Leica Modestly Updates the M

Leica today announced the M-P Type 240 rangefinder camera. Priced US$700 more than the M Type 240, the M-P has four small changes:

  • 2GB internal RAM increases the buffer size to 24 images at 3 fps.
  • A sapphire cover of the LCD makes it more scratch resistant.
  • A new control that allows you to manually select the frame lines.
  • Removal of the Leica logo red dot on the front.

The new camera is available in silver and black finishes, and uses all M accessories except for cases (due to the new control).
