The Leica S-System was conceived from the ground up as a purely digital camera system and was built with the precise needs of professional photographers in mind. It is the smallest medium-format camera and offers impressively easy handling, extreme robustness, excellent imaging quality and perfect matching of all its components.
Compact and functional in design and comparable in size to a 35 mm SLR, The Leica S-System with its innovative sensor format sets benchmark standards in the digital medium-format camera segment. Thanks to its user-friendly construction, it allows photographers to concentrate on the essentials of professional photography.
Lighter than other medium-format cameras, the Leica S also delights users with the superior grip of its rubber armouring. Handheld shooting for longer periods becomes a fatigue-free pleasure, not least because the intuitive handling concept puts all the controls at your fingertips. Its robust construction, including dust- and splash-proofing, lets it take every situation in its stride.
The lenses of the S-System, all constructed with the renowned Leica quality, were designed specifically for use on this digital camera. Thanks to an extensive range of lenses, the photographic potentials of the system are unlimited, even more so considering an adapter for Hasselblad H lenses as well as Contax 645 lenses is available. The central shutter option enables ultimate flexibility in the creative use of light.
