Quick Overview:

  • 47-megapixel full-frame sensor brings new levels of image quality
  • Built-in Body Image Stabilization for steadier shots with all lenses
  • 4K recording with Cine Mode for a pro-level video output
  • Streamlined menu interface and button layout for easier/faster use
  • Improved ergonomics & weather-sealed rugged build made in Germany


The Leica SL2 combines a brand new 47-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with state-of-the-art sensor-based Body Image Stabilization to get the best image and video quality possible with all Leica lenses. The new Maestro III processor enables fast burst shooting and 4K for the highest quality and flexibility, and the optional Cine Mode speaks the language of cinematographers who require a professional workflow. The new OLED EVF with 5.76 million dots of resolution guarantees the clearest view and composition through a Leica lens. These new technical achievements paired with a larger 3.2" rear LCD and the essential Leica three-button control layout make the SL2 the most capable and approachable professional system camera.


New Sensor with Body Image Stabilization

The newly developed 47-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor – with an ISO range of 50 - 50,000 – gives photographers all the resolution they need while still maintaining high speeds and versatile low-light shooting. The integrated BIS system offers up to 5.5 stops of stabilization with any lens, including adapted Leica lenses never before stabilized, allowing stills and video to be steadier and helping guarantee sharp images even in low light with slower shutter speeds.


4K Video Recording with Cine Mode

The Leica SL2 is a perfect hybrid platform for both stills and video, now recording 4K across the full sensor. It goes further with 4K video up to 60 fps, a cropped 5K mode, built-in 3.5mm headphone and mic jacks, and 10-bit quality direct to card. For pros operating in a high-level workflow, the SL2 can be set to Cine Mode to speak the language of cinematographers. For example, shutter speed becomes shutter angle and ISO becomes ASA.


Leica Object Detection Autofocus System

The advanced contrast-detect autofocus system of the Leica SL2 is capable of face detection and body detection, to track moving subjects and maintain pinpoint accuracy. Intelligent-AF (iAF) can be used to focus on still subjects and begin tracking them as soon as they move. The focusing settings can also be fine-tuned by the user to adjust the behavior and tolerances for tracking.


Long Exposures in Less Time

Users now have the option of turning off Long Exposure Noise Reduction in the menu of the Leica SL2, allowing photographers who capture long exposures to work quicker and more conveniently. Capture detail in even the darkest scenes with a maximum shutter time of 30 minutes.
