The new Leica SL is set to ship mid-November. This is a radical departure for the German camera manufacturer. First, it’s mirrorless. Second, it will accept most Leica lenses whether M, T, R or S mounts with the appropriate mount converter. Tom Brichta of Leica USA has left a sample here and it will be available through Sunday November 8. Come on by and check out the future of Leica today. Pre-order deposits are being accepted.
