Leica SL2-S Review


Stabilized full-frame sensor ; 24MP BSI CMOS design ; 25fps drive with electronic shutter ; Intelligent autofocus system ; Stunning OLED viewfinder ; IP54 weather protection ; 4K60 video at 10-bit quality

Limited to 5fps with continuous focus ; Fixed rear display ; Premium pricing

The Leica SL2-S's striking design comes with high-end pricing to match, but it's a lovely mirrorless camera for those who can afford it.

Leica SL2-S initial review


The SL2-S marks Leica's entry into the stills/video hybrid market. At this point it's very much a cheaper SL2, though its future looks bright, as you'll learn in our initial review.

Leica SL2-S review


The Leica SL2-S is a lower resolution sister camera to the Leica SL2, that retains a lot of the SL2's features, but not the price

The least expensive SL camera ; Excellent Leica build quality ; Fewer megapixels can be a benefit

More expensive than alternatives ; Contrast detect AF isn't great ; It's a large and heavy camera

The SL2-S looks like a great option for those that are already using the L mount. The price looks steep by regular standards, but it's much lower than the higher-resolution Leica SL2. What's really good about this camera is that even with such a...

Leica SL2-S review


The Leica SL2-S is aimed at videographers with a huge range of video-friendly specs, but misses the mark by not including an articulating screen.

Good price (for a Leica) Very sturdy construction Strong video specs

Very heavy and bulky Expensive (compared to other L Mount cameras) Autofocusing can be unreliable

The Leica SL2-S is a slightly strange proposition. It’s aimed at videographers with a huge range of video-friendly specs, but misses the mark by not including an articulating screen. It works well as a hybrid stills-video shooter, but with its handling...

Leica SL2-S review


What's not to Leica

Minimalist styling ; Excellent image quality ; Good for stills and video

Expensive ; Heavy ; Occasional issues focusing

A stunningly built camera, but with a few foibles we just can’t look past
