Following in the footsteps of Sony’s RX1, Leica is about to release its own fixed-lens full frame camera.

Leica fans have been expecting the camera ever since it was registered by a Taiwanese agency back in March, and the first image and full specs have finally leaked. Those wanting official information will have to wait another week.

Boasting the red-dot logo, the Leica Q (Type 116) is expected to not only be better than the Sony, but also be considerably more expensive.

Below are the leaked specs:

  • Summilux 1: 1.7 / 28mm ASPH lens
  • 24MP CMOS full-size sensor
  • Made in Germany
  • Full HD Video
  • Built-in WiFi
  • Remote control possible from smartphones and tablets
  • Top cover constructed of machined aluminum
  • Magnesium body
  • Touch panel
  • Focus peaking
  • Live View zoom
  • 3.68 million dots EVF
  • New Maestro II image processing engine
  • Up to 10fps in continuous shooting
  • Top ISO of 50,000

The camera should be announced in an upcoming even in Munich on June 11th and is estimated to cost 4,000€ (~4,500 USD).
