Leica Q-P in Stealth Matte Black Released!

 

Leica has released the Q-P, a new model variant of the ever popular Q Typ 116. Taking the design cues from other “P” models of the past, the Leica Q-P features a “Stealth” matte black finish, no red Leica dot logo on the front, classic white engraved Leicascript on top, and red lens markings instead of the standard orange.

 

Besides the cosmetic changes, the shutter release button and on/off switch have been redesigned more in the line with the M and CL, resulting in more tactile feedback for improved feel and handling. Rounding out the package, the thin, stock black strap gets swapped out for wider, adjustable-length, brown leeather one, and Leica has included an extra battery in as well.

 

The Leica Q-P is shipping immediately with a price of $4,995.

Leica Prices Increasing on May 1st!

 

On May 1, 2018 Leica is increasing prices on a wide range of products by an average of about 5%. Affected products include most M bodies (film and digital), nearly all M lenses, the black Q, TL2, S (Typ 007), many S lenses and a few other items (66 in total). To quote Leica “this revision is necessary due to the current exchange rates and the increase in raw materials and production costs.” This does make sense, as every year about this time we tend to see some increases, designed to reflect the ever-rising costs involved with manufacturing hand-built products from exotic, expensive materials.
 
There are no increases within the SL-system, and recently announced products such as the Thambar-M 90mm, Noctilux-M 75mm, and CL are not affected. If you were thinking about the M10, best to grab one before months’ end as the price is going up $400. The black Q sees an increase of $245 (making it the same price as the silver Q) and TL2 bodies go up $245 as well. If you have any questions feel free to call or stop by the store and we will be more than happy to help.
