Leica has now dropped a bomb in the dlsr market. I don’t think anybody was expecting this. But Leica has now released info about the S – system. They are starting the system off with a medium format camera called Leica S2 and 9 new lenses.
The S2 has a 30x45mm CCD sensor boosting 37 megapixels. The new chip is 56% larger than a normal full frame sensor. This should give and improved image quality and lower noise.
New shutter system, the S2 is running a dual shutter system with a normal focal plane shutter as we now it from most dslr, but some of the new lenses will have a central shutter making faster flash sync possible.
