Leica M Typ 240 update

Review by Stuart
Bought the Leica M in Oct 2013 and initially slightly underwhelmed (maybe the price!) but now I find it delivers great pictures consistently with very few quirks! It still needs a couple of seconds to wake up but by anticipating this it's not a problem. Software updates have eliminated the freeze ups and image quality is outstanding! Coupled with good Leica glass colour rendition, sharpness, out of focus bokeh and general quality are exceptional! Wilkinson's customer service is also excellent so go for it- if you can cope with rangefinder focusing you won't be disappointed! (Posted on 23/02/2015)

Great camera or keep your M9?

Review by Sportbackstu
Well, supplies are finally arriving in UK. Is it the best ever digital Leica? Probably, but only up to a point! It's got more megapixels than the M9 (but will you notice?), it's got a bigger rear screen than the M9 (very welcome), it's got a faster processor than the M9 (but will you notice?). LIve view and video are irrelevant for most Leica users and it still has some frustrating quirks that you don't quite expect. For example, start up is relatively slow (slower than M9) and it has an occasional tendency to freeze up which can only be rectified by taking out the battery and starting again! Still, you can use all that lovely Leica glass (including R lenses) and results are very good but not spectacular (skin tones, for example, are too warm because of white balance issues). It's a firmware update short of being excellent so is just plain very good for now. Is it worth £5K- only you can answer that! (Posted on 18/10/2013)

Leica M Typ 240 Digital Body Black 10770

The new Leica M is the most innovative and versatile M-Camera that the modern M-System has ever created.

It unites decades of experience in rangefinder technology with groundbreaking digital technologies: It features a completely newly developed high-resolution full-format CMOS sensor that, in combination with its high-performance processor and the legendary M-Lenses, delivers outstanding imaging results. With Live View, video, and new additional focusing methods, it is also the M for photographers who do not wish to miss out on any of what modern digital technology has to offer.

  • Leica Max 24 MP Sensor for maximum imaging quality

    The Leica M features a completely newly designed high-resolution, 24 megapixel CMOS sensor in full 35 mm format. The combination of the camera’s image processor and this Leica Max 24 MP sensor guarantees outstanding imaging quality. Its intelligent design and flat pixel architecture enables each individual pixel to gather a particularly large amount of light. This results in images characterised by superior sharpness and maximum spatial resolution. The new M delivers extremely low-noise and richly detailed images, even at higher sensitivities of up to ISO 6400. And now, thanks to the 1080 pixel, full-HD video capability of the Leica M, the impressive imaging quality is available for moving pictures, too.

    The new CMOS sensor is designed and constructed for the use of both Leica M and R lenses on the Leica M. Because, with the new Leica R-Adapter M, almost all Leica-R legacy lenses can be used on the Leica M expanding the options of the Leica M into the world of Leica R photography.

    Fast Leica Maestro image processor

    In conjunction with the new sensor, the Leica Maestro processor lets the Leica M set entirely new standards in terms of image-processing speed. It processes the image data arriving from the sensor and transforms them into visible images at extremely high speeds and can also perform even the most complex processing steps very fast. Thanks to the energy-efficient imaging electronics of the processor and sensor, a single charge of the Leica M’s new 1800 mAh lithium-ion battery can last an extremely long time.

    Universal capabilities with Live View and the electronic viewfinder

    The new Leica M is the first ever M to feature Live View and Live View Focusing. This means that now, for the first time, images can be composed using the actual image produced by the lens – with complete control of depth of field, exposure, precise framing and focusing. Its large, high-resolution 3" monitor allows precise assessment of the subject seen through the lens. This opens up entirely new opportunities for M-Photographers that previously lay far beyond the limitations of rangefinder photography, like macro and telephoto exposures, or using the monitor as a viewfinder.

    Live View can be used with both M and R lenses. Indirectly, it also enables owners of R lenses to use the optional Visoflex EVF2 electronic viewfinder. The Leica M can be used with an R-Adapter, R-Lenses and a viewfinder exactly like an SLR, without using the monitor.

    Splash-proof camera body

    Thanks to the many years of experience gathered by our engineers in the construction of camera bodies, the new Leica M is built without compromise for maximum stability and perfect sealing. Its top and base plates are machined from solid brass, and its full-metal body is manufactured in one piece from high-strength magnesium alloy. Specially designed rubber seals protect the camera body against dust and water spray. The glass covering plate of its high-resolution monitor screen is manufactured from particularly tough and scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® glass. All this makes the Leica M particularly resilient and helps guarantee it a long and reliable working life.
