Photokina 2016: Leica Sofort & Leica SL Lenses

Leica has announced the new instant camera Leica Sofort and the new lenses for the SL Typ 601 camera. They will probably be:

  • SUMMICRON-SL 35mm
  • APO-SUMMICRON-SL 75mm
  • APO-SUMMICRON-SL 90mm
  • SUPER-VARIO-ELMAR-SL 16-35mm

There are demo units of the Summilux-SL 50/1.4 shown in the Photokina 2016. We have tested a bit about the lens. The focusing is a little slow compared to the other SL lenses, maybe it was because of the firmware compatibility issue or it is still in testing period. We have also seen the SL handgrip now with extra battery to fit in.

The new Leica Sofort will come in 3 colors, and also come with a Monochrome Black&White film!!
