Expanded Leica SL2 Digital Camera with 24-70mm Lens Key Features:
As expected from all Leica SL lenses, this lens features the very same advanced optical structure that enables exceptional image-quality in every frame. The elaborate optical design is made up of 19 specially formulated, high-quality glass lens elements arranged into 15 groups, three of which feature aspherical surfaces on both sides. Nine of the specialist-glass elements feature Leica's anomalous partial dispersion technology provide effective chromatic correction through the 24-70mm focal range, and as a result even highlights are free of colour fringing.
The optical design is complimented by an 11-bladed diaphragm and a constant maximum of f2.8 that provides impressive low-light performance. But it's not just being able to continue shooting when it gets darker - This versatile aperture allows you to use faster shutter speeds in lower light as well as having enhanced and more expressive control over depth-of -field. As a result, you can create a dramatic sense of depth and separation between your subject and the background, and this is particularly effective with this lens and its minimum focusing distance of 18cm.
Leica SL2 Imaging Prowess
The Leica SL2 features a huge range of features and technology that truly elevate this camera to industry-leading camera standard. The centre of this camera revolves around its full-frame 47.3MP CMOS sensor and Maestro III image processor. It's this pairing (plus Leica's next-level optics) that provide unparalleled image quality. The sensor and processor duo provides a wide 14-stop dynamic range and an impressive ISO sensitivity range from 50-50,000, with noise-interference significantly suppressed. The Leica SL2 prides itself on its high-powered autofocus functionalities. This type of contrast-detection autofocus lends itself to both still and video modes, as well as subject tracking thanks to an accessible body-detection mode.
This camera offers up to 5K (4992 x 3744) recording with 10-bit colour, and DCI, UHD 4K and Full HD options. As well as this, the SL2 offers high-speed recording for UHD 4K60 with 30 fps playback, and Full HD 180 fps with 30 fps playback, offering 2x and 6x slower motion, respectively. To accompany this incredible video quality the SL2 features a dedicated Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) Photo Style mode as well as L-Log gamma profile, both of which offer more flexibility when you're colour grading in post.
Industry-Leading IBIS Technology
A feature that has been wanted amongst many Leica users is IBIS - In-body Image Stabilisation. This is where Leica and Panasonic share technology. The SL2 adopts the very same, extremely powerful and impressive 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilisation found in the likes of high-end Panasonic mirrorless cameras. This industry-leading technology offers tack-sharp handheld precision with the use of a 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilisation compensation system. To further utilise this sensor-shift stabilisation tech, you can make use of the SL2's multi-shot mode. This mode captures and puts together eight separate images to create a single and compile eight separate exposures to create a single 187MP raw or JPEG file.
Crafted for Convenience
The SL2 body has been designed with you in mind. It is equipped with dual UHS-II compatible SD card slots which offer flexible storage options, allowing for large cards and for segregating file types, saving duplicates or doubling your storage space for overflow recording. The decision to use SD UHS-II cards means that they can switch between cameras e.g. for an A and a B camera setup. The body has also been upgraded with an improved weather sealing rating of IPX54, offering splash, dust and freeze resistance; with the outer-shell further constructed from a magnesium-alloy for added durability.
To view the stunning images and videos that the SL2 can capture, you need an advanced EVF and LCD screen, both for capturing and reviewing your images. The SL2 features a truly incredible EyeRes Electronic ViewFinder (EVF) with a high-resolution 5.76m-dot OLED. This offers a 0.78x configurable viewing magnification with a smooth 120 fps refresh rate, 0.005 sec lag, and 10,000:1 contrast ratio. Once you've looked through this EVF, all others will seem insignificant in comparison.
Adding to its versatility and convenience to you, the user, the SL2 has a built-in Wi-Fi function that can be used in conjunction with Leica's FOTOS app for Android and iOS devices. This allows for easy and instant sharing of your images directly to a linked device as well as offering remote control and a live view of what your camera sees.
