Which Leica M

If the rumours are true then this month is when Leica will finally announce the new M rangefinder, and i’ll have a key decision to make.

Leica M4 35 Summicron, Fuji Superia – Time for Tea

Currently for my Leica shooting, I use a Leica M4 for film work (see the first two photographs), and a Leica M8 with the M8.2 updates and upgraded shutter for Leica digital work (see example shot three).

Leica M8

Once its announced I have to decide what I want to do.

As I have said before on this blog, I want a new M for full frame, better high ISO performance and live view for situations that require critical focusing.

  • New M10 (or what ever its going to be called)
  • M Type 262
  • M Type 240

The new M is likely to be at the top of my list and I expect it to tick all the boxes; the surprise for people is the Type 262, this is for some people a budget and cut down Type 240, it lacks live view, has no movie mode but is smaller, lighter and has a better shutter.  Last in my order of preference is the M240 or even the M240-P with the bigger buffer.  This again ticks all the boxes but is a heavier camera.
