Back in 2006 Leica took its first leap from film to digital with the M series and the M8. Since then there have been many refinements to this popular series, culminating in the M240, Leica’s first full-frame CMOS sensor incorporating full HD video.

With the ability to use both M series lenses and also R series through the use of Leica’s M to R adapter & EVF-2 electronic viewfinder, the choice and diversity of lenses available each offers truly tremendous scope for creativity.

Offering a 24 megapixel sensor, quieter shutter operation than previous models, improved battery life and weather-sealed casing, the M240 offers both enthusiasts and professionals alike the chance to capture that perfect moment in time.


Born from a tradition of innovation
The new Leica M is the most innovative and versatile M-Camera ever created. It unites decades of experience in rangefinder technology with groundbreaking digital technology. It features a completely newly developed high-resolution full-format CMOS sensor that, in combination with its high-performance processor and the legendary M-Lenses, delivers outstanding imaging results. With Live View, video, and new additional focusing capabilities, this is the perfect camera for photographers who do not wish to miss out on any of the fantastic benefits modern digital technology has to offer.

Leica Max 24 MP Sensor for maximum imaging quality 
The Leica M features a completely redesigned high-resolution, 24 megapixel CMOS sensor in full 35 mm format. The combination of the camera’s image processor and the Leica Max 24 MP sensor guarantees outstanding imaging quality. Its intelligent design and flat pixel architecture enables each individual pixel to gather a particularly large amount of light. This results in images characterised by superior sharpness and maximum spatial resolution. The new M series delivers extremely low-noise and richly detailed images, even at higher sensitivities of up to ISO 6400. And now, thanks to the 1080 pixels capability, full-HD video of the Leica M, this impressive imaging quality is now available for video imagery too.

Fast Leica Maestro image processor 
In conjunction with the new sensor, the Leica Maestro processor lets the Leica M set entirely new standards in terms of image-processing speed. It processes the image data arriving from the sensor and transforms it into visible images at extremely high speeds while performing even the most complex processing steps. Add extended battery life thanks to the new Leica M’s 1800 mAh li-ion battery, universal capabilities with Live View, and the electronic viewfinder, and what more could you want?

Universal capabilities with Live View and the electronic viewfinder 
The new Leica M is the first ever M series camera to feature Live View and Live View Focusing. This means that images can now comprise the actual image produced by the lens – with complete control of depth of field, exposure, precise framing and focusing. Its large, high-resolution 3" monitor allows precise assessment of the subject seen through the lens. This opens up entirely new opportunities extending far beyond the limitations of rangefinder photography, like macro and telephoto exposures, or using the monitor display as a viewfinder.

Live View can be used with both M and R lenses, while owners of R lenses can now use the optional Visoflex EVF2 electronic viewfinder, adapting the camera for use exactly like an SLR, without using the monitor.

Upper Normandy revisited - Magnum photographer Jean Gaumy returns to his roots 
Instead of travelling through distant countries searching for images, globetrotting Magnum photographer Jean Gaumy captured impressions of his native region Upper Normandy – for Leica. With the new Leica M in his luggage, he has created an intensely personal ‘photo diary’ that provides an informal, almost intimate, view of this coastal region and its inhabitants.

Splash-proof camera body
Thanks to the many years of experience gathered by their engineers in the construction of camera bodies, the new Leica M is built without compromise to provide you with superb camera which offers maximum stability with perfect sealing. Its top and base plates are machined from solid brass, and its full-metal body is manufactured in one piece from high-strength magnesium alloy. Specially designed rubber seals protect the camera body against dust and water spray. The glass covering plate of its high-resolution monitor screen is manufactured from particularly tough scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla glass.
Combine superb craftsmanship with exceptional attention to detail and it is no wonder that the result is a camera designed to last and to capture images of the very highest quality.
