Expert Review

PhotoRadar
2 October 2014
  • Conclusion: The most visually impressive feature though is easily the new rear screen. Having suffered the ancient technology of the Monochrom's screen recently, the 920,000-dot, 3-inch panel on the M 240 makes a very welcome change – and a very significant improvement.
  • Pros: Classy raw files that are packed with information, Lovely colour and contrast straight from the camera, New rear screen is clear, bright and high resolution, Pleasure-to-use body with first class lenses, Live View makes longer lenses easier to use
  • Cons: Exposure compensation button not always easy to use, Level tool only useful for tripod users, Menu could be easier and quicker to navigate

Leica M (Typ 240)

PC Magazine
25 April 2013
  • Conclusion: The Leica M (Typ 240) is the camera that many a rangefinder photographer has been waiting for. It fixes many of the issues of previous models, but it doesn't come cheap.
  • Pros: Big, bright optical viewfinder. Large, high-contrast rangefinder focusing patch. Full-frame CMOS image sensor. Compact for a full-frame camera. Live view with focus peaking. Detailed images at every ISO. Impressive build quality. Sharp rear LCD. Resistant to dusts and splashes. Optional EVF avail...
  • Cons: Very expensive. A little slow to start up. Manual focus only. 1080p video could be better. Odd auto ISO exposure issue.

PC Magazine
20 April 2013
  • Conclusion: The APO-Telyt-M 135mm f/3.4 is the longest lens available for the Leica M system. It can be tricky to focus, but Live View makes it easier to use.
  • Pros: Compact. Very sharp. Apochromatic design. Longest focal length available for M system.
  • Cons: Expensive. Manual focus only. Limited close focus distance. Small frame lines with digital M cameras.

Leica unleashes M Monochrom for B&W photography and X2, the compact with a DSLR-quality sensor

Gadgetmania
13 May 2012
  • Conclusion: The 16MP Leica X2 features an APS-C format CMOS image sensor similar to professional cameras. The high-end sensor works hand-in-hand with the Leica Elmarit lens (24mm f/2.8 ASPH) in producing images with great quality. X2 features an enhanced autofocus system so it can adapt to different situations.

Leica M Typ 240 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: In updating the Leica M9 with more current features, one can't help get the feeling that Leica has slightly missed the point with the M Typ 240. Yes, the additions of live view, an EVF and full HD video are welcome (especially for Leica R-mount owners), but these features have handling snags that...

The new Leica M (2013) pictures and hands-on

Pocket Lint
18 September 2012
  • Excerpt: There's something to be said for Leica cameras. The M-series is rather like the fine art of the camera world: the M9, for example, has its Pollock-esque imperfections, but they add to its charm. Pop a Leica lens on the front of the M9 rangefinder and, well, need we say more? It's imaging perfection.
