Leica’s SL lenses with L-Mount bayonets were originally designed for the SL full-frame mirrorless camera. Before the launch of the followup SL2 camera, the L-Mount Alliance was announced. This alliance saw Sigma and Panasonic adopt the Leica L-Mount for their forthcoming full-frame mirrorless cameras and lenses, which greatly increases the number of lenses that are available for Leica SL series cameras.

The following table contains the specifications for all of Leica’s own L-Mount lenses. This is a modest range of lenses but it covers a range of 16-280mm. Of course, thanks to the L-Mount Alliance, Leica SL users can also use L-Mount lenses from Panasonic and Sigma on their cameras, greatly increasing their choice and price options.

If you are unfamiliar with the names and nomenclature that Leica use for their lenses, I suggest you also read our previous article entitled Leica Lens Terminology and Abbreviations.

Leica SL Lens Data Table

Table Notes

  • The data in the tables can be re-sorted using the arrows in the header. For example, you could sort by lens weight, focal length or release date.
  • Displaying large data tables on mobile devices is tricky. If you are viewing this on a phone, you can touch and scroll horizontally through the additional columns in the table. You’ll also have a better experience if you turn your phone horizontally.
