The Leica CL Mirrorless Digital Camera

The Leica CL is a premium crop-frame mirrorless camera in Leica’s L-mount system. Key features include:

24MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and Maestro II Processor. The Leica CL’s 24 MP sensor and Maestro II processor combine to produce high-quality still images in a wide range of lighting conditions thanks to a 100-50,000 ISO range. You get a max 10 FPS continuous-shooting rate for up to 33 DNGs or 140 JPEGs, and you can capture UHD 4K video at 30 FPS, Full HD video at 60 FPS, and HD video at 30 FPS.

Leica L-Bayonet Mount. This camera’s mirrorless L-bayonet mount lets you use Leica’s SL-series and T-series L-mount lenses (not included), which boast the high quality you’d expect from lenses bearing the Leica name. The CL offers electronic communication with these lenses, so that you get fast autofocus, aperture control, and image stabilization. This camera doesn’t natively accept Leica M-mount lenses, but you can use the Leica M-Adapter-L for Leica TL/SL (not included) to adapt them.

Contrast-Detection Autofocus System. The on-sensor 49-point contrast-detection autofocus system ensures fast, accurate performance in a range of shooting conditions, but doesn’t have any sort of phase detection.

High-Quality Build, Minimalist Design. While image quality is obviously an important feature in a camera, the Leica CL’s build makes it unique. It has intuitive physical controls, and a large 3.0" 1.04m-dot LCD touchscreen that also lets you control a range of functions. The built-in 2.36 MP electronic viewfinder offers 0.74x magnification, 20mm adjustable +/-4 diopters, and an eye sensor for automatic switching, while the top status LCD lets you easily monitor shooting settings. The CL’s standard accessory shoe lets you attach an external flash, which is useful because this camera doesn’t have a built-in flash. Finally, its durable milled and anodized aluminum body has been designed to be easy on your fingers—a welcome feature on long shoots.

Other Notable Features. The Leica CL features cross-platform compatibility with Leica’s full-frame SL lenses. It has built-in IEEE 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity for image sharing, image transfer, and camera control from a smartphone or computer. Its BP-DC12 rechargeable lithium-ion battery is rated for about 220 shots per charge, and a USB Type-C port lets you charge the battery in-camera. Finally, the CL stores images to SD/SDHC/XC memory cards with full support for the faster UHS-II variety.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.
