Also, several Leica M-mount lenses are available at $250 off this week. Check them all out here at B&H Photo.
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.
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.
