The previously rumored Leica Q-P camera is now officially announced. Available in matte black exterior, the new model doesn't have the front-facing Leica red dot logo, but it has the classic script engraving on the top plate. The shutter release button and power switch/drive mode selector have been redesigned to be like the those found on the Leica M10 and CL. The Leica Q-P will be on sale beginning today at Leica Stores, Boutiques and Dealers for $4,995 (some stores already have it in stock today):
