Leica TL2


The Leica TL2 backs up its premium design and price with modern tech. It's a solid camera for the fashion-forward photographer.

Stunning industrial design. Modern 24MP image sensor. 4K video capture. Mechanical and electronic shutter. 7.1 and 20fps burst shooting. Big touch screen and dual control dials. USB-C charging option. 32GB internal memory and SD slot. Wi-Fi.

Leica TL2


Andy Westlake takes a look at the latest update to Leica's stylish APS-C mirrorless camera line

Beautiful, tactile design ; Superb touchscreen interface ; Excellent raw image quality ; 32GB memory built-in

No built-in electronic viewfinder ; Uninspiring JPEG output ; No image stabilisation in either the body or lens ; Doesn’t work so well in low light

In use the TL2 is mostly pretty nimble. It turns on in a fraction of a second, and reacts near-instantly to the shutter button being depressed. The touchscreen is generally very responsive, although it can sometimes be oddly reluctant to respond to...
