Rate & Review


Developed exclusively for digital photography without any compromises. With the size and handling of a 35 mm camera, its performance and quality set new standards for medium-format photography. The complete Leica S-System was developed together with professional photographers with the goal of offering high quality pictures and effortless operation and handling.

The entire system is based on a totally new image sensor in Leica S-Format, 30 x 45 mm in size and the classic Leica aspect ration of 3 to 2. The large area and integrated design afford optimal picture quality. With 37.5 million pixels, cropping is never a problem, even for large-format prints.

The camera is the perfect instrument; the photographer can now focus on taking pictures rather than on the technology. The LEICA S2 components are the very best quality and finely tuned to one another, producing the perfect picture that is naturally sharp and does not require digital correction.

  • Larger-than-full-frame Image Sensor - The 37.5 megapixel image sensor of the Leica S2 is almost 60% larger than a 35mm full frame image sensor - putting the Leica S2 in a class by itself. It is also specially designed to take full advantage of the latest Leica S Series lenses.
  • Uses Leica S Lenses - Leica S lenses ensure that you'll always get a superior image - regardless of the shooting conditions. Because the lenses are designed with the S-System sensor in mind, your images will not exhibit vignetting or distortion whether you shoot close-up, tight zoom or at wide angle
  • Extensive Lens Choices - The Leica S-System lenses include Normal, Wide-angle, Telephoto and macro lenses that are suited for all sorts of photographic applications from detailed product shots, to travel photography to birding and much more
  • Precision AF System - The Auto Focus system in the S2 provides fast and accurate focus without the need for trial and error to get the perfect image - as is typical with other SLR AF systems
  • Dual Shutter System - The Focal plane shutter provides fast shutter speed capability of up to 1/4000 seconds while the central shutter incorporated into the lens system provides flash synchronization in any lighting mode - making the camera a superb studio imaging system.
  • MAESTRO Image Processor - The exclusive MAESTRO Image Processor uses dual processor chips to provide fast operation & shooting speeds, along with high ISO with negligible noise and a superb set of powerful shooting modes
  • High Resolution 3.0" LCD Display - The 3.0" LCD display on the back of the S2 has over 460,00 pixels for sharp and detailed images- making focus and composition confirmation easier than on most Digital SLR cameras and the LCD screen allows users to view images and data from wide viewing angle.
  • Bright & Clear Viewfinder - The Viewfinder of the Leica S2 is extremely bright and provides a host of shooting information indicators, in addition to a clear and precise image.
  • OLED Info Display - The camera has a full color Organic LED display on the top surface that is easily visible for any viewing angle, even in bright sunlight.
  • Compact Ergonomic Design - Lighter and smaller than most digital SLR cameras available today, the Leica S2 is extremely comfortable to handle and use.
  • Easy-to-use Camera Functions - The cameras menus and info displays are laid out in a logical manner providing for intuitive operation while the cameras 4-way controller and thumb wheel are well-placed for comfortable access to the camera controls.
  • Dust and Water Proof - Waterproof and dustproof seals cover every millimeter of the Leica S2 so you can shoot in bad weather or dry and dusty environments and still be assured that your camera will function to its optimum ability and provide stunning images.
  • Secure Interface Connection - The Leica S2 uses an exclusive LEMO Push-pull connector for its USB interface and also includes an HDMI video output and flash sync connection.
  • Dual Memory Card Slots - The Leica S2 has dual memory card slots - one is for CompactFlash Cards and the other is for Secure Digital (SD/SDHC) cards. This allows users to select between the two most popular memory card formats and take advantage of the unique features of both systems.
