The Leica S2 is one of the biggest innovations in Leica history. It is a completely new system built from scratch, it is medium format, it is 100% digital and it has autofocus and a new range of lenses! The prototype was announced in September 2008, and now the S2 is a real camera, and it is going to be on the market in December 2009. Thanks to Polyphoto, the Italian importer of Leica, I tried this fascinating camera and and I have had the opportunity to publish review and samples!
NOTE: the body I have tested is still a pre-production unit, so when it will be available on the market there may be improvements (in particular in low light performance). I'll try to test a production unit as soon as it is available.
