Leica sets the bar even higher this week as they announced their mirror-less interchangeable lens in the new T-System with auto focus. The new Leica T is still as beautiful as older Leica models, but finally incorporates a more innovative and more intuitive image quality that matches all but the best mirror-less cameras now on the market. It’s two new lenses feature an amazing 16.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, at an 18-56mm F3.5-5.6 and a 35mm equivalent 23mm F2 prime. Going further, each has a shutter with a maximum speed of 1/4000 of a second and an ISO range of 100-12500. Leica is also promising a 11-23mm F3.5-4.5 wide-angle zoom and 55-135mm F3.5-4.5 tele-zoom lens too.
The body of each Leica T is cut from a solid block of aluminum and features a user-friendly touch screen, and an optional electronic viewfinder with a built-in GPS and Wi-Fi. The camera body alone (available in black or silver) is priced at $1850. As far as the lenses go, the 16-56mm F3.5-5.6 zoom costs $1750, while the 23mm F2 prime is set a bit higher at $1950. Leica prices stay high, but are worth every penny, every time. C
