Leica SL (Type 601) Coming in October

As we reported earlier, Leica will be holding a "Das Wesentliche" event on October 20, 2015. It's a given we'll see some new kit...

Leica "Das Wesentliche" Event on October 20, 2015

Leica will be holding a "Das Wesentliche" event on October 20, 2015. This is when they'll typically announce one of more new products - as they have in the past.

There's also talk of a Leica Q (Type 116) camera with interchangeable lenses. Though we're not betting on that. Leica has already stated that if the Leica Q proves popular (which admittedly, it has) then they will consider releasing it in other focal lengths. There's been no talk of an interchangeable lens version that we're aware of. Read more below for details!

A Year Later - Leica S (Type 007) Set to Arrive

Announced nearly a year ago the Leica S (Type 007) medium format camera is finally set to arrive in September of this year (next month). Granted, the original plans called for a "Spring 2015" release - so technically it's only half a year late. In terms of digital camera lifespan, that's not a short amount of time... Read more below!
