Medium Format cameras, as we’ve often said before, are a totally different animal than your typical single lens reflex shooters. Leica’s new offering though, blurs the line between the two. The newest S-System Medium Format looks like a DSLR but underneath, it hides a Leica Pro Format sensor at a 37.5MP full resolution size. All the controls, ergonomics and the ability to replace lens quickly in a 35mm camera are aped in the S-System. This one even takes SD and CF cards, so you’re not limited to tethering the camera to a computer. Again, there’s a particular segment in the photography market targeted by this camera so needless to say, it’s not for everyone. It’s not cheap either. $TBA.
