The Leica SL (Typ 601) is an expensive, forward-thinking full-frame mirrorless camera that is a joy to use.

  • +

    Full-frame image sensor. Responsive, accurate autofocus system. 10.5fps shooting rate. Dust- and splash-proof design. Aluminum body. Huge, sharp EVF. Touch-screen LCD. In-camera Wi-Fi and GPS. Dual SD slots. 4K video recording. Uncompressed 4K HDMI output.

  • -

    Expensive. Lens system in its infancy. Some controls can't be remapped. Omits built-in flash.

20 October 2015

With Leica-quality photo and video plus fast performance, the Leica SL has a lot to recommend. But the uncomfortable grip, big body and lens, and high price might make many buyers hesitate.

  • +

    The Leica SL's photo and video quality are first-rate, its continuous shooting is fast with excellent autofocus in good light, and it has almost all the features you might want. Plus it has some very streamlined aspects to its design and operation.

  • -

    The grip is really uncomfortable, very-low-light autofocus is a bit slow, and the body and lenses are huge for a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera.

28 October 2015

The latest edition from Leica, a full-frame 24mp mirrorless system camera makes it a very strong competitor. We were lucky enough to put the Leica SL to the test before it was officially announced and this is what we found.

I'm an Architect who's been into photography for at least 50 years. I've always shot with a 35mm SLR and my first digital SLR was the Nikon D1x (which at the time cost almost as much as this Leica SL does today).
