EyeRes viewfinder

Complete control at any time.

The Leica SL is the world's first camera conceived for professional photography to feature an electronic viewfinder. With a latency time below the threshold of perception and an impressive resolution of 4.4 million pixels, the EyeRes viewfinder developed especially for the Leica SL gives you complete control over every picture you take.As its image can be electronically brightened, the EyeRes viewfinder is superior to optical viewfinders, particularly in challenging lighting conditions.

Full frame

Highest picture quality under all conditions.

The 24 MP CMOS sensor of the Leica SL has 4000 6000 pixels with a pixel pitch of 6 6 m on an active surface area of 24 36 mm. This means that you can depend on the imaging quality of a 35 mm, full-frame format.To ensure maximum image sharpness, the Leica SL intentionally does without a low-pass filter. The result is impressive dynamic range, excellent contrast rendition, exceptional sharpness, the highest resolution, and noise-free images in almost all lighting conditions.

Never miss a moment.

Capturing exactly the right moment is not only essential in sport photography. When used together with the Vario.

Elmarit'sL 24 90 mm f/2.8 4 ASPH. and the Leica APO.
