      Leica TL2 is the next version of Leica T (type 701) which was presented in the middle of 2014.

      The camera has been equipped with a new improved 24Mp CMOS sensor, which is 8Mp bigger than its predecessor. What's more, the sensor is supported by a newer generation processor Maestro II, thanks to which the camera should be faster and more efficient. The ISO range is 100-5000, which is a huge improvement when compared to the predecessor which enabled us to take photographs with the maximum ISO sensitivity of 12500.

      It is also worth mentioning that the new Leica camera gives a possibility of recording films in 4K, with the maximum speed of 30f/s.

      When it comes to shutter speed, in the new model it enables us to take photographs with the speed of 7f/s, and if we use the electronic shutter – up to 20f/s.

      The autofocus is based on contrast detection and has 49 AF points. In the newest model, it is supposed to adjust focus with the speed up to 165m/s.

      When it comes to design, the new camera is slightly different than its predecessor. The whole back panel is 3.7'' LCD touch screen, without any buttons. TL2 also has a more profiled handle, which should influence the handle's reliability in a positive way. The camera's menu has also undergone some changes – it is supposed to be more user-friendly now. In addition, Leica TL2 has 32GB of built-in memory.

      Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art is yet another Sigma lens presented today. This lens is certainly the most awaited one from the whole series presented today.
       
      Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art has chances of becoming the most popular lens from Art series on the market for full-frame sensors. It is so because the focal range of 24-70mm works perfectly in almost every kind of reportage. What is more, this lens will also have an attractive price compared to the Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR lens.
       

      1). Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art
       
      New Sigma 24-70mm has an optical system built on the basis of 19 lenses placed in 14 groups, where 4 elements are aspherical lenses, and three are made of low-dispersion glass, which is, according to the producer, going to positively influence image quality.
      The front lens is covered with a special protective layer, which is to make cleaning easier and ensure that dust, water, and dirt will not easily rest on the lens. The lens will also have a stabilization system.
       

      2). Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art
       
      The new lens is also equipped with a quiet, ultrasonic HSM autofocus motor, which is to be 30% faster than its predecessor. The lens will also be compatible with the USB Dock personalizing device.

      Apart from that, the lens has a compact construction in comparison to its systemic equivalents (88x107.6mm). It also has basic weather sealings.

      Unfortunately, the price and the date of appearing on the market, as in the case of other lenses having their premiere today, is not known yet.

      Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art is yet another Sigma lens which is having its premiere today. This model is dedicated for the photographers specializing in portraits as well as street photographers. As the producer assures, the presented lens will guarantee high image sharpness already from the maximum aperture of f/1.8. Thanks to this, it will enable work even in very hard lighting conditions.
       

      1). Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art
       
      The lens consists of 13 lenses placed in 10 groups. Two of them are SLD lenses, and another two are FLD elements. Their role is to minimalize chromatic aberration.
       

      2). Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art - Construction
       
      As in the case of other lenses, the ultrasonic HSM motor will be responsible for adjusting focus. Apart from that, the AF drive doesn’t have classic mechanical connections – such a construction will enable the use of manual focus without a need to switch to the MF mode.
       

      3). Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art
       
      The lens is sealed, and compatible with the USB Dock station.
       

      4). Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art with Sigma SD Quadro H
       
      Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art will be available with the Canon, Nikon, and Sigma mounts. Thanks to an adapter, we will also be able to mount it to Sony cameras. As for now, the producer hasn’t revealed the new model’s price or the exact date of its appearance on the market.
