Leica has released new firmware updates for the Leica SL2 and SL2-S cameras, bringing a host of improvements including the addition of 4K internal 10-bit recording (for the former) and autofocus refinements.

Firmware version 3.0 for the Leica SL2 mirrorless camera promises improved eye, face, head and body recognition and focus tracking, which will make it even easier to make sure your subject is sharp and in focus. Leica also announced that Enhanced Live View will benefit from better low light image composition control and will include an Image Overlay feature, which enables you to align the camera based on the position of the previous image.
