Leaked photos of Leica SL2 full-frame mirrorless camera with 47 MP sensor reveal surprising textured design
The Nokishita blog has shared two pictures of the rumored Leica SL2. The first camera that used the Leica SL-System, the SL (Typ 601), was unveiled nearly four years ago so a successor has been a long time coming. The alleged SL2 has changes to offer potential owners with the exterior and the interior.
The first obvious thing to notice is the design. The Leica SL (Typ 601) had a rather sleek overall appearance with a mostly smooth body. The Leica SL2 has taken on a more rugged look, with the camera bearing more of a grippier design language that makes it look oddly anachronistic. The design has already been met with some criticism.
As for the innards, rumors about the Leica SL2 full-frame mirrorless camera point towards the inclusion of a 47 MP sensor (compared to the 24 MP unit found in the predecessor), and cine mode video and 4K video capabilities. As for price, the Leica SL2 is likely to cost somewhere in the US$6,000 region.
