Leica M-D: M minus Display

Share:



Today Leica introduced a new variant of the Leica M (Typ 262). Like the M262, the M-D262 distinguishes itself as much through the features it has to offer as those that have been omitted – and on that count, it even supersedes the M262.

While both the M262 and the M-D262 were designed without Live View, video mode or a provision to use an electronic viewfinder, the new M-D262 further lacks a rear display – a concept that was previously implemented in 2014, when Leica marked the 100th anniversary of Barnack’s full-frame camera and the 60th birthday of the M with the special-edition M60, limited to 600 units.

So what does the M-D262 offer? The four essential settings of photography: shutter speed, aperture, focus and ISO sensitivity; a rangefinder that has been fundamentally improved for the M240, matching the accuracy of an electronic viewfinder image; and all the other advantages of the M system, not least including its exquisite lens portfolio.
The display-less, digital Leica M-D262 almost transports you back into analogue times – and should you be so disciplined as to wait for three days before viewing the contents of your memory card, it really will be as though you were there.
