Leica has officially launched its rangefinder, the M-D (Typ 262). All the traditional rangefinder qualities, but without an LCD display. Simple and intuitive control via the shutter speed and ISO dials, the only exposure controls on the camera body. An impressive 24 megapixel CMOS sensor and ISO up to 6,400 will ensure excellent image quality. The top and bottom plate are brass with a classic Leica black paint finish. Made in Germany.
The Leica M-D has nearly a silent shutter that is fantastic for street photography and enables a shutter release of two frames per second. This is due to a shutter cocking system that is considerably quieter in single exposure mode than that of the M (Typ 240) and enables a shutter release frequency of up to two frames per second. In continuous mode, the M-D has the same sequential shooting speed as its sister model and shoots up to three frames per second.
We are now accepting pre-orders for May delivery. The price of the M-D body only is $5,995.00. Please stop by the store or call Walnut Creek (925) 935-1424 or Racho Mirage at (760) 992-5422.
