Due to a leak on the Internet we got our hands on some information about a new Leica SLR camera. And it not only concerns a new SLR, it includes a brand-new digital photographic system as well, the Leica S-system. The Leica S2 will be the first DSLR camera in the new S-system, boosting 37 Megapixel of resolution.
The sensor used is 56% larger than those used in a 35mm full-frame SLR. With the Leica S2 camera Leica will aim at the top-end professional photographer shooting advertising, fashion and other commercial work. Furthermore, a line-up of nine lenses can be used with the Leica S2 digital SLR.
Leica L2 SLR with premium AF objectives
Leica has once again revolutionized the world of photography with a digital S-System that's perfect for professional use. The Leica S2, with its premium AF objectives including everything from ultra wide to super telephoto, is an absolute photographic highlight. The digital SLR camera has a special new sensor with 30 x 45 mm and 37.5 megapixels. The S2's metal body is appreciably smaller and easier to carry than similar models from other camera brands, and yet it's also nearly twice as fast thanks to ultra modern processor technology.
Totally new Leica S-sytem - Leica L2 camera
With the Leica S2, Leica has created an entirely new class of camera - technically innovative but incredibly flexible thanks to a wide selection of accessories. It’s a must for every professional photographer who is looking to upgrade from standard 35mm SLR systems.
