fixed lens is a le­ica Sum­milux 28mm f1.7 ASPH fast wide-an­gle prime which has a fo­cus­ing range of 30 cen­time­tres to infinity.

In­ter­nally, the sil­ver le­ica Q is un­changed from the all-black model so it re­tains a 26.3 megapix­els (to­tal) CMOS sen­sor, the ‘mae­stro II’ image pro­ces­sor, 169-points con­trast-de­tec­tion AF, con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing at up to 10 fps, a 3.68 megadots EVF, an in­ter­val­ome­ter and in-cam­era panorama stitch­ing.

The le­ica Q Sil­ver is to be priced at $6300 and is distributed lo­cally by le­ica Cam­era Aus­tralia.
