Leica has expanded their APS-C offerings with a new interchangeable lens mirroless system camera: the Leica CL, as well the Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2,8 pancake lens.
With similar specifications to the recently-launched Leica TL2, the CL trades in the pure modern unibody design of the TL2 for more iconic Leica styling. Still sporting the same 24 megapixel APS-C sensor, Maestro II processor and L mount, the CL features a more classic body design with three rear buttons and directional pad like its big brother, the M10. And, instead of needing an add-on EVF, the CL has one built-in, with the same specs as the add-on Visoflex (Typ 020) that’s used on the M10 and TL2.
The CL is slated to start shipping by the end of 2017 and is priced at $2,795. Leica will be offering two CL kits as well.. For those wanting the smallest possible package, the CL Prime Kit includes the new 18mm f/2.8 Elmamrit-TL pancake lens, which was also announced today, for $3,795. For those wanting the convenience of a standard zoom the CL Vario Kit comes bundled with the 18-56mm Vario-Elmar-TL for $3,995. Both kits represent a decent savings over buying a la carte, $295 and $450.The CL and both CL kits are now available for pre-order at Leica Boutique BCC.
