A Timeless Witness of Light

Leica Camera is excited to introduce the latest version of the company’s legendary rangefinder camera: the Leica M10-R, complete with a new 40 megapixel full frame color sensor and all the improvements of the entire generation of M10 cameras. Each and every engineering development and design accomplishment of 3+ years of M camera development has been distilled into this new model and maximized with the new capabilities brought by this 40 megapixel full frame color image sensor. The M10-R reaches new heights of image quality with even improved high-ISO performance and increased dynamic range.

The Leica M10-R matches the resolution of its sibling model, the Leica M10 Monochrom, becoming the new flagship of the ongoing family of M10 cameras. The M10-R allows its users to dive deeper into their images and pull out more detail and richness from their storied Leica M-Lenses. The M10-R is perfect for photographers who want the maximum image quality and the ultimate Leica M rangefinder experience.

The incredible Leica M10-R will be available in the unique and highly sought-after black paint finish. Launched in the summer of 2020, the M10-R elevated the M-System to new heights of resolution and color fidelity for capturing timeless imagery. Now the M10-R is offered in a limited run of this iconic finish, omitting the red dot logo in favor of the classic script and "ERNST LEITZ WETZLAR" engravings on the top plate. Additional attention was paid to the cross-knurling of the dials and the silver finish of the shutter release, akin to the MP film camera. The high-gloss paint finish feels exquisite in the hands, looks attractive in the metal, and will over time develop a patina and look that is wholly your own.

Witness the world through the eye of a rangefinder camera, and embrace the classic look of the brass underneath that will slowly expose itself as you imprint your use on the camera over a long period of time.

The essentials:

  • Based on Leica M10-R
  • No red Leica logo on front side
  • On top cap: Classic Leica script combined with the "ERNST LEITZ WETZLAR GERMANY" engraving
  • Glossy black paint finish
  • Classic silver chrome shutter release plate
  • Dials with cross-knurling
