Not long after its global unveiling, the Leica SL is now available in Malaysia. As a direct competitor to the likes of Sony’s A7 series of cameras, this is a pretty impressive full-frame mirrorless camera; with a price tag to match, of course.
In terms of specification, the SL has a 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor, a Maestro II processor, ISO of up to 50,000, an EyeRes electronic viewfinder (which Leica claims has a latency time below the treshold of perception), and a high-speed autofocus system that the company said is even faster than any professional camera – including SLRs. The SL is also capable of 4K video recording at 30fps, and up to 120fps at 1080p.
Existing owners of Leica lenses will be happy to know that all of them are compatible with the SL. Leica T lenses can be used without any adapter, while the company’s M, S, and R lenses will require one. Other than that, the SL also has built-in WiFi, giving it the ability to connect to an Android or iOS device via a dedicated app.
The Leica SL is now available for purchase in Malaysia. The body of the camera goes for RM30,300, while the Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90mm f/2.8-4 lens go for RM18,800. More details on the Leica SL can be found on its official product page.
