Leica S3 - First Look
The Leica S3 is the latest edition of the S family of cameras. In 2019, I tested a pre-production prototype. This review is based on the use of this prototype.
I have been using the Leica S system since 2016. Prior to that most of my work was done with a 4x5 view camera. I have been so pleased with the Leica S that I almost do not miss the view camera. I have used Leica Typ 006 and Leica Typ 007; these cameras, along with Leica lenses, enable the photographer to concentrate on the work without thinking about the equipment. The resulting image quality is very high, while the effort of working with the equipment is very low. When a system works this well, how much can it be improved?
