Today, Leica and noted horology resource Hodinkee have announced a new special edition camera, the Leica Q2 “Ghost” by Hodinkee. Following up on the success of the smart-looking M10-P “Ghost Edition” collaboration back in 2019, the two brands are teaming up once again, this time using the ever-popular Q2 digital camera as their platform of choice.
Inspired by a vintage watch's sought-after “ghosted” look from many years of use, the camera is finished in a unique light gray matte paint with the attached lens clad in silver with white and black engravings. Matching the lens, silver controls with white markings grace the top of the camera and body-colored gray buttons take the place of the standard black ones on the back, next to the LCD. The textured gray cowhide leather covering and matching woven gray yarn strap round out the subtle gray-on-gray “ghost” aesthetic. The camera looks extremely subtle, especially with the standard Leica red dot removed, yet is eye-catching at the same time.
Of course, imaging performance will be excellent, as the Ghost edition shares the same stellar 28mm f/1.7 Summilux lens mated to a 47 megapixel sensor as a standard Leica Q2. And to keep pace with the Q2's inherent weather resistance, a special coating to protect the natural leather cladding from the elements. The Leica Q2 “Ghost” is limited to 2000 pieces worldwide.

Leica Camera AG in partnership with Hodinkee, one of the leading platforms for watches and cutting-edge horology, announces a new special edition: Leica Q2 “Ghost” by Hodinkee.
This release expands on the successful collaboration between the two brands which began in 2019, with the introduction of the special edition Leica M10-P “Ghost”.
The timeless design of the Leica Q2 “Ghost” by Hodinkee pays tribute to an iconic diving watch known among connoisseurs as “Ghost Bezel”. Leica designers together with Hodinkee have partnered to create an elegant, discreet coloring for this Q2 special edition model, paying homage to the legendary classic watch with its rare grey bezel and providing creators with an alternative color scheme of the sought-after camera during this holiday season.
The stylish grey leather covering made of fine cowhide with a natural texture is provided with a special coating to reliably protect the Leica Q2 “Ghost” by Hodinkee against environmental influences. The top cover and lens are painted in an unobtrusive light grey while the red Leica logo has been = deliberately omitted. Additionally, the special edition includes a woven grey yarn carrying strap with a stable key ring binding.
The Leica Q2 “Ghost” by Hodinkee has identical technical specifications to the Q2 serial model.
