Leica MP review | Børge Indergaard

Mechanical Perfection. That’s what the MP abbreviation means according to Leica. Is the MP labeling just marketing, or is there some truth to it? Is it really mechanical perfection? For about a year now, I’ve been using the Leica MP as my go-to camera. During that year I’ve shot about 120 rolls of film. That’s not a lot for a year, but I’ve also been using a Leica M240, Fujifilm X100T, Sony RX100M3 and a Hasselblad 501cm during that year. But my primary go-to camera for  shooting has always been the MP, simply because it’s my most inspiring and fun to use camera. The MP I have is a standard production model in black paint. I purchased mine as a demo-model, but it had never been used. It had only been showcased in a glass shelf at a photography exhibition and then it was put straight back into its retail box. This saved me about $1000 off the new price! I purchased mine from Ken Hansen in NYC. He often has good Leica deals available. I recommend checking with him if you’re looking for new or old Leica gear…….

Why I (Still) Love Leica | Leicaphilia

In a world where most manufacturers have abandoned all-metal construction and favor automated assembly, Leica M bodies and lenses continue to push the envelope of supremely compact, superbly constructed, photographic tools. Their newest optical offerings, the 24/1.4 and 28/1.4, continue the tradition of cost-is-no-object over-the-top excellence for which Leica is known. You have to pay through the nose for it, yes, but a Leica product is always going to be as good as it gets; certainly its never going to be just average, or worse, mediocre. Leica’s philosophy of cost-is-no-object excellence may not be compatible with your wallet, but it’s consistent with its history, where no compromise excellence has always been the guiding principle……..

Leica M 240 Review | Street Frame

Congratulations Mr. Coleman… It’s a Leica M 240! I can’t tell you how much I’ve craved this moment, how many times I’ve googled reviews, searched Flickr for examples of this cameras pictures, researched ISO performance, all the while wondering if I’d ever get one. The wait is over, I am now the proud father, erm I mean owner of the Leica M. Let me take you back a little, my first foray into the Leica world came a year ago when I purchased an M6. In all honesty I’d got fed up with autofocus, auto ISO and just about every other feature of modern technology that the digital world of photography had thrown at me. I’d turned into a robot, wandering the streets clicking away, shooting from the hip, of the various cameras I own. They all performed well, but I felt I was missing making a picture and was just taking a picture…….

Feeling good: Leica M-240 acclimatisation | Andrew Tobin

While online reviews of the Leica M-240 are numerous as it has been out for a while now, I always struggled to find anything that gave me an insight into how it feels to get to know the camera. I’m not so interested in the number of pixels or sensor type these days as so many digital cameras are brilliant technologically. What’s really important to me is whether I actually enjoy using a camera, as that enjoyment translates into putting more effort into taking/creating worthwhile images. Having to struggle with a clumsy interface or imprecise controls spoils the whole experience of photography for me. When I was shooting sport professionally, the tools for the job, generally 2 or 3 Canon 1D bodies, were honed to the task after years of tweaking, updating and feedback from pro photographers worldwide……..

Banging the drum for the M262: Leica’s new M9 |
Michael Evans

The Leica M Type 262 represents a welcome return to purity in M photography and it deserves to be the most popular model in the range. It has been described as a “stripped-down” M but this is a rather simplistic verdict. In reality, the 262 loses nothing that the typical rangefinder user wants or needs in a camera. So far, it is the nearest we have come to a digital version of a Leica film camera since the M9 and is all the better for it. Rather than being a stripped-down M240, the M262 is in reality a stepped-up M9. It is an M9, characterised by the stepped top plate, brought up to date and furnished with a CMOS sensor and a usable screen. It is the camera the M240 should have been……

Fabio Bucciarelli – The Dream | LFI Blog

Many people suffer, but some suffer more than others.

Freedom and democracy, the end of a dictatorship and hope for the future are the reasons at the root of many revolutions. Revolutions are fierce processes that force millions of people to leave their homeland. Revolutions are also slow processes, so much so, that people end up forgetting the reasons why they even started; and, as soon as they are over, as soon as the interest of the media vanishes, they not only leave death and destruction behind, but also a huge number of people, casualties of a war they never wanted…….

Leica M262 Review (Leica M Typ 262) | Jim Arnold

On November 19 Leica introduced the M Typ 262, the successor the the Leica M-E, which was really an M9 minus the frame line preview lever and USB port. The M262, however, is based on the M240. Leica was also able to hit the $5,000 price point. I’m a proponent of renting big-ticket items to test before buying. Renting a 35/1.4 Canon L lens convinced my I didn’t need or want it. Renting a Leica M-E had the opposite effect. You can read my thoughts on why I use rangefinder camera. Despite the limited high ISO capabilities and dismal 230k dot LCD screen of the M9, the M-E was my first foray into the digital M’s, having used film M’s going back to the 1980’s. It was a fun camera to use and got me into a digital Leica M at an incredibly affordable price compared to an M9 when it was launched. I made more “keeper” images with my M-E in the 2 years I used it than I had with my DSLR in previous years. It was like using a classic film M again……..

Die neue Leica M Monochrom | Roman Tripler

Für viele Fotografen ist es schon ein wunderbares Gefühl, eine Leica in der Hand zu halten, geschweige denn, dauerhaft eine benutzen zu können oder gar zu besitzen. Bei allem Für und Wider zum Thema Preis vs. Leistung besitzt Leica eine Art gepachtete Magie wie kaum eine andere Marke in allen mir bekannten Branchen. Mit viel Mühe habe ich mir vor einigen Jahren diesen Traum mit einer M9P erfüllen können und durfte nun sogar ausgiebig das aktuelle Schwarzweiß-Topmodell testen. Es gibt mittlerweile etliche Tests, in denen die Funktionen und Fähigkeiten dieser Kamera ausgiebig untersucht, beschrieben und verglichen wurden. Wie aber verhält die MM sich, wenn sie nicht unter Laborbedingungen geprüft wird? Wie lässt es sich mit ihr real arbeiten, wenn die Bedingungen mal nicht optimal sind? ……

Leica M (Typ 262) – Reduction to Rangefinder Photography
(at 1000 € less) | Leica Blog

What about the rumors that the Leica SL is the death knell for the Leica M System? Or about the next Leica M having an electronical viewfinder? Only a month later the Leica M (Typ 262) proves the opposite. The Leica M262 is no successor to the Leica M240 but reduces to the essential, in this case to the rangefinder photography. New to Leica: Even the price was reduced… In a nutshell: The Leica M (Typ 262) lacks live view and video functionality but costs 1000€ less than the Leica M240…….
