Also, some editors (Hello Capture One, and others) can not process grayscale files.  When I scan B&W negatives I have to use 48-bit RGB instead of 16-bit gray if I want to post process the scanner output.  Perhaps Leica thought about that when deciding the color space.  Just a guess.

[ '80%' NITECORE update ] Q2M delivered. Also NITECORE in-the-field charger. Charged the barely-charged Leica battery in the Leica charger until the latter's 80% LED showed. Then put the 'known' 80% charged battery in the NITECORE. Within seconds the NITECORE was reporting END eg fully charged. That's all I wanted to know. No meters or science required or needed. QED YMMV

[ grey zone ] This particular post does not describe a proper recharge. It is an observation of the funky symptoms exhibited by the NITECORE when fitted with a battery whose charge in the 'grey zone ...approximately 80%-85% (relative to the Leica charger's 100%). I will *NOT* be fitting a Leica battery in an elevated state of charge (80%-85% or perhaps even more) into the NITECORE ever again. Its design clearly does not cope and displays nonsensical readings. The gizmo shows that, at leas

"Colour spaces sRGB" - what do they mean by that if there is no colour array? Enlighten me if I am misunderstanding something, please.

Other spec sheet issues:-

"face recognition" - possibly but how can it be reliable or consistent without colour? One oval of grey in a sea of other grey patches...

"subject tracking" - no... AFAIK that really does need 'colour'

"...60 s to 1⁄2000 s with mechanical shutter..." :: have seen 60  and  also 120 seconds specified. Perhaps it all depends on the funky long exposure 'noise reduction' algorithm kicking in or is the latter other spec sheet issue?

Still no in-the-field charger capability manufacturer-supplied for the Q2M (eg using 12VDC - USB-C - Lightning). Is this really too much to ask here in the latter stages of 2020? May have to get a small DV-to-AC invertor for use in the car. Yes, Leica want to sell me more spare battery blocks at a wholly inordinate profit margin. But I can still ONLY charge one-up at any one time, at 3hrs a pop, without buying a completely separate charger for each separate battery. Grief:-/ Got to get myself back to base just to charge up the battery and possibly wait around for 3hrs when I could be out taking pictures (Covid-19 notwithstanding). Have asked Leica UK to supply or explain why not.

Q2M still 'flagged out of stock'. Will check above issues for myself when Leica UK so allows me to purchase/unbox mine:-)

check out nitecore for an in-the-field charger - you will need a suitable battery pack ( I have been using Anker for other batteries and devices charging duties with no problems)

Earlier I had researched that nitecore charger.

Found what might've been several trolls seemingly seriously declaring an 80% max charge issue... Do you have any information that could de-bunk that issue?

OTOH 80% is better than a dead battery at a photo opportunity.

I then filed an enquiry at Leica UK.

no,  but I can believe it, as after all it's an aftermarket product, and they might not have been able to fully decod or reverse engineered the battery- heck Leica might even had a role on it 

as you say, 80 or 90 percent is better than nothing. It's a compromise, and I can live with it, as I use tthe nitecore on the road and backpacking

I would contact Nitecore too.....

Thank you for the positive view of your own NITECORE.

Small DC-AC inverters can be (?are?) somewhat unreliable - hazardous even. Higher output units are too big and awkward to install in my small sports car.

I already travel about with a small handbag-sized solid-state NOCO battery starting pack (squeezed behind/under my car seat) which includes a USB outlet. The NOCO starts a 8 litre petrol or a 6 litre diesel engine. Enough juice to top up even the likes of an official Leica Q2M battery - gold-plated as they must be (judging by their sale price).

Your peer review is really helpful, my thanks. Looks like a compromise (or few) in the offing.

Now if only Leica R&D/manufacturing could see sense or wake up and smell the roses (as it were) so as to ever-so-slightly improve the technical specifications on offer.... what are the chances eh? It's not rocket science.

I have also a NOCO - GB40, but actually they offer a 400A/4L gas(petrol) version too(BG20. I have it to use on a v6 - 3.6L, so it's more than enough

Leica seems to believe all their gear users are mostly city dwellers, or urban travelers, hence being always in reach of a wall outlet - and they are not alone. I have Olympus and Canon camera and I have to use aftermarket chargers when outlets are a far sight. Aftermarket batteries are a scary business, and I have been lucky one specific brand.

In all they make more money selling an extra battery (R&D is done) than investing in creating an on-the-go solution and selling it, so I would say we are out of luck -0 it's a industry trend, and I believe Sony did offered a camera with onboard charging, but had a huge caveat - while charging,  you could not operate the camera.

Risking some bigotry speech, stay away from most Chinese brands, and buy from well established brands. Yes, lithium batteries have/can have a lot of issues, and so their chargers. Maintenance and diligence handling them it's a must.

Face detection seems to work fine on Q2 Monochrom, as tested on TV :). I assume subject tracking is AF-C, which also seems to work just fine.

Slowest adjustable shutter speed is 120 sec (Technical Specification document is wrong), but auto-metering can use 30 sec max.

Mine is apparently a GB70 2000A/8L petrol/6L diesel engine boost starter jobbie. The item came recommended by some whose provenance I trust. Only has to stir a flat four 2.5L petrol so there should be PLENTY left for a Leica or few:-) 

Agree fully with the rest of your comments. Yes, may be an industry trend but doesn't Leica place itself as an intensely vertical and highly specialised market? So why not buck the trend and fully design their technical specifications to fit in-the-field use?

In addition I believe it is a bit 'off' that Leica effectively force us into the hands of non-compliant manufacturers due to Leica's own profiteering requirements. Yes, I will fund Leica's profit margins by buying official Leica batteries but I must insist that Leica provide me with an official Leica charger whose energy source is operational in-the-field eg 12Vdc. 

The 'difficulty' in design may be the narrow step change from 12Vdc to the Leica battery fully charged voltage 8.4Vdc (probably higher during charging). DC-DC conversion still has to obey physics it's not magic! Likely to be the 'reason' for the apparent 80% max of the after market stuff, whereas the mains powered Leica charger achieves 100%. Using mains there's more potentially (no pun intended) available. May not be anything more 'coded'. YMMV

120seconds uh? I might have to drag my star tracker after all. It's going to be cold and tough going - moonrise at 615pm and set at 330 am - maybe I can get something before 6pm

I can see a trendy skin-tone matching charger-pack - Leica Q2M logo shaded in grey, onboard battery charger - slide cover to reveal location, and a couple usb ports - ins&outs. A simple package of 2in1 allowing to charge your other devices....would be selling like hot-cakes

Thanks for the update - I will be getting the Nitecore soon too. If you don't know already, the battery itself needs at least three charging cycles (fully discharge while operating in camera and then charge to full(ish) with Leica's outlet charger) to effectively charge to 100%, be faster at charging and provide actuation numbers closer to specifications given in the manual

I wonder. I exclusively use the Nitecore charger. Have two batteries and it works great. Is there any evidence or experience that the Leica charger actually brings the batteries to a higher level of charge? Thanks.

      Wetzlar, 10th November 2020. Leica Camera AG presents the Leica Q2 Monochrom – the next-generation model of the Leica Q line of cameras. With a newly developed full-frame monochrome sensor, a fast Leica Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH. prime lens, fast and precise autofocus and OLED viewfinder technology, the new model not only continues the performance features of the Q2, but also defines new quality standards in black and white photography. The monochrome design of the camera with a new leather covering, matt black paint, gray and white engravings and MONOCHROM lettering on the top is elegant and unobtrusive. The red Leica logo was intentionally omitted on this camera. Like the Leica Q2 the Q2 Monochrom comes with a protective sealing against dust and water spray compiling to the IP52 Standard.
      The Leica Q2 Monochrom features a exclusively developed 47.3 megapixel full frame monochrome sensor that captures both highly-detailed still pictures and 4K video at ISO sensitivities up to 100,000 and, together with its Leica Summilux 28 mm f/1.7 ASPH. lens, ensures exceptional imaging performance. The fast initial aperture of f/1.7 guarantees optimum picture quality in even the most difficult lighting situations. This all makes the Leica Q2 Monochrom the perfect companion for fans of black and white photography and those who want to become one. The practical locking element for the choice of manual or automatic focusing and simple switching to macro mode with a close focus distance of 17 cm is located on the lens and highlights the greatest possible creative freedom in composing exceptional black-and-white images.
      Thanks to the extension of the integrated digital zoom function up to 75 mm, users now enjoy even more flexibility for composing their pictures. In addition to the uncropped 28 mm focal length of the camera lens, a crop factor can be chosen to simulate exposures made with focal lengths of 35, 50 or 75 millimetres. The selected crop is displayed as a bright-line frame in the viewfinder and on the rear display panel. The cropped image from the framing selected is saved in JPEG format with correspondingly reduced resolutions of 47.3, 30, 14.7, or 6.6 megapixels. The uncropped image is always saved simultaneously as a DNG file with the full resolution of 47.3 megapixels.
      The Leica Q2 Monochrom also features an OLED viewfinder with a resolution of 3.68 megapixels. The high resolution provides complete control over the motif at all times and also leads to considerably improved image depth and higher contrast. In contrast to LCD technology, in which only whole sectors of the viewing image can be darkened, the brightness of each individual pixel in the viewfinder of the Q2 is adapted. Despite the high resolution, power consumption remains low. The viewfinder is activated as soon as the camera is brought up to the eye and shows the motif reliably and without any perceptible delay at all times.
      The autofocus system of the Leica Q2 Monochrom focuses precisely on the subject in less than 0.15 seconds, and makes it one of the fastest cameras in its class. Ongoing improvements to the processor from the Maestro family have enabled a higher sequential shooting rate with an impressive 10 frames per second at the full resolution of 47.3 MP that ensures that the truly wonderful moments in life will never be missed. The range of creative options has been further expanded by the new video mode with 4K resolution. Brilliant, black- and-white video recordings can be made with 3840 x 2160 pixels and frame rates of 30 or 24 fps or, alternatively, in the familiar full HD format with 120, 60, 30 or 24 frames per second. In combination with the Leica FOTOS App, the camera’s integrated Wi-Fi module makes it possible to quickly and easily share pictures via social media, change numerous camera settings from a smartphone or even or even remotely control the shutter release of the Leica Q2 Monochrom. Thanks to Bluetooth LE (Low Energy), a permanent connection is established between camera and smartphone.
      In its design, the Leica Q2 Monochrom sticks more consequently than almost any other camera to Leica's typical tradition of reduction to the essentials. The ‘Made in Germany’ seal of quality guarantees that only the finest and most resilient materials are employed in its construction. The monochrome design of the new Leica Q2 Monochrom and its classically structured leatherette ensure an optimal interplay of form and functionality. Also new is the camera’s uniquely intuitive handling concept. This is complemented by a unique, intuitive operating concept. The menu structure has been streamlined and adapted to the special features of a monochrome camera. Naturally, all color settings for image and video recording have been omitted and the menu has only been supplemented with settings for tinting black- and-white images (blue, sepia, selenium).
      A comprehensive range of optional accessories is also available for the Leica Q2 Monochrom. These include, for example, Protectors and carrying straps in premium-quality leather in different colours, as well as bags and wrist straps in various designs. The range also includes technical equipment for the Leica Q2 Monochrom such as the Leica SF 40, SF 60 flash units, the SF C1 remote flash control unit, an additional thumb rest and a handgrip with matching leatherette. Perfectly matched to the camera, three new, specially calculated E49 color filters in yellow, green and orange are available.
      The Leica Q2 Monochrom is on sale from today at authorised Leica dealers.
