An image of the Leica SL2-S has been posted on an overseas news site. It seems to be equipped with 24 million pixel CMOS

The only difference I see from the current SL2 is Leica is blacked out on the front and the SL2-S nomenclature on the hot shoe, also black. Where did you find the sensor information?

Graded to my liking.  Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden!

First time Leica brings out a reduced version which does not cost more ...

FYI, just called my local Leica store. They have 3 in stock. I am picking mine up later this afternoon. Very severe GAS condition right now.

The answer to the S5.

As expected. Typically, Leica reuses the bodies, as well as most of the electronics, to a large degree. Having the S5, I'm interested learning the specs of the SL2-S, not buying one myself. No fleip-screen, apparently.

Ah ! That’s interesting. By luck, have you ever used the sl2? I’m very curious to know the difference in AF performance between the s5 and the sl2, stills and videos... any info to share ? 

S5 is quicker and more reliable than SL2. Not significantly, but noticeable. Not a game changer, but good to have.

Any size comparison between the previous sl2?

Now that a more portable sized sl wil be soon available, do you folks see a likelyhood of a M mount autofocus adapter  for the L mount system? 

Id think the adapter and sl2-s would be a perfect pairing for transitioning into SL/ L mount

Give me an SL2-M, and my wallet is open. Those Summicrons on a Monochrome sensor would be spectacular. Great for portraits, landscapes etc. They have done it with the m and Q product lines, why not the SL? A lot cheaper than the monochrome Phase system.


A Monochrom S would still be much cheaper than the Phase (even if based on the S3 rather than the S007), and would likely provide even better tonal gradations than an SL2-M.  But I’d prefer the benefits of the SL2’s IBIS, focus aids, etc for handheld work, as the S would mostly be tripod based, which is becoming increasingly rare for me.  And of course the S would be much  less budget friendly than the SL2.

I’ve stayed away from the M10 Monochrom (and M10-R), but an SL2 Monochrom might  tempt for landscapes and such.  My M9M would better serve for more discreet walk around and ‘street’ use.

I really hope this means at least external ProRes Raw output with atomos! I believe their past interview stated they withheld from doing this because of the high megapixel count (correct me if I'm wrong). When I read 25fps DNG photos, that really sparked a hopeful idea for higher bit-rate raw video output as well– maybe higher than 12-bit? Though I know that is a far stretch for them 😢
