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 😉
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.
