Pre-order new Leica CL mirrorless and 18mm f2.8 lens

It’s the November surprise! Leica has a new APS-C mirrorless camera out, it is the brand new CL, and Leica is boldly going with this one, it’s USB-C time! It has a 24mp APS-C (rhymes with USB-C) CMOS sensor and has the Leica L-mount, so you can use TL and SL lenses with it. And that’s before you start using adapters.

It is available for pre-order in these configurations:

+ CL body for $2800 at B&H Photo

+ CL with 18mm f2.8 for $3800 at B&H Photo

+ CL with Vario-Elmar-T 18-56mm f3.5-5.6 ASPH Lens at B&H Photo

Wait, what’s that 18mm f2.8 lens? That’s a brand new lens that came out at the same time, it is the Leica Elmarit-TL 18 mm f/2.8 ASPH L-mount APS-C format lens, and it is available for pre-order for $1300 in black or silver at B&H Photo.

These have been added to the New Cameras and Lenses of 2017. This new announcement furthered the Mirrorless lead over DSLRs in 2017 to an insurmountable 13-8.

PS: the Leica zoom lens (!?!@?#!@#?!@!) is not a brand new one. It’s been around for a a while
