Leica S-System and S2 DSLR


Leica introduces the new S-System and the first camera of the S-System, the S2 professional DSLR. The Leica S2 features a 37 Megapixel 30x45mm image sensor, which is 56% larger than those used in 35mm full-frame DSLRs.

Other than the S2 camera, Leica prepared also nine S-System lenses. The product manager of Leica, Maike Harberts, expects “S2 to be able to perform twice as fast as Hasselblad H-series cameras and put in a better performance at high ISOs too.”
