The long wait might soon be over, as Leica looks set to announce the Leica SL3 early next year.

The Leica SL3 has been rumored for some time (see our Leica rumors hub), with many expecting the camera this year. However, it looks as though the successor to the much-loved Leica SL2 will be released in the first quarter of 2024, with a new high-end camera being registered in China. The Leica SL range is a high-end full-frame camera range that is currently made up of the Leica SL2 and the Leica SL2-S, two of the best Leica cameras available by offering great stills and video performance.
