Leica SL fast full-frame mirrorless camera delivers, but needs some design refinement


It's the fastest full-frame mirrorless thus far and takes great photos and video, but it's not the most comfortable camera to use.

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.

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.

Leica Reflex reviews


I'm biased. The SL is my all-time favorite 35mm SLR camera. It has its faults, which I'll explain as best as I can, but, IMHO, for the photographer who wants a no-frills 35mm film SLR, the SL will last a lifetime while delivering first-class results.

Compatible with many Leica lens via adapter ; Fast autofocus and handling ; Impressive electronic viewfinder ; Largely excellent image quality ; Superb build quality

Very expensive ; Heavy and large for its category ; Only one fully compatible lens at launch
