Leica announces a new compact digital camera, the Leica D-Lux 8, launching 2nd July 2024

The hotly anticipated Leica D-Lux 8 has finally been announced by the brand, and this new compact digital camera brings the Leica experience to a more accessible form (and price point). The controls have been simplified and ergonomically repositioned, and the user interface takes after the user-friendly one used in Leica Q cameras.

The camera features a 4/3″ CMOS sensor offering 22MP (effective 17MP), and a fast Leica DC Vario-Summilux 10.9—34 f/1.7—2.8 ASPH lens (35mm camera equivalent to 24—75mm).

It connects to the Leica FOTOS app, has an included flash like previous models, and is also the first D-Lux to offer the DNG file format.

Leica will also be releasing a range of compatible accessories for the D-Lux 8, including a hand grip, carrying straps, wrist straps, leather covers in various colours, an automatic lens cap, soft release buttons and a range of bags.

The Leica D-Lux 8 retails at $2,450 and is available at official Leica Singapore Stores, the Leica ONLINE STORE, and authorised dealers starting 2nd July 2024.
