Leica CL, black
Made for every moment.
Light, compact and always with you.
No matter where the opportunity arises - the Leica CL is ready and fast enough to capture every moment.
Made for the best images
With a 24 megapixel sensor, a fast autofocus and shooting up to 10 frames per second, the Leica CL delivers pristine image quality. And with its high resolution EyeRes® viewfinder, no moment passes unnoticed.
Made for the world’s best lenses
Leica lenses portray reality in every detail - no matter if the photographer is working at the wide angle or telephoto position.
The compact size of every lens supports the portability of the Leica CL System.
Made for the future
The iconic design of the Leica CL has been proven for more than 100 years and enables full concentration on the image.
The L-Mount guides this concept into the future and provides compatibility with countless Leica and third-party-lenses.
Made to share
Thanks to the easy connection to the Leica FOTOS App, images can be transferred instantly from the camera to the smartphone, to share them via Social Media.
Masterpieces of optical design
The exceptional imaging performance of Leica lenses has evolved from more than 150 years of experience in the development of precision optical instruments.
The lenses for the APS-C System are naturally also characterised by our dedication to optical perfection.
A new era of creative freedom
The L-Mount marks the start of a new era of lens compatibility without compromise. Never before has one lens mount standard allowed for an almost limitless array of options in combining different interchangeable lenses with cameras featuring different sensor formats.
With the alliance between Leica Camera, Panasonic and Sigma, a combined 250 years of experience in the field of lens and camera construction will be consolidated in one platform. For the photographer, this opens up the chance to compile endless variations of camera-lens combinations from the extensive product portfolios of all three manufacturers, and so continually find the best solution for any photographic situation.
