Leica CL brings built-in viewfinder, conventional control layout to L lineup

Leica has just released the CL, the forth in its series of APS-C L-mount cameras. Despite sharing a name with a camera released in the mid-70s, the new CL is a thoroughly modern ILC, with a 24MP sensor and built-in electronic viewfinder.

Leica CL: first sample images

The Leica CL is a 24MP rangefinder-style mirrorless camera, which sits alongside the TL2 in the company's APS-C lineup. We've been using one for a few days – check out our gallery of images.

The Leica CL is (almost) what the TL should have been

While it shares a name with one of Leica's most popular and affordable cameras of the 1970s, the new CL is separated from its namesake by more than just years. We've been using one for a few days - click through for a detailed first-impressions report.

Gear of the Year 2017 - Barney's choice (part 1): Leica M10

As 2017 winds down (yeah, we're shocked too) it's a great time to reflect on the past year. Over the coming week's we'll revisit some personal favorite cameras and lenses that we encountered this year, and what made them stand out.

Panasonic Lumix G9: What you need to know

The G9 is designed for speed, durability, and versatility. Between using one for a few days and digging into its lengthy spec sheet, here's what we think you need to know about it.

First samples: Leica Thambar-M 90mm F2.2

Leica just announced a new lens – a redesigned version of the classic 90mm Thambar F2.2 from the 1930s. We're working on a full gallery, but in the meantime, Leica has sent us some exclusive first samples.

Hands-on with Zeiss Milvus 25mm F1.4

Zeiss just announced a new prime lens for full-frame Canon and Nikon DSLRs: the Milvus 25mm F1.4. It's very big, very heavy, and should be very high-performing – and we just got our hands on one.

Sigma 16mm F1.4 DC DN 'C': hands-on and additional details

Sigma has used the Photo Plus Expo show in New York as a launchpad for an all-new lens – the 16mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary. It's a fast, high-quality prime for cropped-sensor Sony E-mount and M43 cameras.

Hands-on with new Fujifilm X and GF lenses

We're at the Photo Plus Expo show in New York, where Fujifilm is showing off its new XF 80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR and GF 45mm F2.8 R WR prime lenses. Click through for a closer look.

Leica's 'new' Thambar-M 90mm F2.2 costs $325 per aperture blade

Leica's newest lens is one of its oldest. The Leica Thambar-M 90mm F2.2 is a (slightly) modernized recreation of a classic 1930s design, famed for its unique soft focus look. We just got our hands on one.
