Leica is answering the demand for a full-frame, interchangeable mirrorless camera with the Leica SL. The company is targeting professionals with a 24 megapixel full-frame sensor to get those big, beautiful shots and that Leica image quality you know and love. 

Performance was a big focus in the development of the SL as Leica has made sure to have some of the fastest auto-focus speeds on the market as well as the highest resolution EVF available, 11 fps burst shots, and 4K video. 

Other specs to note are the dual SD slots, 2GB of RAM, ISO sensitivity up to 50,000, a 1/8000 shutter speed, and a highly-resistant milled aluminum body. As for lenses, Leica's new SL mount will launch with three: a 24-90mm, 90-280mm, and a 50mm. You can also use the company's vast selection of existing lenses via adapters for their M-Mount, S-Mount, and R-Mount lenses. 

$7,450 (body only), Leica
