Leica will release a limited edition Raspberry Leather model for the Leica Q2 to celebrate its Daimaru Tokyo Store’s 10th Anniversary.

It’s reminiscent of Tokyo Station’s Red Bricks

Leica Japan claims that the “raspberry” color of the genuine leather is reminiscent of red bricks at the Tokyo station near the Leica Daimaru Tokyo shop. Thanks to the use of colored leather and black metal, the camera has a “premium but elegant appearance”.

You can also purchase a raspberry-colored leather strap separately. This limited-edition leather color is not available through the Leica a la carte leather service. Only 10 Q2 cameras will feature the special red color, which coincides the 10th anniversary Leica Daimaru.

The camera will retail for 770,000 yen, which is approximately $6,680. The raspberry leather strap will retail for 12,100 yen (about $105). According to the indications, the strap is not limited to a particular number. Both will be available March 10th and should sell out well in advance.

Functionally identical to the Standard Leica Q2

Leica Q2 was first announced in March 2019. It features a 47.3-megapixel full frame sensor and a fixed Leica Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH Lens. The camera features optical shake compensation, 13-stops dynamic range, 14 bit color depth, and one SD card slot. While the basic model was originally priced at $4,995, it can now be purchased new for $5.695. The Raspberry Leather edition, priced at $6,680, is a significant upgrade to the base model.

The Q2’s Raspberry Leather version is not the only one. The company has also released a Daniel Craig-and Greg Williams edition Q2 and 007 editions and a Kevlar wrapped Reporter edition over the past year.
