Leica SL Half Case.

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has come across a Leica SL half case worth sharing. I got used to them since the M8, and kind of miss it now in the SL, although never before I used them in any of my SLRs. I have not found anything yet. I heard Arte Di Mano is developing one, and I would guess others are too. Thanks so much. m.

I've been using Luigi's on my M's. The fit has not been really up to par in one of them. Beyond that I ike their cases. I was not aware they already had a half case. Thanks so much John.

I received my case after his initial production round and find the case to be very precisely cut, on par with my Arte di Mano for M which honestly has taken the top spot in half cases in my opinion. I also got mine with a removable back label and have been pleased with that decision. Finally, the genius wrist strap really is the finishing touch, perfect thickness for the girthy SL.

Near, thanks for the update. Do you have pictures of the case with the wrist strap? I could be interested in it. I don't think Luigi has images of it yet. I do love having the back screen covered in my M, so I would do the same with the SL.

I too would find it useful since sometimes I wish to cover the back panel in a dark environment.

As the official US distributor, we are actively working with Arte Di Mano on developing half cases for the SL (Typ 601). We've already provided them an SL to create a pattern. The early designs look great and we expect to have the final cases soon.

i just got my SL and I m considering the Italian Angelo pelle case, i have already the angelo  Q case and i m very happy (also price look very competitive considering how costly are usually accessories for Leica  and especially cases)

 

this is the link from their site:

Angelo Pelle and Arte di Mano have half cases for the SL now... they both look very nice.  The AdM case has a flap over the battery compartment that is secured by a magnet. Not sure about that bit... like will the flap wear out from repeatedly being opened and closed?  Just crossed my mind is all

Just received the half case from arte di mano, very pleased, beautifully made and fit like a glove. I'm a happy customer

Arai,

The case looks really nice!  Am I correct in that it appears that, when attached, there is no tripod mounting hold available? (Don't know that I'd ever mount it on a tripod in the case, but thought I'd ask). :-)

I have Luigi's case. It is beautiful and well made. My main complain is that there is no tripod hole and you have to remove the case to change battery or get get the SD card. I like his design for MP where you can remove card and batteries without taking the case off. I think I will switch to AdM but it looks like there is no way to get to SD card slot without removing the case either. AP looks nice but same problem like Luigi's from what I can tell.

There is a tripod hole, arte di mano forgot to include me the screw with tripod mount so no need to remove the case when using tripod, check their website or ebay site.

It has battery door but yes you need to take off the case to remove the SD card.

Yes, indeed it is a Angelo Pelle strap.

 

I like it for it's safari look and comfort to either neck strap or wrap round my wrist for a more secured single handed handling the SL.

      I love Tuscany in every season, but especially so in the fall or spring, when mist can transform the landscape & the mood of your photos completely.

      Missing being there, I dug out two oldies from my Leica SL days taken both in 2017 on the Isle of Skye. Both images taken with Leica SL< Voigtlander 15mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest filters.
      After a day of constant rain the skies opened, rewarding our perseverance with an amazing sunset at Elgol. 3 seconds exposure for this one:

      So I recently bought preowned SL with the thought in mind that I want to built up lenses first over the next few years and then hop over to a current SL model probably SL3.
      I got plenty of M glas and will buy the Leica 24-90 sometime next year when I am back home in Germany. 
       
      In the meantime, I am able to get the TL 18-56 at around 1100$ preowned  alternatively Sigma 24-70 is in same range.
      I know with the crop in pixels the TL lens on the SL is a bit of a waste but am sensing that the TL lenses on Sl2 kinda megapixels are an epic low weight option.
      What to do? I know there are few threads on Sl18-56 but it doesnt seem that it ever really caught much interest.
      Sigma users seem happy but if I get a 24–90 anyhow does this make sense?
      Since the wide angles are on the map to appear do we think Leica would do a lower weight 24-70 themselves? Or is this to close to the 24-90?
      Cheers
      JK
