Leica CL/TL interview: TL, CL and lens development continues


Recap of the Reddotforum's interview with Maike Harberts from Leica on the Leica CL and future of APS-C:

  • Leica TL and CL development is still ongoing (for both lines): "It’s not TL2 versus CL. It’s TL2 and CL. They’re not competitors. They’re siblings. They have the same blood. Same mother and father."
  • On a potential Leica X3: "There is always a possibility, but the CL is almost the same size as the X2. The Q is now the large sensor compact camera. The APS cameras paved the way the Q. The X cameras had the sexy form factor, and were the first large sensor compact cameras when we launched the original X1 in 2009. We launched the 18mm quite deliberately in order to create an “X3”. With the pancake lens on the CL, it is almost the same dimensions, and becomes a pocket camera."
  • On new TL lenses: "There are of course spots in the lens portfolio. The development is not over."
