Leica has released the Q-P, a new model variant of the ever popular Q Typ 116. Taking the design cues from other “P” models of the past, the Leica Q-P features a “Stealth” matte black finish, no red Leica dot logo on the front, classic white engraved Leicascript on top, and red lens markings instead of the standard orange.
Besides the cosmetic changes, the shutter release button and on/off switch have been redesigned more in the line with the M and CL, resulting in more tactile feedback for improved feel and handling. Rounding out the package, the thin, stock black strap gets swapped out for wider, adjustable-length, brown leeather one, and Leica has included an extra battery in as well.
The Leica Q-P is shipping immediately with a price of $4,995.
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.
