Pre-order new Leica TL2 Mirrorless

It’s new camera time! Leica has officially announced the new TL2 mirrorless camera, with a 24mp APS-C sensor and Leica L-Bayonet Mount. It is available in the two customary Leica black and silver color schemes, with a pre-order price of $1950 at B&H Photo.

This new mirrorless camera now “evens the score” as we have 7 new DSLRs and 7 new Mirrorless cameras in 2017. There’s still plenty of time until the end of the year. But there is no Photokina this year, so we may need a penalty shootout if it ends up being a tie 😉

Leica SL (Typ 601) Mirrorless for $5995

Work has began to start another “Price Charts” series. As I am assembling the lists and price-checking cameras, a number of deal posts will be generated. This is the first one. The Leica SL (Typ 601) Mirrorless Digital Camera goes for $7450 at Adorama and by various at Amazon, but as of the time of writing, it appears to be on sale for $5995 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo.

PS: you can check the previous editions of the “Price Charts” at the Price Charts Archives. I will post separate alerts when the new July 2017 editions are out. I typically try to do one per day, and start and finish them within the same week, since manufacturer-initiated prices usually change on Sundays.

We haven’t mentioned the Leica T Mirrorless camera in a while, but while price-checking for the new Price Charts series, I noticed that the price of the Leica T Mirrorless body only is $1095 with free shipping at B&H Photo. This is an APS-C non-rangefinder mirrorless system Leica introduced earlier on. It uses its own T-mount lenses, but of course can use the classic Leica M-mount lenses via adapters.

Pre-order new Leica X-U element-proof Big Sensor Prime for $2950

Sometimes the display cases Leica collectors use to showcase their prized possessions are not completely dustproof or waterproof. Leica has solved those problems today with the brand new Leica X-U (Type 113) fixed lens camera, a 16mp APS-C CMOS with a 23mm f1.7 lens and with a “Water, Dust, and Shockproof Construction”. This new camera is now available for pre-order for $2950 at Adorama and B&H Photo… This too has been added to the New Cameras of 2016 tracking page

Pre-order new Leica SL not-SLR FF camera and 24-90mm f2.8-4 lens

Because we don’t have enough camera systems out here these days, Leica has announced today a brand new full frame mirrorless system. And to troll SLR users, they are naming it “SL” 🙂 The new camera and lens are now available for pre-order:

+ Leica SL Typ 601 camera body only for $7450 at Adorama and B&H Photo

+ Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90mm f2.8-4 ASPH. Lens for $4950 at Adorama and B&H Photo

Wait whaaaat? A new Leica system and the first lens announced is a ZOOM? Let the protests outside the Leica Headquarters begin 🙂 But fear not, they will have adapters for their M-lenses and R-lenses and S-lenses and Cine-lenses!

The new camera and lens have been added to their respective segments in the New Cameras and Lenses Tracking page, decidedly bringing the averages up in both categories 🙂
