Leica has announced a new member of its T family of cameras, the Leica TL2. The follow-up to the original TL mirrorless camera, the new Leica TL2 is a much improved entry-level shooter wearing the iconic red badge with a massive touchscreen on the back. The previous T and TL models are beautiful looking cameras but lack the outright firepower to go toe to toe with competitors. Although, the TL2 shares the same design and main features as its predecessor, the camera introduces a new improved 24-megapixel APS-C sensor along with a faster processor, better autofocus, a more user-friendly interface, and a new electronic shutter.
The Leica TL2 supports recording in 4K up to 30fps, full HD at 60fps or 720p HD at 120fps for slow motion capture and the camera’s ISO ranges from 50-50,000, an improvement from the TL1’s max ISO of 12,500. There are plenty of native T-type lenses available along with adaptors for screwing on other Leica system lenses. All the specs make the Leica TL2 very competitive against the latest cameras available from Sony and Fujifilm. The Leica TL2s is available at Leica boutiques and authorized retailers for $1,950 (body-only) in black and silver color options.
