Some people say that if Oskar Barnack were to build a camera today, it would have the APS-C format.

The new Leica CL is the deliberate transfer of traditional values from patience, persistence and craftsmanship into the fast and modern world we live in. A companion. So compact and discrete that it fits in every hand and finds a place in every heart.

Image quality

It is agile, technically top notch, mechanically precise and represents a flexible APS-C System that meets every skill on eye level intuitively to make excellent image quality accessible.

EyeRes® Viewfinder

With a resolution of 2.36 million dots, the integrated electronic viewfinder of the Leica CL gives you complete control of composition and framing, in every situation.


With its archetypal design, the compact Leica CL sets a new milestone in the more than 100-year history of Leica camera development.

Handling concept

The Leica CL is an intuitive tool. All these controls are located in positions that enable photographs to be made without taking the camera away from the eye.


So compact and discrete, it fits in every hand. And in every heart.


The integrated Wi-Fi module of your Leica CL enables wireless transfer of pictures to smartphones, tablets or computers
