Leica SL2 manual

The Leica SL2 will always be a niche camera sold in small numbers to connoisseurs and a certain type of discerning pro. It incorporates a level of design and thought that is actually rather inspiring. The SL2 is an update to the original Leica SL camera launched in 2015. Its performance is excellent, as you’d expect, but its design and interface are practically in a class of their own.

Getting the most out of your Leica mirrorless camera requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
