LEICA-M-P-WINDOW-TEASER_teaser-1200x470

B&H has the new Leica M-P in stock and shipping. The Leica M-P features a 24MP full frame sensor. It also deletes the signature Leica red dot on the front of the camera in order to provide a more low-profile appearance for those shooting in public places. The Leica M-P is also weather-sealed and sports a new sapphire crystal screen protector to prevent scratches and cracks on the rear display. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

Leica M-E Unveiled as Lower Priced Rangefinder

Leica M-E

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.

Leica M is a Full Frame 24MP, $7K Rangefinder

Leica M

The Leica M is heir apparent to the Leica M9.  From this point forward, Leica is ditching the number system and simply calling new models the Leica M.

The Leica M features a 24MP full frame sensor and captures 1080/24p video.  The M offers a 3-inch, 920k-dot res LCD with Corning Gorilla Glass to add to the robust build.  In addition to video capture, this is the first M-model to sport live view on the LCD, as well as focus peaking.

The Leica M should be available in early 2013 for $6950.  Check availability here at B&H Photo.
