Leica cameras are never cheap. Never, ever. The question, can you one up that? How about a snapper with the usual Leica sticker, but only shoots black and white images exclusively? Well, if that’s right up your monochrome alley, then folks, embrace the new Leica M10 Monochrom.
For a cool $8,295, you’d be bagging a newly developed 40 MP full-frame black-and-white sensor, new WiFi capabilities and expanded ISO range (160-100,000). Other features include silent mechanical shutter, touchscreen monitor, and ISO dial borrowed from the M10-P platform.
As far as the camera body is concerned, it has an aesthetic that echos the camera’s black-and-white specialization.
It has a monochromatic design, blacked-out shutter button and lens release button, white and gray engravings, and like the “Ghost”, the iconic red Leica branding has omitted. How’s that a for specialized black-and-white snapper?
No words if Leica will be rolling out black-and-white aesthetic lenses too. Just kidding, they won’t. Right?
