You can watch live event of Leica L-mount right now.
The image of two lenses on the front has the strapline “UNLIMITED”, whilst on the back there’s the instruction “For more information: www.l-mount.com”. This seems to strongly hint at the recent rumours of an official L-mount alliance between Leica, Panasonic and Sigma.
Leica have announced a major rewrite of their Leica Photo App for connecting your smartphone to your camera, which supports almost every model in their extensive line-up. Also, the Leica CL will be released in a classic Silver version.
The Leica S3 medium-format camera has now officially been announced with 64 megapixels, 3fps continuous shooting, optical viewfinder, and 4K DCI Cinema resolution video. The Leica S3 will launch in Spring 2019, with an early prototype on show at Photokina.
Five new SL lenses will be launched in 2019 and 2020 – the 35mm f/2, 50mm f/2, 28mm f/2, 24mm f/2 and 21mm f/2.
The L-mount alliance between Leica, Panasonic and Sigma is now official! All three have decided to implement the L-mount standard rather than develop their own proprietary system. Sigma were planning to develop their own 35mm full-frame mirrorless lens mount, but decided to join forces with Leica and Sigma. Leica and Sigma haven’t actually announced any new products, just their commitment to the L-mount standard.
