Today, we received our first shipment of the new Leica S-Case, designed by Leica to fit the entire Leica S-System securely and make it easy to transport. The generous new owner of the case allowed me to open it up and check it out, and I am impressed! The case comfortably holds just about every S-related item one might need on a shoot, and then some.
The Leica S Case provides space for the following products:
• 1 Leica S-Camera Body
• 1 Leica Multifunction Handgrip S
• 1 Leica Summarit-S 35mm/f 2.5 ASPH
• 1 Leica Elmarit-S 30mm/f2.8 ASPH
• 1 Leica Summarit-S 70mm/f2.5 ASPH
• 1 Leica Apo-Macro-Summarit-S 120mm/f2.5
• 1 Leica Apo-Elmar-S 180mm/f3.5
• 1 Quick Charger
• 1 Professional Battery Charger S
• USB-Cable S
• Focusing Screen S
• 2 x Battery S
• 1 X Remote Release Cable S
The case by itself weighs 12 pounds, and fully loaded with a body, five lenses, and all the accessories it weighs in at 30 pounds. Not bad considering what is inside, and the large rubber handle combined with sturdy wheels make it easy to travel with. It comes new in its own box, and a nifty guide that shows you exactly where each item belongs:
It is very easy to slide lenses in and out, they fit snugly and remove easily thanks to two small notches around the lens where you can grasp it with your fingers (for the 120mm and 180mm, which do not have rectangular hoods). The top half of the case has matching cutouts that assure the lenses do not move around during transport. There is a section underneath the slot for the pro charger which can hold either a USB tethering cord, or any other accessory you might need to carry along that does not have its own designated slot.
With the case empty, you can see the various slots along with cutouts on the top section which assure a secure fit. And a cool Leica logo!
We will definitely be adding this case to our demo inventory. Not only does it allow us to safely travel with the entire system (which we often do) it makes shipping our system for test drives that much easier.
