Once the “limited edition” and new colours start coming from Leica, that means a replacement is on the near horizon. We expect to see the Leica SL3 and Leica SL3-S announced in the first quarter of 2024. We expect the video side to be very Panasonic and the stills side to remain “Leica”. We are expecting the same same 60mp sensor found in the Leica M11 and Leica Q3 to make its way to the Leica SL3. As for the Leica SL3-S, that is an unknown at this point.

Press Release

Wetzlar, 15th June 2023.

Leica cameras have always remained true to their line. The design follows the function and is characterised by minimalist features concentrating on the essentials. It speaks an unmistakable language with a special emphasis on visual and haptic value. This unique look is also reflected in the new product variant of the Leica SL2 in silver. Furthermore, it is reminiscent of the typical design of the popular silver Leica M and Leica R camera classics.

With the SL2 in silver, Leica Camera AG complies with the wish of its customers and once again demonstrates a sustained exchange with the very people who use Leica products. The design variant presents itself with a silver anodised top plate and base plate. Its elegant black leather covering is identical to the Leica M11 and rounds off the classic look. Visually, the silver Leica SL2 is particularly appealing in combination with the M-Adapter L and the legendary, compact M lenses.

The technical specifications of the silver Leica SL2 are the same as those of the existing series model in black. Extremely intuitive, easy and comfortable to use, it produces photographs and videos of impressive image quality thanks to its powerful 47 MP CMOS sensor. Its high dynamic range and a sensitivity range of up to ISO 50,000 deliver outstanding pictures in all lighting conditions. These can be triggered remotely via the Leica FOTOS app and transferred via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Many other functions ensure a seamless workflow and allow the Leica SL2 to be conveniently integrated into professional setups.

The Leica SL2 in silver will be available globally at all Leica Stores, the Leica Online Store and authorised dealers starting now. The retail price will be €7,100.00 including VAT.

In addition, Leica is offering two kits with an attractive price advantage to match the new design variant. The silver Leica SL2 is available in a kit together with the versatile Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70 f/2.8 ASPH. for €9,100.00. The second kit consists of the silver anodised design version and the classic Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 ASPH. including M-Adapter L and is available for €13,890.00. This also allows for the possibility of combining all M-Lenses ever produced with SL-Cameras and thus using their unmistakable look for photography and videography.

  1. Camera aesthetics are about as "modern" as their WIFI. Canon is the Jeep of cameras. Purely functional but not exactly stylish.
    That is your respectable point of view, yet,a bit risky to compare Leicas with poorly assembled 4X4s.
    I do really like their aesthetics, the tactile quality, the ergonomics, the menu, far less the limited choice of lenses, their WIFI and their horrible prices...
    Unfortunately, you can no longer adapt Canon EF lenses, this means no T&S, no luminous teles, and, sadly, no macro ring-flash (unless in manual mode). The re-badged Nissin strobes cost twice as much...
