Leica S3, Black with Leica Summarit-S 70mm F2.5 ASPH lens
Reignite your passion for photography with the Leica S.
The Leica S3 features a completely newly developed medium format 64MP CMOS sensor. The state of the art Leica Maestro II imaging processor provides an entirely new medium format experience in terms of superior imaging quality, speed and video capability. The fully integrated camera concept based on optics, mechanics, digital high tech and operating interface work in perfect harmony, delivering incomparable medium-format quality, paired with the iconic "Leica look".
The Medium Format Sensor
The S3 is fitted with a brand new sensor, developed in perfect harmony to the S lens range. With a 71% increase in resolution to its predecessor, the S3 sensor features:
New colour filters for finest true-to-life colour preproduction
No low pass filter for maximum detail and sharpness
Lower power consumption for reduced sensor heat
Faster readout rate for reduced rolling shutter times
Dual Gain Technology to allow for lower noise in higher ISO modes
A further highlight of the S-System is the central shutter. In contrast to a focal plane shutter with a maximum sync speed of 1/125s, a central shutter allows flash synchronisation even at its fastest shutter speed of 1/1000s. This offers considerably greater exposure leeway for creative photography, particularly when working with professional studio flash systems or shooting in bright ambient light.
The dynamic range of 15 f-stops and a maximum ISO sensitivity setting of 50000 provide sufficient reserves to be ready to handle any imaginable lighting situation and fully exploit the strengths of the medium format. Subjects can be composed in the large and bright SLR viewfinder, focused sharply with the fast and reliable autofocus and captured at a continuous shooting rate of three frames per second. In addition to all other essential exposure settings, an electronic levelling aid (horizon) can also be displayed in the viewfinder.
Video on the S3
The entire sensor can be used to record full HD and 4K (cinema resolution) video and the S3 will simultaneously record 48 kHz, 16-bit stereo sound through an internal microphone. External microphones may also be attached, and both automatic and manual level adjustments can be made. The LCD screen displays a Live-View image with a refresh rate of up to 60 fps is available in both still picture and video recording mode that also allows focus peaking, brightness and exposure data, a clipping warning, grids and a histogram to be superimposed onto the image.
The S3 features an integrated GPS function for geotagging images with precise geographical location and the exact time with the aid of satellites and an in-built WiFi system that allows you to connect the camera to the Leica FOTOS 2.0 app. The S3 can be remotely controlled through the app.

Leica SUMMARIT-S 70MM F2.5 ASPH (E82)
The high-performance standard lens
The Summarit 70 f/2.5 ASPH.(56 mm in 35 mm format) is suitable as a standard focal length for an enormous range of photographic situations and, thanks to its speed and superior imaging quality, masters them at all apertures and focusing distances.The use of aspherical surfaces to almost completely eliminate monochromatic aberration is unusual for this focal length and underlines the exceptional character of this lens.
The eight lens elements of the Summarit-S 70 f/2.5 ASPH are arranged in six groups. Two cemented elements made from glasses with high anomalous partial dispersion minimize chromatic aberration, while glasses with extremely high refractive indices and an aspherical element counteract monochromatic aberrations.The built-in front filter is an integral part of the optical design and provides optimum protection against dust and spray. In this design, focusing in combination with a floating element ensures excellent performance in the close focusing range.
Ideal Standard For All Photographer Needs
- High-performance standard lens with an angle of view equivalent to that of a 56 mm lens in 35 mm format.
- Innovative central shutter for maximum design freedom when using additional light.
- Excellent imaging performance over the entire range and at all aperture settings.
- Extremely fast.
- Creative use of sharpness and blurring for the plastic extraction of motif details.
- Best image quality up to the edges due to aspherical optics.
- Weather- and dust-sealed lens.
