The Leica TL2 brings mirrorless cameras to point-and-shoot size, but for a price



Leica always has a new artisan camera up its sleeves and
today’s announcement is no different. The T
series cameras have always been the size of an everyday
point-and-shoot, but the TL2 introduces a new 24-megapixel
APS-C sensor, making it worth shooting with the interchangeable
lenses that range from 17mm to 200mm in focal length.

It’s pretty impressive, no matter how you spin it or what your
needs are as a photographer. However, if you’re a sports or
action shooter then you’re going to scoff at the TL2’s
continuous shooting speeds — it tops out at 7 fps (with
mechanical shutter) and 20 fps (with electronic shutter).

The TL2 is worth
taking note of because it allows Leica’s T series to stay
competitive
against the faster, more powerful mirrorless
cameras, 
including Leica’s own SL mirrorless
full-frame camera.

Since there’s no
optical or electronic viewfinder (unless you consider buying
one for the hot shoe mount), all your photos will be seen
through the 3.7-inch LCD screen. Leicas aren’t known for
their video prowess, but the TL2 does support recording in 4K
up to 30fps, full HD at 60fps or 720p HD at 120fps for
slow motion capture.

The TL2’s ISO ranges from 50-50,000, an improvement from the
TL1’s max ISO of 12,500. While it means you won’t see
everything in the dark, but nevertheless won’t be
afraid to whip out the TL2 past golden hour. Like most other
modern cameras, the Leica TL2 can be used remotely from a phone
app, where you can then import and export images to social
media.

Leica TL2s will be available at Leica boutiques and authorized
retailers starting today, for $1,950 (body-only) in black and
silver color options.
