L-MOUNT

Photokina September 2018. The Leica Camera AG, Panasonic and Sigma announced a strategic partnership. The “L-Mount Alliance”.

All customers of all three partners will benefit from it. Originally, only Leica offered bodies and lenses for their L-Mount lens mount. This changed now thanks to this cooperation from 2018 on going forward.

Apart from Leica also Sigma and Panasonic will offer from now on both, cameras and lenses for the L-MOUNT. This lens mount is suited for fullframe and APS-C sized sensors.

Since 2018 more partners joined the L-Mount alliance. As of 04/2024 Leica Camera, SIGMA, Panasonic, Ernst Leitz Wetzlar GmbH, DJI, ASTRODESIGN, SAMYANG und Blackmagic Design are alliance members and will offer lenses and cameras for this system.

We created an overview table with all lenses of the L-Mount partners currently available. You can search and sort in that table for specific lenses and compare them to each other. Just try it out.

This is only an overview about this new L-Mount alliance and its current status quo, because it is very hard to get these information on the official websites of the different companies. Some lenses are still not listed on the official websites, although already available in the stores.
