Leica has already released two new cameras in 2020: the Leica M10 Monochrom and the Leica M10-R. It is said that the German imaging brand will later launch the Leica Q2 Monochrom camera. The Q2 Monochrom camera model is expected to have the nature of Leica M10 Monochrom, which means that the camera will only click black and white images.
Now, according to the latest reports, the company may also announce the Leica SL2-S in a couple of months. The alleged Leica SL2-S could be the successor to the Leica SL2 which was launched almost a year ago in November 2019.
When the Leica SL2 was unveiled by the company, many users claimed that the company copied the Panasonic S1R datasheet. Features such as a 47 megapixel sensor, maximum burst of 20 fps, 4K / 60p video recording capabilities and fullHD 180p have been borrowed from the S1R camera model for the Leica SL2.
This time around, it is suspected that Leica may be taking away some features from the latest Panasonic Lumix S5. As Digital Camera World notes, Leica has a history of reloading Panasonic cameras. For example, Leica V-Lux 5 looks like Panasonic FZ1000 with a red dot on the front and Leica D-Lux 7 looks like Panasonic LX100 II.
While it’s still a theory and nothing comes as an official statement, we expect the Leica SL2-S to be a compact camera to keep up with trends. Currently, most camera manufacturers are opting for lightweight cameras to grab the attention of digital content creators.
According to the latest reports, Leica could announce in a couple of months the Leica SL2-S, which could be the successor of the Leica SL2.
