EyeRes® viewfinder Complete control at any time

The Leica SL is the world’s first camera conceived for professional photography to feature an electronic viewfinder. With a latency time below the threshold of perception, an impressive resolution of 4.4 million pixels and the largest possible viewfinder image, the EyeRes® viewfinder developed especially for the Leica SL gives you complete control over every picture you take.

Full frame Highest picture quality under all conditions

The 24 MP CMOS sensor of the Leica SL has 4000 × 6000 pixels with a pixel pitch of 6 × 6 µm² on an active surface area of 24 × 36 mm. This means that you can depend on the imaging quality of a 35 mm, full-frame format. The omission of a low-pass filter ensures that the Leica SL delivers maximum image sharpness.

High-speed Autofocus

Never miss a moment

Capturing exactly the right moment is not only essential in sport photography. When used together with the Vario-Elmarit–SL 24–90 f/2.8–4 ASPH. and the Leica APO-Vario-Elmarit-SL 90–280 f/2.8-4 zoom lenses, the Leica SL has one of the fastest autofocus systems of all professional cameras – including SLRs. The camera moves the focus from infinity to the closest focusing distance in less than 110 milliseconds.
