Leica M10 further refines rangefinders for the digital age


— 3:30 PM on January 18, 2017

Mirrorless cameras may be all the rage in digital photography right now, but Leica has been cranking out shots without the benefit of a reflex mirror for the better part of 100 years. Its latest M rangefinder, the M10, slims down to the same 33.75-mm depth as the Leica M4 film camera of the 1960s, and it gives photographers more direct control with a dedicated ISO dial on its top plate.

The M10 also boasts an improved 24-MP full-frame sensor with a maximum ISO sensitivity of 50,000. Leica claims this sensor deals better with light arriving at extreme angles relative to the sensor plane, a move that might reduce color shifts at the edges of images captured with extreme wide-angle lenses. Finally, the M10 has integrated Wi-Fi for transferring images to iOS devices (an Android app is apparently coming soon). The rangefinder faithful can pre-order an M10 now for $6,595 in chrome or black finishes.
