The Leica Q2 Ghost by Hodinkee pays homage to an iconic diving watch known to connoisseurs as the “Ghost Bezel.” This legendary classic watch, with its very rare bezel, served as an inspiration for the elegant and subtle color scheme of the Leica Q2. The combined passion of the companies with a century-old tradition of developing precision tools to capture and measure time has resulted in a camera that is small and easy to carry but sports a full-frame sensor, lightning-fast autofocus, and an incredible prime lens. This is a one-camera solution capable of gorgeous wrist shots, family portraits, vacation snapshots, and everything in between. The exterior features a grey, fine cowhide leather with a natural texture and matching light grey lacquered lens and case. It deliberately avoids the red Leica logo. The carrying strap is woven from grey yarn with a stable key-ring binding to complete the stylish look of this special edition;;
