Leica S2 will be Available in October for $26,000/£16,000

Yes, Leica’s long-time-coming S2 DSLR is about to hit the stores in two months time. So mark your calendars, Leicaholics! But since it is Leica, it also costs a bundle – $26,000/£16,000 [body only]. A bank account-emptying gadget, don’t you think? And that’s not even the top-end version. If you want to get the S2-P, which adds a sapphire glass monitor screen and “Platinum Service” support package, you have to pay out an extra £3,100 or almost $5,100. If you thought Nikon’s $1800 D300S was expensive, how about this latest gadget that starts over a million?Leica S2Designed for professional users, the Leica S2 with its premium AF objectives including everything from ultra wide to super telephoto is an absolute photographic highlight. With a custom 37.5-megapixel, 30 x 45mm sensor that is 56% larger than full frame, the S2 establishes parameters of imaging excellence that are well beyond those obtainable by conventional pro-caliber DSLRs. It uses the typical 3:2 aspect ratio that corresponds to the human field of vision and is widely acclaimed as the “Leica Format.”

Additionally, it incorporates an innovative dual shutter system with in-body focal-plane shutter for fast lenses and in-lens shutters for high flash sync speeds, an ultra-high-precision auto-focusing system, a new series of lenses designed for the highest possible performance, and a Maestro image processing system that offers twice the speed of comparable medium-format backs, reduces power consumption, and provides in-camera JPEG capability.
