Leica Digital M rangefinder cameras turn 10

The first Leica digital M camera has turned 10 years old, and to celebrate the company has introduced offers on some of its key digital rangefinders.

The Leica M8 was launched in 2006, which was followed by the Leica M9 in 2009, which was the first Leica rangefinder camera to feature a full-frame sensor. The current range of Leica digital M cameras includes

  • Leica M (Typ 240) – with a full-frame CMOS sensor, Live View and full HD video
  • Leica M-P (Typ 240) – includes a sapphire glass LCD screen cover, frame selection lever and 2GB buffer memory
  • Leica M (Typ 262) – omits Live View and video and concentrates on essential features
  • Leica M-D (Typ 262) – the digital rangefinder without a screen
  • Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) – features a black and white sensor for monochrome photography

What’s more, all Leica M-lenses that have been produced since 1954 can be used with all of the digital Leica M models. 

Leica UK is celebrating this anniversary with special promotions across the country at any authorised UK Leica System Dealer, Leica Boutique or Leica Store.

Photographers have the opportunity to trade in any camera (any brand) for a new Leica M (Typ 240), Leica M-P (Typ 240) or Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) and receive a special £500 bonus in addition to the value of the camera system traded in. 

Leica M (Typ 262) Entry Set Offer

 Alternatively, photographers can purchase a Leica M (Typ 262) camera body, Leica Summarit-M 50mm f/2.4 lens, Leica SF-40 flash unit and Leica Canvas System Case for £4,625.

All offers are subject to availability.
