Leica has done it again with the launch of another exclusive edition model of the Q2.
This one has been created in collaboration with award-winning actor Daniel Craig and Greg Williams, one of Britain’s most renowned photographers.
Williams has photographed Daniel Craig’s Bond since he first stepped into the role, creating behind-the-scenes books and special shoots as well as many of the Daniel Craig film posters.
Both Craig and Williams have a common passion in photography and are both avid fans of the Leica brand, making this an obvious collaboration for the pair.
“We bonded over our shared love of cameras on ‘Casino Royale’. Daniel takes beautiful photos and has a great eye. The Leica Q2 is an extension of me – you never see me without one around my neck. So to work with Daniel and the team at Leica on this limited edition has been a very special.” Williams says.
The Q2 is, according to Daniel Craig, the perfect camera and needs no improvement. Both Williams and Craig says the chance to work with each other and the amazing people at Leica to create this unique camera, has been a privilege and an honour.
While the Leica Q2 Daniel Craig x Greg Williams corresponds technically to the Leica Q2, it has an exclusive and elegant design. The visible elements of the camera are defined by black and gold. All the engravings on the camera and lens are inlaid with gold paint. It also includes a first: the name and sequential serial number have been engraved with a laser, under the glass cover of the camera display. Another very particular feature concerns the traditional Leica logo: on the Leica Q2 Daniel Craig x Greg Williams, the red dot with Leica
The carrier strap is made of top-quality, vegetable-dyed Nappa leather that is embossed with the Leica logo, and has eyelets which are gilded. The same leather, embossed with an elegant diamond pattern, is also used for the camera covering. Each camera, with accessories, comes in a specially designed, hinged-lid presentation box with gold lettering and a black silk lining. The Leica Q2 Daniel Craig x Greg Williams is limited to 750 units, and is immediately available at specialist stores at $9,990.
A standard Leica Q2 will set you back $7990
