Leica’s New ‘Pinnacle’ Rangefinder

The new M10-R packs a 40-megapixel sensor and tactile allure.

Headlining the world of ultra-premium world cameras, Leica has released its ‘pinnacle’ rangefinder, the M10-R.

Visually similar to the M10 and M10-P, the fifth model in the range shares the same body, touchscreen, interface, battery and processor. There is, however, a hefty upgrade with the newcomer boasting a 40.89-megapixel full-frame sensor – a significant step up in resolution over the 24-megapixel offered by the M10-P.

The sensor’s benefits go beyond resolution, with the M10-R increasing its ISO range, now at 100 to 50,000 and boosting its low-light credentials.

As part of the M10 range, the new camera still holds all the charm of an old-school rangefinder, with the lack of autofocus, all-metal, die-cast magnesium body, minimalist controls and aperture controls on the lens ring providing a tactile experience.

Despite delivering an expected old-school feel there are some mod-cons – the 3-inch touchscreen and processor not slowed by the new resolutions and file sizes, the M10-R also boasting built-in wi-fi that aligns to the Leica FOTOS app.
