A Love Affair With The Leica M-D 262 – by Ong Sien Hong – 35mmc

The first time I saw the Leica M-D 262, I almost instinctively knew that I’d got to have it. I love the way it looks. Stylish and minimalist for a digital camera. I couldn’t afford it brand new so I waited to snag a used one at a reasonable price. Sure it shares the same body and sensor as the Leica M240 but it doesn’t quite feel the same holding it in the hand. Furthermore, it comes with a quieter shutter sound. I’d read about how, because of the lack of LCD screen, when you hold an M-D 262, it feels slimmer (not that it actually is slimmer); it’s all true, that was how I felt the first time I touched it.

A Final Review of the Leica Q: 3.5 Years in the Making – PhotoShelter Blog

I say this with partial irony as I’ve just upgraded to a Leica Q2 after having owned a Leica Q for 3.5 years. But my Leica Q is still an amazing camera, and given that there are many good deals on this camera to be found, I thought it would be a good time to re-review the camera after using it for 40 months and taking over 60,000 photos as it traveled with me to 19 countries.

As a moderate wide-angle prime, the new APO-Summicron-SL 35 f/2 ASPH. is a universal lens. Its fast autofocus, robust construction and exceptional imaging quality make it a go-to lens for all areas of photography. It also couples beautifully to the Leica SL-System and has been conceived for a long working life under professional shooting conditions.

Leica has announced the new M10-D, a rangefinder with “a digital heart and an analog soul.” From the outside, it looks like Leica’s digital M rangefinder line has gone back to the world of film photography.

The Story of Sean Flynn’s Leica M2

This is a story about a camera, a rather special camera. Every camera has a history, so they say. But it is not all that often that one has such a rich and documented history. One that was thought to be lost but has been found again. This is the story of Sean Flynn’s Leica M2.
