Leica TL camera price drop, new model expected to be announced in July


Some updates on the current and upcoming Leica TL cameras:

  • The price of the latest Leica TL model has dropped to $1,495
  • The Leica TL Titanium is still listed as discontinued at B&H
  • The new TL camera will have a 24MP sensor and will be much faster compared to the current TL
  • The new TL was initially rumored to have a built-in EVF, but this may not be the case
  • The official announcement is expected to be before September - most likely in July
  • Price: around $2,500
  • The new Leica TL camera has already been registered with different government agencies under the code name 5370

Leica is rumored to announce also another camera in October, but I do not have any additional information yet.
