Leica SL3 Rumored to be Announced on March 21-22

By on

Leica SL3 rumored to be announced on March 21-22 with a price tag under €8,000. If the rumored dates are true, it will be announced after CP+ 2024.  We don’t know which rumor is correct, but in any case, there is no doubt that Leica SL3 will appear soon.

Also, Panasonic’s S1R II is rumored to be based on the SL3 and will be released a few months after the SL3, so if Leica SL3 is announced in March, Panasonic S1R II will likely be released in early summer at the latest.

Here are the rumored specifications:
