It came out of nowhere, a brand-new full-frame professional level mirrorless camera and lens system: the Leica SL. It combines a new lens system (using the existing mount from the T) with an extremely high resolution viewfinder and a sensor based on the one found in the coveted (by some, not all) Leica Q. That's quite a recipe, but is the camera really worth the lavish sum of its parts? We've done some preliminary studio testing, including a dynamic range analysis, and put it in front of our standard test scene. Head to the next page to see how the SL shapes up in our testing*

* Please note that the Leica SL that we used for these tests is a near but not final production camera running pre-production firmware. As such, image quality may not reflect the output of final shipping cameras (although it is likely to be very close).
