Leica is about to announce the SL2, the successor to the Leica SL mirrorless digital camera. But before the official announcement, a few photos and specs have leaked, showing us the upcoming Leica’s camera.
Leica has just announced a new addition to their SL zoom lens family: Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16-35 f/3.5–4.5 ASPH. It’s made for Leica’s full frame mirrorless SL system, and it’s made to let you take “a wider view of the world.” With the new 16-35mm, Leica aims for architecture and landscape photographers, but this lens can also be useful for group portraits, weddings, reportage, documentary or travel photography.
Leica has just announced a pair of APO-Summicron lenses for its full frame mirrorless cameras. Those would be the Leica APO-Summicron-SL 75mm f2 ASPH and Leica APO-Summicron-SL 90mm f2 ASPH. While designed for full frame, they will also work on Leica’s crop sensor cameras, too. These lenses aren’t cheap, though. One’s a little under five grand, the other’s slightly over.
The camera also boasts a WiFi connection, a weather-sealed body and a new 4.4MP EyeRes EVF.
The camera shoots an impressive 11 FPS and its video capabilities enable shooting 4K@30FPS with a clean HDMI output port @ 4:2:2 10-bit format.
The site has since removed the “offending page” but not before MR quickly captured the images along with the Google Translated text from the Italian post.
