The Q2 Monochrom is no exception, and, with its grey and white markings, it is indeed handsome.

Never knowingly without a strong opinion, especially on the origin of a camera, Ken tells us that the Q2 is “both immortal as well as practical and inexpensive, which is why it’s so wildly popular.” What he means by “inexpensive” is in comparison with other full-frame Leicas such as the M or the SL, both of which cost more and require a very costly lens to compete with the Q or Q2.
