The Leica S-System is a synthesis of impressive imaging quality, the unique visual signature of medium format photography and the versatility of a 35mm camera. With these features, it unites the best of both worlds, defining a unique class of its own.
This unique class can be attributed to the perfect harmonisation of all of its individual components: with lenses created of unrivalled Leica quality for all applications and genres of photography and a large sensor developed exclusively for Leica in the unique Leica ProFormat. The S-System leads the way in terms of resolution and dynamic range and delivers a level of performance that is still apparent even in available light situations. Its precision-engineered, ultra-high-speed shutter mechanisms, a special image processor and predictive autofocus enable fast sequential shooting, thus combining the unique image quality of the larger format with the fast responses of a 35mm camera.

Leica ProFormat Medium format – redefined
The strengths of the Leica ProFormat lie in the optimum balance of picture quality and creative potential. With a sensor surface area more than 50% larger than traditional 35mm format, the cameras of the S-System achieve best picture quality and the characteristic look of medium format photography. A previously unparalleled tonal range and ISO values up to 50000 enable the production of professional results in any situation.
Built to last
When it comes to the everyday work of professional photographers, reliability is no less important than image quality and handling. With the S-System, high-quality materials, carefully selected components and an exceptionally sophisticated construction ensure that cameras and lenses alike can be relied on to do their job for many years, withstanding the day-to-day demands of professional photography and harsh conditions.
