Leica’s M series is one of the most heralded in all of photography. The Leica M10 Camera is the latest to join its ranks, offering a mix of old and new technologies that elevate it above the rest. For starters, its body is closer in size to that of the company’s film-based M-models, making it more comfortable to use. Likewise, it has manual controls for shutter speed, focus, aperture, and ISO value, a first for a digital M. Yet despite these old-school features, it has a number of advanced improvements. An all-new 24 megapixel CMOS sensor offers improved ISO sensitivity, dynamic range, and sharpness, the latter thanks to the omission of a low-pass filter. A current-generation Maestro II image processor makes it the fastest M ever made, integrated GPS and WiFi add modern conveniences, and the lack of a video mode means it’s even easier to get down to the business of making photos.
