New firmware updates released for Leica SL cameras

Today Leica released new firmware updates for three Leica SL cameras:

Additional information is available on Reddotforum:

SL2 / SL2-S version 5.2.0 Improvements

  • BP-SCL6 Support: The biggest feature in the new firmware is official support of the latest BP-SCL6 battery. Introduced with the Q3, the new BP-SCL6 offers 18% greater capacity at 2200mAh than the original BP-SCL4. While the newer battery seemed to work fine in SL2 cameras prior to the update, official support means more accurate battery life indication and greater stability.
  • Limitation for Higher Current Consumption Lenses Removed
  • New M Lenses 6-Bit Code Support: With more 6-bit codes and lens correction profiles, the SL2 and SL2-S will work with all the latest M lens offerings from Leica, including the recent 50mm Summilux-M ASPH II, which was introduced after the last firmware update.
  • Misc Bug Fixes

SL (Typ 601) version 4.0 Improvements

  • Profoto Remote Flash Control Support: Already present on the newer SL2 and SL2-S, the SL601 can now natively use Profoto remote flash systems. Nice to see Leica continuing to add functionality to previous generation cameras.
  • New M Lenses 6-Bit Code Support: The SL601 gets the same additional M lens support as the SL2 and SL2-S
