Introducing the new Leica M10-P!

 

 

Leica Camera has released the Leica M10-P: an upgrade to the hugely successful M10 digital rangefinder.

Traditional “P” model styling cues are found on the Leica M10-P, along with a few great new features. The removal of the Leica red dot logo on the front of the camera and a classic Leica script engraving on the top plate are the main cosmetic changes. The big news is a redesigned mechanical shutter that is nearly silent, a touchscreen LCD for controlling playback and live view and integrated level gauge.

The Leica M10-P is priced at $7,995 ($700 more than the M10), comes in both black chrome and silver chrome and has already begun shipping in the USA. You can order yours today by giving us a call at 201-664-4113. We would be more than happy to help.

 

Leica Prices Increasing on May 1st!

 

On May 1, 2018 Leica is increasing prices on a wide range of products by an average of about 5%. Affected products include most M bodies (film and digital), nearly all M lenses, the black Q, TL2, S (Typ 007), many S lenses and a few other items (66 in total). To quote Leica “this revision is necessary due to the current exchange rates and the increase in raw materials and production costs.” This does make sense, as every year about this time we tend to see some increases, designed to reflect the ever-rising costs involved with manufacturing hand-built products from exotic, expensive materials.
 
There are no increases within the SL-system, and recently announced products such as the Thambar-M 90mm, Noctilux-M 75mm, and CL are not affected. If you were thinking about the M10, best to grab one before months’ end as the price is going up $400. The black Q sees an increase of $245 (making it the same price as the silver Q) and TL2 bodies go up $245 as well. If you have any questions feel free to call or stop by the store and we will be more than happy to help.

The new Leica M Monochrom “Stealth Edition”.

The new special edition of the Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) called the “Stealth Edition limited to only 125 worldwide! The camera was designed by Marcus Wainwright, the founder and CEO of the fashion label Rag & Bone. A fan of black-and-white photography — the Leica M Monochrom is a B&W-only camera — Wainwright wanted to emphasize the stealthy nature of shooting Leica cameras.

The Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) “Stealth Edition” features a matte black look over its entire body — even most of the standard white lettering on the buttons have been darkened. It also comes with a matching Summicron-M 35 mm f/2 ASPH lens.

This latest lens adds to the legacy of the Noctilux family, which was started by the introduction of the Leica Noctilux 50mm f/1.2 at Photokina back in 1966.

“All Noctilux-M lenses to this day are special for their rendering and aesthetic when shot wide-open, yielding a three-dimensional ‘pop’ that separates its subjects from the background like no other lenses,” Leica says. “The out-of-focus areas behind the subject is smooth and pleasing to the eye, giving a lovely soft background even in the darkest of lighting scenarios.”

 

The Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH features an even shallower depth of field than the modern Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 APSH. It has a close focusing distance of 0.85mm (~2.8 feet) and a reproduction ratio of 0.85mm.

Inside the lens is an 11-blade aperture that produces a pleasing bokeh in out of focus areas of photos.

 

On the front of the Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 is an integrated lens hood that can be extended or retracted by simply twisting the lens. There’s also a tripod adapter for mounting the lens onto a tripod.
