Leica M-10R

Allendale, NJ—Leica Camera AG debuted a new design variant of the Leica M10-R. With a black paint finish, the new Leica M10-R embodies the classic Leica look; over the years, glimpses of brass will gradually show on the corners and edges. This will result in a unique patina.

In addition to the high-gloss finish, there are some external details that distinguish the design variant from its serially produced counterpart; however, the technical specifications are identical in both models. The Leica M10-R mirrorless rangefinder-type camera delivers a resolution of more than 40 megapixels.

Leica M10-R Variant’s Features

The camera’s differences include the classic Leica lettering on the top plate, along with an Ernst Leitz Wetzlar Germany engraving. Also, the red Leica dot was omitted to create an understated appearance to facilitate an unobtrusive approach. Moreover, as with all Leica M cameras, the variant employs an ultraquiet shutter; this enables photographers to capture scenes at close proximity without drawing undue attention.

What’s more, the ISO and shutter speed dials both feature diamond-pattern knurling; the shutter button is distinguished by a silver-chrome finish.

“Reliability over many years of use, combined with high value retention, count among the distinguishing traits of this exceptional camera. They are also a testament to the consistent implementation of Leica’s company philosophy,” the company announced.

“Throughout the decades of its extraordinary history, Leica has placed a focus on sustainability. For example, by developing the Leica M bayonet back in the 1950s, the company created a timeless lens mount standard. As a result, even vintage lenses from the era of analogue photography can still be used on the new black-paint Leica M10-R today.”
