Leica announced firmware update for Leica SL camera, but the firmware update looks secondary news because the Leica’s recent blockbuster is the announcement of their 50mm f/1.4 lens ASPH lens along with the firmware version 2.2. The newly announced lens is currently in the highlight due to its peak price, which means highly expensive lens has been announced at the list price US$5,300.
About the new firmware version 2.2— the version 2.2 now supports the new Windows version of Image Shuttle and allows users to control the camera over a USB 3.0 tethered connection, including controls over shutter speed, aperture, ISO and autofocus. Moreover, Leica SL firmware 2.2 also removes the shutter speed limitation when shooting with 6-bit coded Leica M lenses.
And about the new and expensive Leica-SL 50mm f/1.4 ASPH lens for SL camera– It offers very fast and sharp maximum aperture, plus the great solution for shooting in the lowlight area and provide incredible shallow depth of field. The lens is very nimble and effective in providing you instant and accurate autofocus.
