The designs of Leica cameras have gone largely unchanged for about 60 years. But Leica is launching a new line of cameras that are exceptionally modern, from their design to their technology. In collaboration with AUDI Design, the typical design language of Leica cameras was revisited and reinterpreted.
The Leica T is the company’s first line of mirrorless, non-rangefinder cameras, with a completely new industrial design and an all-new lens mount – and it’s a stunning work of aluminum art. The camera’s compact and solid body is manufactured with innovative precision techniques from a single block of aluminium at the Leica factory.
Initially two lenses will be available for the market launch of the Leica T-System. The Leica Vario-Elmar-T 18–56 mm f/3.5–5.6 ASPH and the fast and compact Leica Summicron-T 23 mm f/2 ASPH which offers a truly classic Leica focal length that is ideal for reportage photography.
The combination of a newly designed high-performance processor and sensor ensures outstanding picture quality in every situation. The Leica T features a large, APS-C-format, CMOS image sensor with over 16.5 megapixels (effective 16.2 MP) that, due to its size, performance and imaging characteristics, represents the ideal solution in the compact class of the Leica T.
The Leica T is available May 26th, 2014 from authorised Leica dealers.
