  • Order nos. - 10001-chrom, 10012-black
  • Variants - Black, chrome, 5-ring "Olympia" edition for 1972 Innsbruck Olympic Games
  • Motor - SLMOT is used with 14077 motor - see Leicaflex SL2 and SL2MOT
  • Description - "The camera incorporated full through the lens metering, the SL suffix standing for “selected light” metering area, coinciding with the circle of micro prisms in the center of the viewfinder.
The camera featured a depth of field preview button. The lenses made for the earlier Leicaflex could be used although they did not allow the metering system to be used.
Lenses to suit the Leicaflex SL incorporated two cams. The shutter speed dial control was now in black. Batteries were located in the camera base. There was a modified camera back lock. . .
1080 SL MOT were produced in 1972/74 in black with MOT engraved on the pentaprism housing. They had an internal drive shaft an all contacts and controls were mounted externally on the camera base plate thus allowing the motor to be attached or detached without removing the base plate." -jcb
