leica AG has presented the latest model in their rangefinder camera segment. based on the otherwise identical leica M, the 24 megapixel leica M-P type 240 offers all the technical advantages of the M system and several additional features such as an enlarged buffer memory capacity of 2 GB, a scratch resistant display-cover made of sapphire glass and manual viewfinder frame selection with traditional ‘image frame selector’. the exterior boasts a reduced aesthetic without the leica logo and ‘M’ lettering on the front side. the leica M-P in silver chrome finish will be available from late august while the black paint finish version will be available from mid-september.
