cgarrard: I know Voigtlander have stated they don't want to make a digital rangefinder because they don't want to take away from Leica sales. We'll, I hope after this announcement they consider making a digital RD-2 with a full frame sensor. Someone needs to make a good, minimalist rangefinder and Voigtlander would be the company to do it. Now more than ever, they should absolutely go for it. Pixii and others will invade the Leica market, it might as well be a company with some class that can make a true beautiful rangefinder for photographers who appreciate the analog and classic experience. Voigtlander, PLEASE make one.

Carl, this is not the analogue camera in its soul; analogue cameras were independent devices. This is a sort of digital invalid, a wheelchair digital camera with an extra prosthetics, and that requires another digital device even to start working properly. I thought the CL was bad (I saw it, handled it with different lenses, it's confusing as hell and not good at all), but this is even worse.

BlanksMcgee: Hopefully the sales of Leica Mp's will increase!

You can't capture *that* decisive moment otherwise. You must have a Leica M and a 50mm Noctilux.

I would give this camera thumbs up, but one will be busy holding that thick bottom plate under which one card slot is hidden, and the other will be busy sweeping and cocking the fake film advance lever.

ClassicPhotoLearner: I for one like the shutter lever-like thumbrest. I actually wrote to Leica 10 years ago requesting something similar. It helps one to hold a camera so much much more securely such that I would not mind using a wriststeap. I appreciated it when I had a RD-1. I hope this becomes a regular feature in all future Ms.

The no LCD screen does seem like a pretense although we don't know how the app works. I would not buy one without a LCD unless it is much cheaper, like the Pixii. Certainly not at a premium.

Still, if there are buyers and Leica can sell it to make a profit, I don't begrudge them.

Such comments are incredible. Did you notice that the M10 already HAS a thumb rest? This is not a Leica of a decade ago, which did not have any thumb rest whatsoever. The M10 has it. And this variation of the M10 has a thumb rest, and also a freakin' advance lever for what .. "extra thumb rest" above the real thumb rest?! Do you need two thumb rests?

Zvonimir Tosic: Advance level actually hurts. It is not good "thumb rest" because it never was! It is supposed to be cocked in a fraction of a second and then left alone. If it was intended as a "thumb rest" then it had to be redesigned from the grounds up.
I hope they have implemented some camera function to it, although I am lost as to what can be done with it really well. Any sort of "advance" to the next exposure is a horrible thought, and advance to the next value of some parameter is pointless too because the advance is unidirectional. For eV compensation, etc. it would only cycle through them all, which is a waste of time. And the camera already has eV comp wheel on the back and the ISO dial.
It could be used for switching between camera settings if the number of settings is 2 or 3. By "the setting" I mean particular ISO, metering mode, colour mode, eV comp, drive mode, etc, all stored under one setting.
Or, use it as a crank to power the dynamo inside camera which charges the battery. 😃

Yes, original M10 is a well-designed camera. But this "advance lever rest" ... not only is totally useless, but it is an insult to film cameras.

Zvonimir Tosic: Yes, manager's comment about Pentax Q was biased and ignorant. In their own time, Ricoh sold more Q cameras and lenses with Pentax name on them in two years than what Fujifilm will sell with their entire assortment in six years. The Q has been amongst the top mirrorless sellers, which Fujifilm never was, or will. Pentax Q worked perfectly off the first bat, but it takes Fujifilm 2-3 generations of each camera to smooth the things out. Fujifilm has always been and remained a company of wishful thinking.

Yes, Japan. It was selling madly in days when cameras sold well generally speaking.

DPR loves doing this; every now and then they open the doors for the FFox to enter the yard FFul of otherwise happy hens.

photofisher: How about a rugged waterproof GR

Put a sticker with large "GR" written on it over the "WG-60" letters above, and you have it. Similarly, you can transform Lada into a Mercedes or a BMW, with a little extra cost.

ybizzle: Ricoh/Pentax really need to come out with something to excite customers. This is nice but hardly exciting or innovative, Remember when Ricoh thought out of the box and released the GX-R? Those were the days...

The secret of theirs is not in the excitement of the new, but in the new appreciation of the old.

User9362470513: My first camera was a Ricoh in the early 90s so I hope they survive. I wonder what the market is for this sort of camera. I would imagine Go Pro and it's cheap clones have cornered the market with waterproof housings etc.

I think they will stay around because they do not treat their cameras as business at all. They treat it as some sort of heritage, a hobby, and running it as a museum. Every 4-6 years there will be a new exhibit in the museum, like the GR camera, or this sneaker sole camera above.

On article Leica M10-D sample gallery (22 comments in total)

Obviously, the photographer was a bit afraid. The output is expected, but that small Kodak Ektachrome gallery .. boy, it changed everything. Not even M10 results compare to it ...

Lord Lucan: Solution for Advance Lever: Ask Leica to engrave your name on it.

Use it as a crank to power the dynamo inside the camera, which helps charge the battery.

M10, on which this model is based, already has a thumb rest and same design of the body is used for this model too. Why was an advance lever *really* needed?

Photoman: Kodak: We will never give up film!

@D_Gunmann, Fujifilm is slashing its film business with katana sword, never caring one iota how that influences worldwide film market. Kodak on the other hand tries to reintroduce films and reinvigorate the market.

Toads, is that kind of commitment possible without asking one's spinning instructor first? I mean, if you do it, your spinning instructor would be, like, "Blah, blah, blah, who is going to spin with that", and your life coach would be, like, "Aaaa".

DuxX: Okay that's your decision. I'll never go with system with smaller sensor than FF because I want better image quality and don't care about smaller and lighter lens or bodies - that's my decision. Fortunately for all of us, every photographer can choose system according to his needs. Different manufacturers with different offerings for all of us. Beauty of modern age ;)

@racin06, if you want better IQ, read books. About photography.
