Leica launches M-E (Typ 240)

The M-E (Typ 240) is Leica’s new entry-level M rangefinder and features a 24-megapixel CMOS sensor and Leica Maestro processor.

Leica says it has also updated the M-E with a new 2GB buffer for longer and more sustained burst shooting than is possible with the Leica M (Typ 240). This pushes continuous shooting up to 3fps.

Leica has also given the M-E (Typ 240) a new 3-inch, 920k-dot rear display, and users can also now shoot video. However, video resolution is limited to Full HD.

The new Leica camera replaces the M-E (Typ 220) launched back in 2017.

The body design boasts a new anthracite-gray lacquered finish, with a leather covering.

The Leica M-E (Typ 240) will be available from July 25 at Leica Stores, Boutiques and Dealers.
