Leica SL2 gets silver makeover

Posted on Jul 13, 2023

The high-end full-frame camera is now available with a timeless, minimalist design

The luxury photo brand has whipped the cover off a new silver variant of its SL2 camera. The aptly named Leica SL2 Silver maintains the same spec as the existing black model, with a 47-megapixel CMOS sensor and up to ISO 50,000 equivalent, but has been given a makeover inspired by Leica’s silver M and R ranges. 

That means we get a silver anodised top-plate and baseplate, matched with black leather. While the body-only price is £6200, a couple of lens kits are also being made available. These add a Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70mm f/2.8 ASPH lens for £7920, or the Noctilux-M50 f/1.2 ASPH and the M-Adapter-L for £12,100. The advantage here for photographers with deeper pockets is that all M-Lenses can then be used with the SL-System camera.
