New Leica M-D Typ 262 News!
More details of the forthcoming Leica M-D Typ 262 have shaken themselves free of the grapevine within the last 24 hours. We are now expecting to hear an official announcement early in May of this year, and we have also now got an idea of a ballpark price for the new camera. The EU RRP will be 5,940 euros, which equates to around $6,700, which is more expensive than the M Typ 262 but remember, EU and US prices are never directly comparable to each other upon product release. The M-D will feature the same sensor as the M and will supposedly feature ‘Analog Leica M-A size and looks’, which would mean that Leica is aiming to squeeze all the technology into a smaller package, great news for portability lovers, although remember, this camera will have no rear LCD screen.
