The new Leica M10 rangefinder represents the first overhaul of the company’s M-series cameras since 2009, when the M9 hit the consumer marketplace. While there have been a series of updates in the line based on the M9 platform, the camera has remained largely untouched.
The M10 introduces a new, old form factor—it’s the same width and depth as the Leica M-series of film cameras—an updated sensor and up to 5 fps shooting, thanks to a new processor. This update also gives the camera the ability to capture 30 RAW or 100 JPEG images before the buffer fills.
I’ve had a chance to shoot with the M10 for a few weeks, and my impressions of the system are largely favorable.
