Leica M10-D

 

Leica continues its LCD-free rangefinder camera series with the M10-D, which adds a faux film advance lever to completely sell its retro look.

Bright optical viewfinder. Legacy lens compatibility. Quiet shutter. 24MP full-frame sensor. Dust- and splash-resistant body. Works with add-on EVF. Real leather body cover. Wi-Fi.

Very niche appeal. Omits video.

Bottom Line: Leica continues its LCD-free rangefinder camera series with the M10-D, which adds a faux film advance lever to completely sell its retro look.

Leica M10-P

 

The Leica M10-P camera is a more discrete version of the M10, with less obvious branding, a quieter shutter, and a new touch LCD.

Big, bright optical viewfinder with focusing patch. Compatible with lenses dating back to the 1930s. Very quiet focal plane shutter. 24MP full-frame image sensor. Dust- and splash-resistant build. Add-on EVF available. Wi-Fi.

Expensive. Rangefinders are not for everyone. No video recording. No Android support for Wi-Fi.

Bottom Line: The Leica M10-P is a more discrete version of the M10, with less obvious branding, a quieter shutter, and a new touch LCD.

Leica stifles the M10-P's shutter sound for stealth

 

The quietest you can get without resorting to electronic shutter.

Leica M10

 

The Leica M10 camera improves upon its predecessor, upping performance and slimming down the body. It's a solid, albeit pricey, choice for rangefinder devotees.

Optical viewfinder. Rangefinder manual focus. 24MP full-frame image sensor. 4.8fps image capture. Crisp rear display. Integrated Wi-Fi. Dust- and splash-resistant design. Add-on EVF available.

Very expensive. Manual focus isn't for everyone. Omits video.

The M10 isn't as drastic of an upgrade as the M (Typ 240) was the M9. While the camera has a new image sensor with a much greater ISO range, it doesn't offer an increase in overall resolution. The same is true for the rear LCD and Live View...

Leica rewards the faithful with the M10 (hands-on)

 

The design and feature set of the company's latest full-frame rangefinder comes from the wish lists of its pickiest users, right down to shaving 4 mm off the depth of the camera.

The M U want: Leica M10 First Impressions Review and Samples

 

Leica's latest rangefinder dispenses with the last-generation 'Typ' naming convention and goes back to its M-series roots. The M10 is slimmed down, sped up, and after using one for a few days, we like it. Read more

Shooting with the Leica M10 for the past few days has been a lot of fun, but every good conclusion should include some criticisms, and inevitably, there are several things about the M10 that I don’t like.
