Earlier this month, rumors surfaced that German company Leica will be releasing a “James Bond 007” limited edition Q2 to celebrate the launch of the British super-spy franchise’s latest installment, No Time to Die, and now the first images of the camera have leaked online.
Confirming previous suggestions, the new edition comes wrapped in a British forest-green pebbled leather, with the rest of its body and lens blacked out in typical Lecia fashion. Aside from the usual details like the brand’s red circle logo just off to the side of the lens and the white branding inscription next to the viewfinder, you’ll find nods to the MI6 agent all over the camera, such as the gun barrel design on the lens cap, the “007” logo on the top side, and a limited edition numbering on the bottom of the display at the rear, which suggests a total number of just 250 examples. The leaks also reveal that a special Globe-Trotter case will come with the James Bond-themed Q2, also dressed in the same forest-green leather complemented by black accents.
As to its performance, there’s no information yet from Leica regarding its specs, but expect it to be identical as the standard Q2, which means a 47.3-megapixel full-frame sensor, a 28mm f/1.7 Summilux stabilized lens, a 3.68-megapixel OLED electric viewfinder, and a three-inch touchscreen LCD. There’s also no release date or pricing information yet for the limited edition, so stay tuned for more updates to come.
For more things Leica, the brand has released a V-Lux 5 “Explorer” kit.
