R for resolution – the Leica M10-R
Posted on Jul 21, 2020
Made in Leica’s Wetzlar factory, the Leica M10-R is a 40-megapixel compact rangefinder using a new, full-frame sensor specially designed for this model. The new arrival joins the Leica M10, M10-P and M10 Monochrom, to complete the M10 family.
The new sensor captures in 14bit Raw using the DNG format and in 8-bit JPEGs, and is capable of recording 13.5EV dynamic range. The ISO range is 100-50,000 and the new camera has exceptional high ISO/low light performance.
The M10-R features Leica’s classic rangefinder system, so no EVF here, but instead a precision optical system with coincident image manual focusing and brightline frames, to indicate lens field of view.
Leica M cameras are renowned for their quiet shutters, making them perfect when discretion is needed; the M10-R is no exception, and it features the same mechanical, extra-quiet, low vibration shutter as found in the M10-P.
