LEICA Q-P

Leica Logo

An artful statement of understatement

LEICA Q-PThe Leica Q-P is tailored to fulfill the most stringent aesthetic and technical expectations. It favors a classic Leica script engraving on the top plate over the usual front-facing Leica red dot logo for a more discreet look, stealthy matte-black paint finish that looks and feels like nothing else, and a redesigned shutter release button for a more positive tactile feedback. The new Leica Q-P also comes complete with a new carrying strap in the finest brown leather, and an additional battery.

It carries the same superior image quality and technical excellence of the standard Leica Q in silver and black finishes, but further refines this amazing formula.

The Leica Q has well-established itself as a full-frame compact camera for all occasions and types of photography. The new Leica Q-P sees a redesign of the acclaimed Q, forgoing the iconic red dot and applying a matte black, high-resistance paint to make a true statement of understatement.
