The addition of the fast Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70mm f/2.8 ASPH Lens for Leica L-Mount cameras was destined to be combined with the highly regarded SL2-S camera in kit form. Together these offer content creators a hybrid system which impresses across all of its features and includes the latest technologies available from Leica. Whether you shoot in low light, hand held, from a tripod or you run and gun, the results which can be achieved are seriously impressive. Video can be recorded without limit in Leica’s L-LOG gamma for colour grading, with extensive internal and external movie options available. High speed AF works seamlessly with the zoom lens, allowing users to capture and track faces and bodies in the frame even when making erratic movements.
24 megapixels is fairly standard for a fast hybrid camera, however Leica has ensured this will remain contemporary for years to come, not just with rock solid build quality and metal housings, but through capabilities which are similarly durable. The wide dynamic range, high ISO capability and in-camera multi axis stabilisation all work towards delivering the best results achievable to content creators. Likewise a zoom lens of this calibre characterised by sharp, detailed results will impress any newcomer or existing user of Leica mirrorless cameras.
