Leica M (Typ 262)

Leica makes the prettiest cameras around and its latest model is not an exception.  Mixing retro looks with current tech, the new Leica M (Typ 262) joins the previous Leica M, M-P (Typ 240) and M Monochrom (Typ 246) models.  Billed as one of the most compact full-frame system cameras available, the new camera is visually appealing and appears to be tough and well-built.

The Leica M (Typ 262) is not a super-camera.  Leica claims that the new camera offers only the most essential features in a camera with pure photography in mind.  This explains why the Leica M (Typ 262) misses a lot of key features.  It has no image stabilization, no integrated flash, and no video recording.

Inside the Leica M (Typ 262) is a 24-megapixel CMOS sensor and a Maestro image processor with maximum still image resolution of 5952 x 3976 pixels.  The compact shooter has an ISO range from 100 to 6400 and supports RAW files.  The camera packs a 3-inch fixed LCD with Gorilla Glass 3 reinforcement.

The Leica M (Typ 262) is priced at $5,195 USD.  This makes the camera an impractical choice for the budget-conscious hobbyists.  For those who love excellent pieces of hardware, however, the Leica M (Typ 262) can be a good addition to their collection.
