A new vision for professional photography
LEICA SL (Typ 601)
A vision of the future
The Leica SL-System marks the beginning of a new era of professional photography. As the first mirrorless system camera of its kind, it offers an impressive range of innovative features and sets entirely new standards with regard to versatility and handling – and rugged resilience.
It simultaneously offers maximum compatibility with the lenses of other Leica systems. Discover the future of photography – made in Germany. Discover the Leica SL-System.
Due to its exceptionally high resolution and imperceptible latency time, the EyeRes viewfinder developed especially for the Leica SL could well be mistaken for an optical finder. It does, however, offer all the advantages of an electronic viewfinder: Furthermore, the Leica SL also has the fastest autofocus of all professional cameras – including DSLRs.
With its 24-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, the Leica SL guarantees excellent picture quality – even in the most difficult situations. The ISO sensitivity value can, for instance, be set to a maximum of 50,000. Its Maestro II series processor enables continuous shooting at up to 11 frames per second with full 24-megapixel resolution.
Fast. Rugged. Mirrorless.
Imaging quality, performance, and versatility: the record values achieved by the Leica SL deliver clear proof that the mirrorless full-frame camera is the technology of the future. An outstanding performance profile is not the only thing that speaks for the Leica SL. The professional character of the camera is also defined by a control concept reduced to essentials, excellent handling, and extremely rugged resilience.
