LEICA SL IS HERE, Let The War Begin

It's finally here, what are my thoughts ? Mixed. Thumbs up for effort, certainly one well crafted camera to add to a very competitive market. Hot on the heels of the STUPENDOUSLY AWESOME Leia Q, they may just hit another one strait out of the ballpark with the SL. Once a few primes arrive to match the camera bodies impressive specs they will have a serious camera to offer many a Professional shooters. Until I have a play I can only speculate.

Big news in the camera industry today: Leica has just announced the Leica SL, an entirely new mirrorless camera system that competes directly against the likes of Sony. Yes, the Leica M is technically a “mirrorless camera,” but the new SL is a new non-rangefinder, full-frame camera with interchangeable lenses.

Leica says the new SL is “a mirrorless camera system designed for professional photographers.” Inside the Leica SL is a 24-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor that has a max ISO of 50,000. A low-pass filter is left out for maximum sharpness and contrast.
