Inspired by the demands of press photographers, Leica has created the Leica Q2 Reporter.

Continuing a long tradition of Leica cameras that are specifically geared towards the challenging working environments of reportage and press photographers, the new Q2 variant offers maximum precision and reliability whether you’re working for Reuters or just making a statement.

Instead of the traditional leather trim, the Leica Q2 Reporter is equipped with a ‘body armour’ made of Kevlar, a synthetic material widely used in the production of high-grade protective clothing. This is perfectly complemented by the camera’s matte-green finish, achieved with a particularly scratch and abrasion-resistant paint. The result is an exterior that is both hard-wearing and discreet.

The Kevlar trim, which is characterised by a distinctive weave pattern, effectively protects the camera against mechanical, chemical, and thermal hazards. Although the fabric is initially near black, exposure to natural UV rays will gradually change its tone, until it closely matches the camera’s paint finish.

In addition, the Kevlar fibres become slightly more raised over time, which further improves the photographer’s grip on the camera.

The camera’s overall design shows that a strong emphasis has been placed on an unobtrusive appearance: the red Leica logo on the front has been omitted; the engravings and operating elements are discreetly inlaid, so that neither their purpose – nor the camera’s true value – are immediately apparent.
