With the Leica S (Type 007), Leica presents the new top model of the Leica S-System. As a logical development of its predecessors, the new Leica S features a multitude of radically new components – like the Leica CMOS sensor and the Leica Maestro II image processor – and now opens up new dimensions in the field of medium-format photography.

For the first time, the combination of the highest burst rate, extreme sensor sensitivity and comprehensive capture modes for still pictures – and now also video in exceptional quality – provides photographers with the opportunity to exploit the superior imaging capabilities of medium format for productions that demand maximum mobility and drive. The Leica S significantly accelerates and simplifies the photographic workflow with a multitude of features that are unique to medium-format photography – and some of them not only there. In addition to the new body, a new lens also expands the capabilities of the S-System. With regard to speed and imaging quality, the Leica Summicron-S 100 mm f/2 ASPH. telephoto portrait lens represents a new benchmark.

Medium format – reduced to the maximum


The Leica S-System was conceived from the ground up as a purely digital camera system and was built with the precise needs of professional photographers in mind. This meant that it was possible to create a camera system with a freely selectable format to enable an ideal symbiosis of excellent imaging quality and ideal handling. Perfect image quality has always been a good reason for choosing a Leica.
