The Leica M-E Camera

The Leica M-E is the “entry-level” digital rangefinder from Leica. However, the only differences between the M-E and the M9 are the lack of a framing guideline switch and USB port on the M-E and the physical appearances of the two camera bodies.

The M-E still has the same 18.2MP, full-frame CCD sensor with no anti-aliasing filter, which provides images with maximum sharpness. The sensor utilizes a very advanced microlens system that helps to prevent light fall-off at the edges of the image due to the short flange back distance. It also has an advanced IR filter, so there’s no need for external IR filters.

The metal-leaf, focal-plane shutter provides very quiet operation due to its microprocessor-controlled design. The camera has a manual shutter-speed dial that offers a range of 1/4000–8 seconds, as well as a bulb and aperture-priority setting. The normal ISO sensitivity range is 160–2500, but can be extended down to ISO 80.

The M-E accepts all M-mount lenses, making it compatible with a long list of classic lenses. Those with “6-bit” encoding will allow the camera to automatically adjust for the vignetting effects of the particular lens. When lenses are not coded, you can set the lens using a simple menu function so the camera will adjust for the focal length and aperture being used.

It accepts SD/SDHC memory cards (not SDXC!) via its removable baseplate, which also exposes the battery compartment for the rechargeable lithium battery.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
