The APO-Telyt-M 135mm f/3.4 is the longest lens available for the Leica M system. It can be tricky to focus, but Live View makes it easier to use.
Compact. Very sharp. Apochromatic design. Longest focal length available for M system.
Expensive. Manual focus only. Limited close focus distance. Small frame lines with digital M cameras.
The Leica M is a large and robust rangefinder camera with a magnesium-alloy chassis with top and bottom covers cut from brass blocks. All elements are carefully sealed against dust and moisture and overall offers the handling, feel, and touch one has come to associate with Leica M cameras of the...
The 16MP Leica X2 features an APS-C format CMOS image sensor similar to professional cameras. The high-end sensor works hand-in-hand with the Leica Elmarit lens (24mm f/2.8 ASPH) in producing images with great quality. X2 features an enhanced autofocus system so it can adapt to different situations.
A Leica M with live view and video? Besser spät als nie.
No auto focus, no video, no live view... Das Wesentliche
Design, Purity, Exclusivity
NO TECH..., Which IS the point..., But still...
Overall the Leica M 240 is an inspiring camera to use, from the design of the body to the feel of its controls. With its new sensor and processor it also performs extremely well, and produces images that match the body for quality. Its menu system isn't the slickest though.
Features Handling Performance Verdict Specification Introduced at Photokina, Cologne, 2012, the Leica M (Typ 240) comes with a new 24 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, and surprisingly for Leica, also introduced full HD video recording, and live view.
Capable of resolving excellent levels of detail, Live view mode (first Digital Rangefinder), Full HD Video recording, Good white balance performance, 2 year warranty, Focus peaking, 3inch screen
Limited ISO range, maximum ISO6400, Metal surround on optical viewfinder, Moire visible, Price
The Leica M (Typ 240) is the camera that many a rangefinder photographer has been waiting for. It fixes many of the issues of previous models, but it doesn't come cheap.
Big, bright optical viewfinder. Large, high-contrast rangefinder focusing patch. Full-frame CMOS image sensor. Compact for a full-frame camera. Live view with focus peaking. Detailed images at every ISO. Impressive build quality. Sharp rear LCD. Resistant to dusts and splashes.
Very expensive. A little slow to start up. Manual focus only. 1080p video could be better. Odd auto ISO exposure issue.
Leica’s traditional approach to camera design means that its M-series of rangefinders are simple, basic machines that strip photography back to its fundamental principles, and Leica’s fans love them for that.
The best camera Leica M and lenses thus far if your going for that authentic film photography era look and feel. One thing about Using a Leica camera in the street, It is a risk it. The cost is way to high if damaged, stolen or whatever goes wrong. Leica needs to come up with a solution on the cost.
It is an interesting camera! My first M camera is M6 which I bought back in 1988, and since then I have probably gone forward to use almost every Leica introduced, and gone backward to use all the vintage models. And this M60 is like a compression of all Leica M put together.
With a superior price tag and inferior performance like this; it's no wonder Leica has been bankrupt for years now. If you've ever wondered how many stupid people there are on Earth, they all own a Leica.
For thirty years I used Leica cameras for research and travel in West Africa. I loved them because they were unobtrusive, dependable, durable, easy-to-use, and produced excellent images.
It's just different. Unique Camera from another planet.
Life is short, I used SLRs/DSLRs for 40 years but I never had a Leica. I had pretty much any Nikon DSLR both in FX & DX format. I do have the 4:3 format and the Nikon 1 and I like them all but my recent move to Leica should have been done earlier.
A little about me:I am a professional photographer working in fashion, beauty, product and portraiture. I use an Hasselblad for my work.I have been always fascinated by Leica's look and finally decided to buy one.
I use this for studio and landscape most.Quality! Quality! Quality!I waited it so long even after I was in the waiting list of BH.For leica, we never ignore its price.But it is worth. Every penny of it.
I loved my four Leica primes and that's where Leica really shines! The M that I owned was a bit of a disappointment in terms of keepers. I mastered the focus but the slightest movement handheld often killed the shot.
The Perfect Camera for someone who wish a Canon EOS Mark II on a Leica M body. Not for Me. I Traded it back for a Leica M9.
