Leica Q2 with Leica X Overview


Let's compare X with Q2. Both cameras produced Leica. These models are included in the Large Sensor Compact cameras. Leica X (Typ 113) was released in 2014, and Leica Q2 in 2019. Q2 is newer, which is a plus. X 5 years older.
The sensor resolution of Q2 is greater than that of X. The difference of 31 MP is quite a lot. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
At the first camera (X), the minimum ISO value is lower, which gives more opportunities for shooting in daylight. A larger maximum ISO allows you to take good pictures in the dark. At Leica Q2, the maximum ISO is greater by 37500. Q2 has image stabilization(Optical), X doesn’t, it is a big minus. Both cameras feature a 3-inch fixed screen.
Q2 has electronic viewfinder, and the X doesn’t have. Viewfinder Q2 has a higher resolution of 3680k dots, X has a resolution of no electronic viewfinderk dots. Burst mode, also called continuous shooting mode, sports mode or continuous high speed mode, is a shooting mode in still cameras. Leica X has 20.0 fps continuous shooting. Leica X has 20.0 fps continuous shooting.
