Leica S2 – First Look At The Sleek, 37.5 Megapixel, Handmade Prototype

First introduced at Photokina this year, the Leica-S2, came to the PDN/PhotoPlus Expo, where we were able to get our hands on it.
Holy Moley.
Even in it’s handmade prototype form (there maybe 2 of these in existence) the brilliant, clean design, made the crowds drool. With a massive sensor and on-board processor, this medium format, pro camera, had a perfect balance in the shooting position, although we only handled it with the normal 70mm lens.
should be available summer 2009.
We have a tour of the camera, with Maike Harberts, Product Manager from Leica. Pay close attention to the info screen as it may be a harbinger of things to come in the industry.

Although some folks felt that Leica was lagging a bit in the digital category, this entry should quell those non believers.
Maybe they just looked at the price tag.
Priced for the pro market, this should be available Summer 2009.
We’re thinking about a rental when it’s available.
