After unveiling its controversial M Edition 60 digital rangefinder with no LCD screen on back, Leica went further back in time this morning while debuting the M-A, a new, mechanical rangefinder that uses film.

Leica Camera just launched the new Leica M (Typ 262) digital rangefinder camera. Together with the Leica M (Typ 240), M-P (Typ 240) and the M Monochrom (Typ 246), this new camera rounds out Leica's digital rangefinder family.

Fans of Leica rangefinder cameras, and you know who you are, will welcome the CL as a harkening back to the original small format cameras designed by Oskar Barnack in the first part of the 20th century, including the requisite red dot.

With a design philosophy that less technology means more creative freedom, the eagerly anticipated Leica M–D camera is now a reality. The 24–megapixel camera harkens back to the limited edition M60 we reviewed a couple years ago and is the first full production model in the digital M line without a rear LCD monitor.

Leica has announced a new member of the Leica M rangefinder family with an "entry-level" price tag (for Leica cameras, that is): the Leica M-E (Typ 240).

Leica Camera unveiled its new Leica M Monochrom (Type 246), an updated version of the company's black-and-white-only digital rangefinder. Leica says the revamped M Monochrom is the first digital camera to capture a real black-and-white image (still or moving) without the aid of image processing or filtering.

Leica is going back to the future (again) with its newest digital rangefinder, the full frame, 24-megapixel M10. With this new model, which is the follow-up to the Leica M (Typ 240), Leica has trimmed the size of the M10, making it 4mm (1/8-inch) thinner than its predecessor. Part of that size reduction is due to the fact that Leica has gotten rid of the 1080p HD movie capture mode that was available on the previous model.

Leica just introduced the heavily rumored new Leica SL (Typ 601) mirrorless camera system, which includes a brand new “Leica L” lens and more dedicated full-frame glass to come in the near future. Leica has designed the SL to take on not just rival mirrorless cameras but to, potentially, lure pro DSLR users to switch to this high-end system, which combines what the company claims to be the fastest autofocus on the market with a speedy 11fps burst rate and 4K video capture.

The big news about the Leica M-D (Typ 262) is what it doesn’t have. It does not have autofocus. It does not provide through-the-lens viewing. And it’s not compatible with any zoom lens.

We were invited to an exclusive one-on-one unboxing of Leica’s latest collectors’ piece, the Leica M10 Edition Zagato, at Leica’s USA headquarters. Here is what we saw.

In this day and age of cross-type AF sensors and AF tracking in high-speed shooting modes, a rangefinder-focusing camera might well seem an anomaly, if not a downright anachronism. Indeed, manual focusing has in large part become vestigial among photographers and their ability to focus without AF has atrophied.

Leica just unveiled a new M-series digital camera, the M10-D. It’s an exciting blend of Leica’s oldest, most basic technology combined with today’s most modern, most advanced capabilities. It’s a camera with a dual personality, and although that’s not the meaning behind the “D” in its name, it very well could be. Shutterbug spent some time using an early sample before its release. Here’s the rundown on the new M10-D and a hands-on user report.

For more than 100 years, Leica cameras have been heralded as the most covert, inconspicuous image capturing instruments known to the world of photojournalism. Now Leica has introduced the Leica M10-P digital rangefinder, an ultra-stealth version of the M10 that ratchets up the very definition of candid photography.

The new Leica SL (Typ 601) is a brand new mirrorless system camera with a full frame sensor and a resolution of 24MP. The SL can't be described as a Compact System Camera because it has a very heavy and robust body built by a milling machine out of a massive aluminum block and is comparable to the size of a standard SLR system.
