The Leica M Typ 240 Camera

The Leica M (Typ 240) Digital Rangefinder Camera is designed around a 24 MP Full-Frame CMOS sensor and Leica MAESTRO processor and boasts features such as a 3.0", 920,000 pixel LCD, Live View capabilities with 10x zoom and focus peaking, and a ISO range up to 6400. Additionally, now available for the first time ever in the M series is 1080p full-HD video, with rangefinder or Live View focusing. Its maximum ISO level of 6400 provides low-light shooting capabilities that were previously not possible with digital color Leica M cameras.

Passed down from previous generations of the M-series, the Leica M has a metal body, with a leatherette grip, and the infamous Leica red dot, now rubber sealed for light weather resistance against dust and water splash. The camera has Leica’s standard rangefinder-coupled viewfinder, and accepts nearly all M-mount manual focus lenses. The Leica M is powered by a new 1800 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery allowing for longer battery life than previous models, and records images to SDHC/SDXC memory cards. Images are recorded in either Adobe DNG RAW files or JPG, allowing the flexibility to use nearly any editing software.

Roger's Take

First and foremost, let’s be very clear: I am not a rangefinder shooter and certainly not a rangefinder reviewer. But I’m more excited than most people about the new Leica M (Typ 240) camera for one simple reason. It has live view and focus peaking so at long last I can, if I want, actually focus a Leica camera. (I have a vision problem that prevents me from focusing a rangefinder accurately.)

But like a lot of people I viewed Leica’s move to a CMOS sensor, rather than the CCD used in the Leica M9 and Leica M-E cameras, with a bit of trepidation. That 18-megapixel CCD had more resolution than one would expect from an 18-megapixel camera. Despite the sensors many limitations, I was concerned that a ‘modern’ 24-megapixel CMOS sensor might actually be a step backward on the resolution front. But for any of you who were, like me, a bit hesitant about the new sensor, it’s really good. Judging by what real reviewers like Steve Huff, Ming Thein, and Sean Reid are saying and showing, this is rather redundant anyway. The images are awesome.
