  1. I've been wrestling big time with selling my Q2, to fund an SL2-S (or SL2-S Reporter if the rumours are true). Note I have an SL601 and a few non Leica lenses already. I've had it listed for sale then removed it, had it all boxed up and put away, only to watch YouTube videos and read comments on here, and also viewing the amazing images on the Images thread, and then I get it out again and use it. Maybe I'm just not ready to let go???? What are everyone else's experiences?
  2. Greetings, It's wonderful to introduce myself to you as a new Leica User. Greg
  3. Hi All, I am planning to purchase a Q2 at Leica Store New Delhi, India. Has anyone in this forum purchased Q2 from there? If yes, can you provide some information on the below points. 1. What courier they use for shipping? 2. Do they provide discount, if negotiated? 3. What is the tenure of India and International warranty on Leica Q2 or any other products?
  4. Hey, if you are wondering what you can do with the q2 : just enjoy this talent and it’s art! thanxs for the inspiration Peter Lund
  5. So wondering how the auto mode decides to come into play or just better to leave on all the time unless using a tripod. Why not leave on all the time? Any thoughts would be appreciated cheers

    Spiral love

    I love me some spirals. Capture from a few weeks back of a wonderful bride. striding up a staircase at Perkins Chapel, Dallas, Texas. Camera details: Leica Q2, f2 1/250 ISO 3200
  7. I shoot with a Leica q2. When I open the DNG files in either Capture One or Lightroom (both latest versions) I get a vertical line left of the image. This line doesn’t not show when I look at the images before importing them. I work on a MBP 2021 M1 Max i disabled the Hardware acceleration (based on another tip) but it didn’t solve the issue. I know it’s not the camera. Any suggestions or troubleshooting ? thank you. see sample below. (Zoom in it will be very evident) THANK YOU!
  8. Back in September, I was able to sail aboard the USS CONSTITUTION, the world's oldest commissioned naval warship afloat. The HMS VICTORY, Lord Nelson's flagship at Trafalgar, has actually been commissioned longer, but sadly she is in dry dock and no longer afloat. This series comprises my selects while using the Q2 as a point-and-shoot for that once-in-a-lifetime experience...
  9. Hallo und guten Abend! kann mir jemand sagen, wie ich die Geodaten in meine EXIF bekomme? Wird ja in dem Update der Fotoapp als neue Funktion angezeigt - aber egal was ich mache - ich bekomme keine GPS-Daten in die EXIF! Habe die alte App gelöscht (IOS) und die neue heruntergeladen. Wenn ich die App und die Kamera (Q2) einschalte, dann wird WiFi-Verbindung zur Fernbedienung der Kamera hergestellt - was ich ja eigentlich gar nicht möchte. Schalte ich jetzt mit der Kamera die WiFi-Verbindung aus, dann kommen keine GSP-Daten - ich hab schon alles versucht! Was mache ich falsch?? Danke für Eure Hilfe! Viele Grüße Sonja
  10. I've noticed my Q2 often (25%-35% of the time) will capture TWO identical images in rapid succession with a SINGLE squeeze of the shutter release. Naturally, I've ensured that the exposure mode is in SINGLE and not in multiple, continuous, or bracketing modes. This is becoming annoying (and wasteful of storage space), not to mention sometimes confusing (especially on those occasions when I AM bracketing exposures, and instead of 3 or 5 nicely bracketed exposures, I end up with 4 or 6 bracketed images, two of which are identical in exposure). Again, I've repeatedly confirmed that I'm in single-shot mode, and most of the time, the camera correctly takes a single exposure, as commanded. However, a significant minority of the time (25%-35%), TWO identical images are produced with a SINGLE click of the shutter release. Is anyone else experiencing this, and if so, are there any solutions short of returning the camera for repairs/replacement? P.S. I also own and have exposed thousands of images with the Q, and never experienced this issue.
  11. Hi, I want to to know how good are the 50mm crop of the Q2 because I like that kind of prospective... A CL with the TL 35 Summilux 1.4 lens (so 50mm equivalent as is an APSC) is equal or better? Thanks to all who can help me
  12. Hello, ladies and gents - here is a question for those who shoot with the Q2. I need to get a flash for my Q2, preferably a Metz unit as they are priced more favorably than the Leica flash units. Is there a Metz equivalent of Leica's SF60 or SF40 flash? The Metz mecablitz 52 AF-1 looks like it could be a good choice. The 52 AF-1 is supposed to be compatible with Panasonic/Leica Four Thirds TTL, according to the description on a well known camera retailer's website. It seems odd that this flash would be compatible with Leica 4/3rds cameras but there is no mention of it being compatible with Leica's full frame cameras such as the Q2, M240 or M10. Would that be due to the difference in sensor size between 4/3rds and full frame? I have used off camera flash (a Nikon unit) a fair amount in the past with my M-P 240 by using a wireless flash trigger set. This is ungainly though when you are holding the flash in one hand and the camera in the other and trying to shoot. I need fill flash for high contrast lighting situations so on camera flash would greatly streamline using flash with my Q2. So my question boils down to this: Is the Metz mecablitz 52 AF-1 compatible with the Q2? Or is there another flash unit that could be used on camera with the Q2?
  13. Moin! Bei den meisten Bildern sieht man's natürlich, dennoch die Frage ob die Aktivierung/Nutzung der Makrofunktion der Q2 irgendwo in den EXIF Daten ausgewiesen wird. Wäre z.B. nützlich bei der Durchsuchung grösserer Bildbestände per Software nach derartigen Fotos. Danke, schönes WE und cheers, thomas
  14. Q2 (firmware 2.0) Question for the assembled masses. Does your Right Wheel Button work in manual focus? I can only get the focus zoom option to come up on the right wheel button when I am in manual mode. There is no press and hold menu option available and no way to assign ISO to that button. In auto-focus, it works fine. Anyone else experiencing this?
  15. Hey Guys! I’m new to this forum since I got my Q2 today :) I imported DNGs to Capture One 20 and the colors are completely off - way way over saturated and shifting towards magenta right after import with no adjustments applied. In Lightroom the colors I see represent what I see in camera. What’s the reason for that? I read that capture one 20 deals with native DNGs just fine. Is there a fix for it? A setting I’m not seeing etc? thanks :)
  16. Does anyone own or has anyone seen a Leica Q2 Thumb support? Thanks in advance for a quick ping if you have — cheers!
  17. While we suffer an interminable wait for the (alleged soon to be) M10 Monochrom, I have to ask: Why not a Q2 Monochrom?? Think of the possibilities that a full frame, 47 MP, ISO 50,000 Monochrom with a 28mm f/1.7 lens and a silent leaf shutter would have to offer! To the gents in Wetzlar, I have to ask: Are you listening? To everyone else, I ask: What are your thoughts on a Q2 Monochrom?
  18. Couple disappointments having just purchased my Q2...(1) keen to register it and officially join the community, but the Leica members area on the website seems to be "under construction." (2) Also had disappointing experience trying to connect camera to iphone / ipad via Leica Fotos. The App tells me it has found the camera, tells me to connect to wifi (I press connect)...only to be told "connection failed." Have read on this forum...Fotos 1.3.1 is not up-to date for OS13?? Will take the advice of others and use a SD card reader to transfer! (But it would be nice if the App worked).
  19. For those who use the Q2 to create black and white images, what have you found is the way to get the best results in terms of image quality? Do you shoot in color then convert to B&W in post processing? If so, which software program do you prefer? I know we already have a Q2 image thread, but if we could see some examples of B&W images made with the Q2 in this thread by way of example, that would be great. My Q2 is on the way and I want to learn about how to maximize it for black and white imagery, particularly for making exhibit quality B&W prints. I'm sure many others will be interest in this, too.
  20. I have been thinking of acquiring a Q2 for a while and am about 90% ready to make that commitment. I see the Q2 as an addition to my Leica system, which at present includes an M4-P, M-P 240 and a handful of lenses. I am pretty well content with my M-P 240 but it does have a couple of shortcomings - shutter noise and not so great ISO range. For print making, I have found that I can get away with somewhere between ISO 800-1600 before noise becomes a problem, depending on a number of variables other than just ISO. The Q2 seems to resolve those two issues, with weather sealing, autofocus, f/1.7 and a big honking sensor thrown in to sweeten the deal. As far as the focal length that some complain about being "stuck with" on the Q2, that is not really a concern to me. Before I made the jump to digital when I got my M240 back in 2013, I had shot with my film MP and 28 Summicron ASPH extensively. The 28 is an excellent all-around focal length IMHO. It is sort of like the 35mm focal length, but requires a bit more of the photographer in terms of thinking, discipline and not being afraid to get close to your subjects; it is also an excellent focal length for travel, documentary and landscape work IMHO. I learned to deal with these issues (thinking, discipline, getting closer to my subjects) when shooting with my MP and 28 'cron, so I won't feel "stuck" or short changed by having only the 28mm focal length lens on the Q2. In thinking about the Q2, this morning I had the thought that absence of the coupled rangefinder mechanism notwithstanding, the Q2 is somewhat of an autofocus counterpart of the M10 in the Leica lineup as a whole. There is no equal to the flagship M10-P in the Leica product lineup (though some of the other digital M cameras come close), but the Q2 seems to have earned its place next to the M-10-P. In looking at my Leica kit as a whole, I can see the Q2 as being an able backup camera to my M-P 240 and an alternative to it as my daily carry camera. I think the Q2 will fulfill those roles with aplomb. I am wondering how the Q2 has fit in to the scheme of things for others who shoot with it and digital M cameras, and if the Q2 has served its purpose well in your photographic endeavors. Also: Is it fairly accurate to think of the Q2 as somewhat of an autofocus counterpart of the M-P 240 or M10-P? Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts and impressions. 😎
  21. I just received a Q2. Truth in advertising, this is not only my first Leica, but also my first full size with image stabilization. When the camera is not powered on it sounds like a gimbal is loose and moving around. When the camera is powered up, this goes away. Is this normal? Thanks!
  22. Hi, the Q2 is my first Leica (sorry 😉 ). Besides the weird Implementation of the much discussed BackButtonFocus I've noticed another strange one, but not sure if it's just me. In all my other cams you simply have a more/less plain, isolated setting: Minimum Shutter-speed. It just takes care the shutter-speed, in whatever (semi-)auto setting you force the camera in, does not go below a defined value, for obvious reasons, most important one: the user does not want it to go below that value, knowing what she/he is doing or anticipating on situations he/she expects. However, with the Q2 you CAN set the min value in the sub-menu AUTO ISO settings (which already is a bit strange) but what happens is that when you set the MIN SHUTTERSPEED, it ONLY works when ISO is set to AUTO. As soon as you decide to kick the ISO setting from AUTO to a specific value(simply because you want to for that shot/series and since I set the thumbweel to that function, its very easy to do so), you loose the min. shutter setting. Is that normal practice at LEICA? The other AUTO-ISO setting: MAX ISO is on the other hand maintained whatever you do (shutter/aperture/exp. correction etc.), so that one works fine i.m.o. Anyway, just curious about opinions and maybe i'm just wrong, for now a bit irritating I cannot set with full confidence a minimum shutter-speed and truly hope it's firmware-fixable. Thanks in advance
  23. Hi All I recently upgraded to the Q2 from the Q. Love it. I've been shooting Leica about three years, I also have M10 and various lenses so I'm quite used to Leica. However, I've just come across a problem with my Q2 and would appreciate advice. Here's the situation: On the Q2 I wanted to shoot longer than 1 second exposure, so I turned the exposure wheel to 1+, then tried to increase exposure to, say 20 seconds by turning the thumbwheel, as I used to on the original Q. I am aware of the limitations re long exposures and high ISO so I set the ISO manually to 100. The camera won't go beyond 1s exposure, however much I turn the wheel. Turning the wheel the other way it only offers me 0.6 seconds. To check it, I then set the exposure to auto (A), and went into a dark room. Again, the camera will not set the exposure to above 1s. It may be a fault with my camera, or I may be doing something wrong. Any thoughts? JC
  24. Hallo zusammen, Hat jemand schon Erfahrung mit dem Ewoop-Thumbs up für die Q2? https://www.amazon.de/EWOOP-Daumengriff-bessere-Balance-Griffigkeit/dp/B07QSX9W9T/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?__mk_de_DE=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&crid=1NMF4WLFKB4ZZ&keywords=ewoop+leica+q2&qid=1560247652&s=gateway&sprefix=ewoop%2Caps%2C152&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1 Der Ewoop für die Q1 hat mit besser gefallen als der von Match Technical, da er billiger war und nicht so schnell die schwarze Farbe verloren hat. Ich habe hier im Forum ja schon mal ausführlich über das Problem berichtet. Schon mal Danke im Voraus für die Rückmeldungen.
  25. The first time I charged my Q2's battery it went to the green "charge" light. Yesterday the battery indicator was red. so I charged it overnight. this morning both the green charge and the orange 80% are lite. does this mean it's not fully charging? I pulled it out and re-inserted it. the charge was blinking but then stopped after 5 minutes. the orange 80% is still lite.? to me this means it's stuck between 80-100%? ? Anyone else experience this?
