Firmware Chronology

Firmware Update 2.0
Selectable AF field size Choose between three AF field sizes (small, medium, large) by a long tap on the camera's display while touch AF is activated.
Improved DNG writing speed The DNG and DNG+JPEG writing speed is now two times faster.
Deleting user profiles The user can now delete individual/single user profiles.
Touch AF + Release Touch AF + Release is now implemented and works in all AF modes.
Status screen for photo and video implemented New top-level menu screen for a complete overview of essential settings, with easy access and operation by touch or physical controls. The video mode is now accessed through this new status screen.
Full manual control in video Extended capabilities for capturing videos with manual control of aperture, shutter speed and ISO by using the PASM mode.
Auto ISO behavior The auto-ISO behavior was changed to prioritize correct exposure.
Manual Focus behavior In MF mode, the preselected AF frame will appear and can be used to direct the magnification. The frame can be moved by using the cursor keys. In Multi-Field AF mode, the magnification will start from the center and the last position is saved until the camera is switched off.
Face Detection AF Mode behavior If face detection does not see a face, the AF-Mode will now temporarily switch to Field AF instead of Multi-Field until a face is detected.
Leica FOTOS transfer speed Downloading images from the Leica Q2 to Leica FOTOS app is now up to 50% faster. (The Leica Q2 needs to be paired again with Leica FOTOS after installation of this firmware update)
Variable EVF refresh rate A menu option was added to choose between 60 fps or 120 fps for the refresh rate of the electronic viewfinder. For fast moving subjects, set 120 fps for a more fluid display of movement (lower resolution), or choose 60 fps for full resolution.
AF-L / AE - added to Zoom button The AF and AE lock function allows you to lock your focus or exposure settings separately as you recompose your shot.
Improvement of Tracking AF Precision and overall performance of Tracking AF is improved.
Touch in EVF Touchscreen AF functionality while using the EVF is now available.
Firmware Update 1.1
DNG files recording DNG files recorded in ‘Continuous Super Speed’ mode are now readable in Adobe products.
Burst Shooting Mode + attached flash In 'Burst Shooting Mode' (H/M/L) the attached flash is now triggered more than once (depending on the power of the flash).
Download of images via Leica FOTOS Stabilized image download via Leica FOTOS in combination with ‘Remote-Wake up’ as well as display of aperture values after wake up.
Interval shooting in Drive Mode In ‘JPG´s only’ setting now images can be taken with 1s ‘Interval' continuously without losing frames. Also the performance with 'DNG + JPG' has been improved.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to general SD-card writing time please use an interval time of longer than 2 sec. in order to secure that all images (DNG + JPG) will be saved.
