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