Leica SL Typ 601 Firmware Update 3.1 Released

Leica SL Typ 601 Firmware Update 3.1 Released:

For those interested (I am for sure), Leica has released firmware update 3.1 for the Leica SL.  I find this firmware update particularly good because according to Leica, it’ll improve the image quality, and overall color balance of the jpegs.  Most importantly though (at least for me), it’ll improve the autofocus speed, and accuracy of the autofocus position of the Summilux-SL 50mm f/1.4 ASPH lens.  I haven’t tried it yet but you can bet I will right after I finish writing this little post up :).  The link to the firmware update is below:

On a side note, I really like what Leica has been doing in terms of the firmware updates for the SL.  Each update has actually been really useful, and makes the camera even better.  I absolutely love my 50mm Summilux-SL.  It’s my favorite lens from any manufacturer.  I was actually okay with the autofocus but hey, I’m not going to complain if Leica can speed it up ;).  So, thanks for stopping by, and for those who own the lens, feel free to drop me a message in the comment section to let me know what you think of the new update.

    All these updates reminds me of Fuji. You just expect things to get better and faster years into owning the gear.

      Hi Dane!

      Same here! The firmware updates for the SL are actually really good too. I feel they are better than the ones I received for my M9 and my M 240. The firmware before this one did a whole bunch of upgrades. It almost felt like a new camera lol :).
