Leica has this week taken the wraps of their new T System lenses and camera the form of the Leica T Typ 701 which is equipped with a number of new features which have been added to a Lecia camera for the first time.
The Leica T Typ 701 camera Is fitted with a 3.7-inch, 1.3 million dot touchscreen on the rear, allowing users to easily navigate the camera’s features and options whilst taking photographs.
Leica has also made their Leica T Typ 701 camera the very first in their range of mirrorless cameras that does not involve a rangefinder, and the first Lecia interchangeable lens system sporting an APS-C sensor.
The Leica T Typ 701 camera is part of the T System that incorporates two lenses, a 35mm-equivalent f/2 prime lens and a 27-84mm-equivalent f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens. However the camera and the two lenses will not be sold as a bundle and instead each needs to be purchased separately.
