Leica TL Mirrorless Camera Officially Announced

By on

Leica TL mirrorless camera has been officially announced. It is an updated version of the Leica T that was introduced in 2014.

The new model’s design has pretty much remained untouched. There is now a new Titanium color option with anodized finish. While a number of specs and features have been improved.

The new model still uses a 16-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor. Leica says it has improved autofocus performance, especially when shooting in continuous AF-C mode.

The Leica TL mirrorless system currently offers 6 lenses including 3 primes and 3 zoom. Users can now also make use of legacy Leica R-lenses via the R-Adapter L. The TL from Leica will be available in November for $1,695.
