The Leica Q2 Reporter continues a long tradition of Leica cameras that are specifically geared towards the challenging working environments of reportage and press photographers offering maximum precision and reliability even in the most adverse conditions. 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.
Instead of the traditional leather trim, the Leica Q2 Reporter is equipped with a body armor made of Aramid Fiber, a synthetic material widely used in the production of high-grade protective clothing. This is perfectly complemented by the cameras matte-green finish, achieved with a particularly scratch and abrasion resistant paint. The result is an exterior that is both hard-wearing and discreet.
