Stunning EyeResElectronic Viewfinder
Mirrorless – without ifs and buts. The EyeRes viewfinder technology developed especially for the Leica SL2 is superior to optical viewfinders in every respect. The size of the view is reminiscent of medium-format cameras. All decisive parameters – such as exposure, depth of focus, and white balance – are simulated in the viewfinder, and their precise effects can be optimally assessed. At the same time, in contrast to SLR cameras, the Leica SL2 is almost completely silent.
Electronic functions like a dual-axis leveling aid, various grids, or Focus Peaking can be displayed in the EyeRes viewfinder to help you get the very best from your subjects. You get to see the final picture before you press the shutter release. By the way, the EyeRes viewfinder is activated in the simplest imaginable way – by looking through it.
The Leica SL2 offers you access to an enormous range of high-quality lenses. In addition to the lenses of the SL-System, you can also use Leica T/TL mount lenses without an adapter. In fact, with the appropriate adapters, you have a choice of 145 different lenses.
For example, you can take advantage of the exceptional performance of Leica S- and M-Lenses. In the case of Leica M-Lenses, six-bit coding preserves all functions, such as exposure metering, automatic aperture priority exposure, and manual setting, to their full extent. Thanks to the Leica R-Adapter L, even the extensive range of proven R-Lenses can be used on the Leica SL. A further 21 cine lenses are also available for video recording in professional quality.
20 Frames per Second Maestro II Processor
The decisive moment often exists for only a fraction of a second. The Leica SL2 responds instantaneously to your commands and translates them into perfect pictures. Every time. Thanks to its Maestro II series high-performance processor, the Leica SL2 achieves the best performance currently possible in the professional camera class.
47.3 Megapixel CMOS Sensor
The Leica SL2 stands for excellent picture quality – even in difficult situations. The sensor of the Leica SL2 has 8368 x 5584 pixels and an ISO sensitivity range from 100 to 50,000. It is also capable of shooting continuous sequences of full, 47-megapixel resolution images at a speed of up to 20 frames per second.
The omission of a low-pass filter ensures that the Leica SL2 delivers maximum sharpness. The Leica SL2 offers impressive dynamic range, excellent contrast rendition, exceptional sharpness, the highest resolution, and noise-free images in almost all lighting conditions.
RuggedReady for Professional Use, New Water Seals
The Leica SL2 was conceived to fulfill the special needs of everyday professional photography. From the elaborate construction with the finest materials to the precise finishing of all its components. Its chassis, weighs only 835 g and offers perfect protection for the sensitive components inside the camera.
The use of numerous seals in the camera body, its control elements, and the Leica SL-Lenses makes it virtually impossible for dust, moisture, or water to get inside. Specially hardened front glasses with AquaDura® coating protect the lenses against dirt, dust, and moisture.
