The Leica M, M-E and several other new Leica cameras are now available for pre-order at B&H. Check them out at the links below.
While the new Leica M cruises in at $7k for its full frame 24MP and 1080p video shooting, the Leica M-E isn’t quite the bargain basement price at $5450. But still, it’s a step down with an 18MP CCD sensor that is close to the same camera as the prior generation Leica M9.
The Leica M-E features a sensitivity range of ISO 160-2500, a 0.68x magnification viewfinder and a 230k-dot res 2.5″ LCD. The Leica M-E should be available packaged with Lightroom 4 later this month from Leica retailers. Check availability here at B&H Photo.
