We’ve been waiting almost four years for a new M, but yesterday Leica delivered. The M10 is the new rangefinder flagship from our German friends. I haven’t had the chance to try it, but I’ve heard I will be able soon. So far, things look good. The M10 has been put on a strict diet and it has paid off.
I’m very curious about the implementation of live view, considering that this was laggy in the M240. So far, the only one that has mentioned this is Steve Huff. He estimates the live view to be twice as fast as the M240.
Another major thing is the rendering of the new sensor in the M. A couple of photographers have used the new M10 and you can check the pictures here. I must say that I like the images of Maik Scharfscheer most, although they’re slightly over edited for my taste.
It doesn’t make much sense to say something about a camera that I’ve never used – I’ll leave that to others – so, I’ll let you know when I get my hands on one of these…
