The super TL2 was introduced in 1975. During its three years of production, 15.000 bodies were manufactured. Its name suggests it to be the successor of the very successful super TL. While put in a newly designed body with a steel-bladed shutter, it in fact mirrors the super TL’s specifications. Most likely the model was produced to use up existing stocks of older parts. In order to warrant a low sticker price, specifications were basic. The camera lacked a 1/1000 sec shutter speed and self-timer. TTL-metering was triggered by a key located near the shutter release, using the stopped down aperture method.
