For photographers who seek the perfect mirrorless camera, Leica has just launched the Leica TL2, the second generation of the brand’s APS-C mirrorless camera family. In traditional Leica fashion the new TL2 is itself a device of considerable attractiveness – the camera’s entire body is milled from a single block of aluminium then hand-polished to perfection, creating a slim, ergonomic minimalist camera.
Yet despite the slender build, the Leica TL2 is a class leading performer, equipped with a newly developed 24-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and Maestro II high-performance image processor that for extremely fast autofocusing, high speed electronic shutter and a very speedy 20 frames per second continuous shooting mode. Compatible with Leica’s TL-series (APS-C) and SL-series (full-frame) lenses, the Leica TL2 can capture 4K videos at 30fps, has integrated WiFi and App connectivity and features touchscreen controls on a tiltable 3.7-inch screen. All these new features does put a crimp on the camera’s battery life, but as it comes with HDMI output and USB 3.0 Type-C users can actually recharge the TL2 on the go from powerbanks.
The Leica TL2 is now available in either black or silver version from all Leica stores for S$2,980.
