The camera, of course, does not have much in common with the old constructions - it is actually, generally speaking, Leica M10 without a display. The camera's user can, of course, regulate the shutter, aperture, sensitivity and exposition compensation time - all of these (and other) activities can be made with the use of analog knobs. But in the twenty-first century not everything can be made in an analog way. M10-D is equipped with the advanced wireless functions. 1). Leica M10-D + Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH The camera can be controlled remotely with the use of the "Fotos" (iOS, Android) application. There, we can also manage the recorded material.

On board, we will find the 24MP CMOS sensor with the ISO sensitivity range of 100 - 50000, the Maestro II processor, the 2GB buffer and the range-finder viewfinder with automatic parallax correction. In the continuous shooting mode, the camera will take 5 photographs per second and they can be saved on SDHC cards with the capacity up to 32GB or SDXC with the capacity up to 2TB. 3).

Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 with Leica M10 The lens is supposed to ensure a significantly more shallow depth of field than Noktilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH, which is a remarkable achievement.

    Leica CL Announcement

    Despite the fact that the latest Leika CL had its premiere more than a week ago, it’s definitely worth mentioning. This camera proves that the German producer of photographic equipment is still treating the sector of APS-C cameras very seriously. Leica CL is, above all, very ergonomic, which makes the camera very convenient. The camera is equipped with the 24-Mp CMOS sensor, supported by the latest image processor Maestro II, which should enable us to take photographs within the ISO range of 100 – 50000, with the speed up to 10 f/s. Apart from that, the camera is equipped with a shutter, which should enable work with the speed of up to 1/8000 s or 1/25000 s in the electronic mode, and the 49-point phase-detection autofocus. 1). Leica CL We also have a built-in electronic viewfinder with the resolution of 2.36Mp, and two control knobs on the upper panel, which will enable us to quickly control the parameters of the aperture, shutter time, ISO sensitivity and control exposure compensation. The knobs are the pressing ones, enabling us to control two parameters at the same time. A very convenient function is a miniature supporting LCD screen, on which we can quickly see currently used settings. 2). Leica CL The battery will enable us to take 220 photographs on a single charge, which is not the best result. The whole body is made of aluminum and magnesium alloys. The lenses from the TL system as well as the lenses from the M and R systems (through a dedicated adapter) can be connected to the camera. 3).

    Leica Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 APSH Announcement

    Today, Leica presented a new wide-angle lens with the equivalent of 27mm, developing a bit a humble, as for now, Leica TL system. Leica Elmarit-TL 18 mm f/2.8 APSH, as this is the full name of the new lens, is going to be the widest lens of the system. The lens will also be very compact – it has the dimensions of 21x62mm and it weighs 80g so it’s going to be a great companion in reportage photography. 1). Leica Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 APSH and Leica CL The optical system of the new lens has been built on the basis of 8 lenses placed in 6 groups, among which we have 4 aspheric lenses, which are to guarantee good resolution, both in the centre and on the edges of the frame.

Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S Apart from that, the new lens is equipped with the POWER O.I.S optical stabilization system and sealings, which should protect the lens from dust and splashes.

Filters with the diameter of 77mm can be used on the front lens. 2). Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S The lens will cost $2999. It is to appear on sale in January 2018.
