The Leica SL is Leica’s first foray into a fully modern interchangeable lens mirrorless camera. Related products fall short of the fully modernized digital approach:
- The Leica M240 is a hybrid rangefinder + optional (and low-res) EVF system in which the rangefinder lenses for the most part are not optimized for digital.
- The Leica S is a DSLR lacking an EVF option (2015 model does have Live View finally).
- The Leica Q has a fixed lens.
As of May 2016, there were only two native mount lenses: the Leica 24-90mm f/2.8-4 Vario-Elmarit-SL ASPH zoom lens and the Leica APO-Vario-Elmarit-SL 90-280mm f/2.8-4.
