Leica T Typ 701 Aluminium (31)

A new firmware update for the Leica T camera system is now available that increases the speed of the Leica T and improves its entire performance.

Leica say the update will bring speed improvements to Live View mode as well as the camera’s autofocus and touch-screen control has also been optimised.

In addition, the firmware update expands the portfolio of Leica lenses that can be used on the Leica T. As the camera shares the same Leica L bayonet mount with the new Leica SL system camera, updating the firmware enables SL lenses to be used with the T body. The Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90 mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. will be available from 16 November 2015 and further SL-System lenses, including the Leica APO-Vario-Elmarit-SL 90-280 mm f/2.8-4 and the Leica Summilux-SL 50mm f/1.4 ASPH., will follow next year.

Customers can now download the new version 1.4 firmware from the Leica website. Alternatively, the update can be carried out as part of a complementary service at Leica Customer Care and Leica Stores.


New T camera system lenses

In 2016, Leica will launch a further two new lenses for the Leica T camera system. As the Leica T and Leica SL share the same L bayonet mount, this will be indicated by the designation ‘TL’ on all new Leica T lenses. The Leica Summilux-TL 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. (SRP £1,350 including VAT) is scheduled to be available in Spring 2016 and will be joined by the Leica APO-Macro-Elmarit-TL 60 mm f/2.8 ASPH. in Autumn of the same year. Together with the existing Leica Summicron-T 23 mm f/2 ASPH., this completes the trio of Leica T camera system prime lenses. The Leica Summilux-TL 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. is also available for the first time with either a black or silver finish.
