Product Information

Showcased at the recent Celebration of Photography in Wetzlar, the Leica Q2 Reporter continues the long-standing tradition of integral design specifically crafted to meet the challenges of reportage and press photography. Along with its robust exterior, the camera is distinguished by a deliberate discreet appearance -- enabling the photographer to work without drawing undue attention. Both the red Leica dot on the front and the engraving on the top plate are consciously omitted for this purpose. Dealers can order the Leica Q2 Reporter Edition beginning today.

The design variant of the Leica Q2 is enveloped in a ‘body armour’ made of Kevlar® – a synthetic material known for its exceptional resilience. Over time, exposure to natural UV rays will change the fabric’s color, until it matches the dark green, highly scratch-resistant finish of the camera body. In addition to these traits, the Leica Q2 Reporter offers the same level of protection against dust and water infiltration as the serial model

  • Unobtrusive Design — Enriched with matching details that fit the concept of the M10-P Reporter.
  • Special Armouring — Made of Kevlar, a synthetic fiber that gives with its rhombuses texture a good grip.
  • Discrete — No Leica logo on the front and no engraving on the top.
  • Robust — Matte green finish, very scratch, and fingerprint resistant.

KEVLAR ®

A synthetic material used in high-grade protective clothing. Kevlar® fibers are so tightly spun that they are almost impossible to separate. In addition to excellent grip, it is also resistant to chemical and thermal hazards. As a result, the Q2 Reporter’s Kevlar® trim – woven in a distinctive pattern – offers outstanding protection even in the harshest conditions.
