  • The compact Leica X2 makes each moment something truly special - and captures them in brilliant picture quality.

    This is guaranteed by its new image sensor and the truly classical focal length of its high-performance Leica lens. In terms of 35 mm photography, the lens of the Leica X2 has a focal length of 35 mm - the classic lens for photojournalism. For snapshots or painstakingly arranged compositions, its intuitive handling makes it easier than ever before to take true-to-life Leica pictures.

    Outstanding image quality

    The true greatness of the Leica X2 lies in its outstanding image quality. For its compact size, the camera features an impressively large, professional APS-C CMOS image sensor with a high resolution of more than 16 megapixels. In combination with its high-performance Leica Elmarit 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH. lens, this guarantees exposures with extremely low image noise, a high dynamic range and accurate colour differentiation. The outcome: images of superior brilliance - down to even the tiniest details.

    Made in Germany

    Reminiscent of the traditional M-Design, the X2 is a camera to fall in love with - not only due to its captivating looks, but also its wonderful feel in your hands. It is so inviting to hold that you may never want to put it down!. The X2 is constructed, by hand, in the Leica factory from high-quality materials and passes through the most stringent quality assurance and precision testing at every stage of the production process. This makes the Leica X2 the one and only digital compact camera made in Germany.

    Instantaneous reaction - the autofocus

    The X2's new autofocus enables fast, extremely precise and virtually silent focusing. Ideal for situations where spontaneous reactions are essential.It adapts flexibly to the situation, for example with the choice of the number of AF focusing segments and face recognition. This allows photographers to completely concentrate on their subjects. The Leica X2 is much more than just a camera. It is an expression of the sheer joy of photography.
