Tonight, in one of my online events, Leica has officially announced the flagship product of the “family” M10, named Leica M10-R.

In terms of appearance, the M10-R will be quite similar to the M10-P when there is a new generation quiet shutter, 1.04 million touch screen, 0.73x viewfinder, ISO rotation typical of the M10 series, only different in Internal sensor only.
According to Leica, the new generation 40MP sensor, despite its significantly higher resolution than the previous 24MP sensor, still has high ISO noise cancellation and good dynamic range thanks to the processor. photo Leica Maestro II.
Although the ISO range is still at 100-50,000, Leica said the new camera will give better low-light capability, in addition to the fluctuation range will be on par with the M10 Monochrom. The maximum exposure time also increased to 16 minutes (when taken at ISO 100).
According to Leica, the new M10-R will work perfectly with new lenses with higher definition, but will also be an upgrade for older generation lenses, with “typical imaging features that new lenses cannot.”
Leica M10-R will be priced at $ 8,295 with 2 color options, Black and Silver, and will be shipped later this month.
