Leica  have designed and constructed the world’s first camera ever to be machined from a single block of metal. The first camera ever with a body made completely from aluminium. An innovative and ground-breaking concept – the Unibody. Unique in design, quality, and finish. Sheer joy for the eyes and the sense of touch. Premium quality and ultimate precision. Silky-smooth matte finish and comfortable grip. With clear-cut lines and edges that underline the slim and stylish form of the Leica T. With its reassuring weight, and smooth ergonomic surfaces, the Leica T rests comfortably in your hands. Fantastic grip. Superbly robust. Only a few controls but lots of sheer delight. It is simply flawlessly beautiful. Compact and functional. Because beneath its solid, robust exterior, state-of-the-art technology finds perfect protection.

Four basic control elements and one touchscreen. The Leica T needs nothing else. When we designed the Leica T, we stopped leaving things out when there was nothing left that we could do without. The result: a camera that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. A camera you’ll be able to shoot with from the first moment on. A camera that adapts in an instant to any shooting situation. Thanks to the logical, intuitive,and ergonomic layout of its controls. Thanks to the quick change between automatic and manual modes. Never before has it been so easy to understand a camera. And use it. The Leica T is designed to let you enjoy your creative freedom to the fullest.

Although Leicareduced everything about the camerato the bare essentials, theystopped when theygot to the touchscreen display. In fact, the particularly generous proportions of the screen take up almost the entire back of the camera. To guarantee you complete control. Just by touching the screen. To focus on your subject and compose your picture. With your fingertip. To view and check your pictures. With exceptional dynamic range and the best detail rendition. In any light. Just as generous: the clear display and intuitive layout of the menu items. Precise and instant response at a touch. Everything you need at a glance. And everything under control.

The Leica T 18-56mm F3.5-5.6 Vario Elmar is a truly multitalented lens. Ideal for those moments when maximum flexibility counts. Ideal for experimenting with different perspectives and focal lengths. This compact standard zoom covers the most frequently used focal lengths with no need to change the lens. From 28 to 85 mm equivalent. For expansive landscapes, documentary pictures, and portraits. For detail shots and those Leica-typical pin-sharp subjects against wonderfully pleasing soft backgrounds. For sharpness, rich detail, and high contrast from corner to corner of every shot. Even in unfavourable lighting conditions. With our fastest and quietest autofocus. Simply perfect for discreet and unobtrusive photography. Simply carefree and spontaneous.
