Leica has unveiled its new mirrorless camera, the Leica TL – price tag £1,450 / $1,695 – which offers a number of improvements over its predecessor, the Leica T.

Chief among the new Leica camera’s features is a revamped autofocus system, particularly in AF-C mode.

Inside the camera, the Leica TL offers a 16-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, and a boost in internal storage from 16GB to 32GB.

Leica has also expanded the TL’s compatibility to include lenses from other camera systems in the Leica range. The Leica TL now supports SL-Lenses with OIS and allows the use of Leica R-System lenses in combination with the R-Adapter L.

The TL-System currently comprises six lenses: the Leica Summicron-TL 23mm f/2 ASPH. and Summilux-TL 35mm f/1.4 ASPH., the APO-Macro-Elmarit-TL 60mm f/2.8 ASPH., Leica Super-Vario-Elmar-TL 11–23mm f/3.5–4.5 ASPH., Vario-Elmar-TL 18–56mm f/3.5–5.6 ASPH. and APO-Vario-Elmar-TL 55–135mm f/3.5–4.5 ASPH.

What’s more, a new Leica TL app for Android and iOS allows users to share images via email or social media.

Other features on the Leica TL spec sheet include built-in WiFi, raw capture, full HD video recording, 5fps continuous shooting, a 3.7in touchscreen LCD and a native ISO range from 100 to 12,500.

The Leica TL will be available in silver, black and titanium.
