Leica M (Typ 240) Camera Body - Black Paint

Maximum image quality

Superior sharpness and the finest reproduction of detail. The Leica M features a newly-designed, high resolution, 24-Megapixel CMOS sensor in full 35 mm format – the Leica Max 24-MP sensor. When combined with the Leica Maestro image processor, only outstanding images are created. Additionally, the low noise performance makes the M ideal for available-light photography.

Sharp images guaranteed

The classic rangefinder system offers fast, precise, crystal-clear focusing with superior accuracy. Two additional focusing methods allow for even more creativity. The new “Live View Zoom” enables up to 10A-magnification of the Live View display, and the “Live View Focus Peaking” automatically highlights sharp contours in red to provide simple focus control.

Motion pictures with Leica look

The unique quality of Leica lenses has been expanded into the 1080p, full-HD video recording feature of the Leica M. Complete control over exposure and capture settings enables photographers to complement their still images with professional video recordings, with the same look and quality inherent to Leica photography.

Faster results

The combination of the Leica Max 24-MP sensor and Leica’s Maestro processor allows for an extremely high image-processing speed. A low buffer time lets you take photos in rapid succession, not missing a single shot. The processor’s several independent segments permit an incoming image to be processed while a previous one is still being written on the memory card.

Universal capabilities

The new Leica M is the first to feature Live View. Images are composed from material produced by the lens, granting you complete control over depth of field, exposure, framing and focusing. The M’s large, high-resolution 3" monitor with 920,000 pixels allows precise assessment of each potential image with regard to sharpness, exposure and colour.

Use in any weather conditions

Our cameras are built to last a lifetime. Solid brass blanks and full-metal bodies from high-strength magnesium alloy and scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla® Glass make bodies and screens resistant to life’s little tumbles. Specially designed rubber seals protect the cameras from splashes, moisture, dust and uncooperative weather.

For long-endurance missions

Leica M’s new lithium-ion battery (1800 mAh) is high performance and rechargeable, ensuring that you are comfortably prepared for long shoots. One single charge guarantees a large number of exposures, which makes the M perfect for shooting in remote locations.

Ergonomic handling

The Leica M combines the traditionally valued photographic functions of the M-System with state-of-the-art ergonomic features. With an ergonomically-positioned control wheel on the top plate, intuitive menu navigation and a newly-designed and user-friendly menu interface on the rear monitor, the photographer can concentrate on what’s essential – the images.

Compatibility with Leica R-Lenses

The Leica M can take full advantage of almost all lenses in the Leica R-Lenses series, thanks to the new, state-of-the-art Leica R-Adapter. This extensive lens range includes various wide-angle, telephoto and macro lenses as well as a selection of zooms.
