Today, Leica Camera has announced that it will now offer the popular Leica Q (Typ 116) 24MP full frame compact camera in a silver anodized finish. The camera is identical in features and specifications to the standard black anodized model, but now features silver anodized aluminum top and bottom plates, along with matching silver lens, screw-on lens shade and push-on lens cap. I've always been a fan of the clean and classic silver Leica aesthetic on the M. Now we know it looks awesome on the Q as well.
Priced at $4,495, Leica charging a $250 premium over the standard black finish. This is in line with the pricing for the no-longer available Leica Q Titanium Finish. which turned out to be a limited run. Leica isn't saying one way or the other if the silver is here to stay or just available for a short time.
The Leica Q Silver Anodized model will be available just in time for the Holidays, with deliveries starting in early December of this year. The camera is available for pre-order now at Leica Store Miami, by clicking the link below, calling 305-921-4433 or by emailing email@example.com.
