Leica Camera is excited to bring the next milestone and icon in the company's long history of premium cameras – the new Leica SL2. Building on the platform that was established with the Leica SL when the trailblazing system was introduced in 2015, the Leica SL2 elevates the full-frame mirrorless segment to new heights with improved performance, refined ergonomics, and streamlined controls
- 47-megapixel full-frame sensor brings new levels of image quality
- Built-in Body Image Stabilization for steadier shots with all lenses
- 4K recording with Cine Mode for a pro-level video output
- Streamlined menu interface and button layout for easier/faster use
- Improved ergonomics & weather-sealed rugged build made in Germany
New Sensor with Body Image Stabilization
The newly developed 47-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor – with an ISO range of 50 - 50,000 – gives photographers all the resolution they need while still maintaining high speeds and versatile low-light shooting. The integrated BIS system offers up to 5.5 stops of stabilization with any lens, including adapted Leica lenses never before stabilized, allowing stills and video to be steadier and helping guarantee sharp images even in low light with slower shutter speeds.
Streamlined Menu Interface and Button Layout
Furthering Leica's mantra of "Das Wesentliche" (The Essentials), the Leica SL2 has a simplified interface and control scheme. The menu functions for Photo and Video are split up with a graphical interface to clearly identify which one you are in and help you navigate. The three-button control layout of the M10, CL & Q2 has now migrated to the SL2 for easier controls that are more approachable while still customizable enough for even seasoned pros.
Improved Ergonomics and Weather Sealing
Part of what makes the Leica SL-System so special is its versatility. The new IP54-rated weather sealing of the SL2 ensures this versatile camera can perform in any extreme environment. Additionally, the ergonomics and contours of the camera have been improved to ensure it can be used for long periods of time without fatigue. The new grip material gives a more confident and secure grip that is comfortable to hold and use.
New Electronic Viewfinder
When the Leica SL debuted in 2015, it set the standard for EVF performance for years to come. The new OLED EVF in the Leica SL2 brings even better color fidelity and higher contrast with more resolution and sharpness. This new EVF has 5.76 million dots of resolution for the highest quality viewing and composing experience through a Leica lens.
Evolved Design for an Iconic Leica Identity
For the SL2, the designers at Leica's design office in Munich looked to the brand's heritage for inspiration. Hearkening back to the Leicaflex SL and Leica R3/R4, the SL-System's forebears, they established a more iconic Leica identity for the SL2. Now built from a main chassis of magnesium and a solid aluminum top, the Leica SL2 marches towards the future while respecting the past and its legacy.
Leica Object Detection Autofocus System
The advanced contrast-detect autofocus system of the Leica SL2 is capable of face detection and body detection, to track moving subjects and maintain pinpoint accuracy. Intelligent-AF (iAF) can be used to focus on still subjects and begin tracking them as soon as they move. The focusing settings can also be fine-tuned by the user to adjust the behavior and tolerances for tracking.
Long Exposures in Less Time
Users now have the option of turning off Long Exposure Noise Reduction in the menu of the Leica SL2, allowing photographers who capture long exposures to work quicker and more conveniently. Capture detail in even the darkest scenes with a maximum shutter time of 30 minutes.
With 8 SL-Lenses already released, 3 more announced in the road map for 2020, adapters for all Leica lenses and the L-Mount Alliance with Panasonic and Sigma, the Leica SL2 has an expansive and continuously growing selection of optics, both new and classic.
Connectivity – Leica FOTOS 2.0
The Leica SL2 will arrive in an ecosystem already established with lenses, adapters, and accessories. Coinciding with its release and furthering its capabilities is the Leica FOTOS 2.0 app for iOS and Android. The existing free app will now be accompanied by a new Leica FOTOS Pro version on a subscription basis for $49.99 per year. Leica FOTOS Pro will also be available for iPads.
Connectivity – Studio Tethering
Also vital to the system is tethered shooting for studio photographers. The SL2 uses a USB-C port that can pull triple-duty for charging, data transfer and tethering. There will be new versions of the Leica Image Shuttle and Adobe Lightroom Leica Tether Plugin for both Windows and Mac.
